Now the Pro-Fabriduct Full Coil Line produces duct with a full-width longitudinal seam which significantly reduces the chances of leakage in the transverse joint (up to 25%).
With the Pro-Fabriduct Full Coil Line, you can produce a better product (one with tangible benefits for your customers) while reducing your postproduction labor costs - that’s a competitive advantage you can take to the bank.
Full-Width Longitudinal Seam Production: What’s the Difference and Why Does it Matter?
Most HVAC duct leakage occurs at the notch hole that is produced at the top and bottom of the longitudinal seams of a duct section, at the transverse duct flange which is connected to the fan or the unit. The Iowa Precision Pro-Fabriduct Full Coil Line has undergone a combination of modifications to the processor, transfer system, and hydraulic servo wrap brake that allow it to produce a full-engagement longitudinal seam which allows you to deliver a finished duct with substantially less chances of leakage in the corners of the duct’s transverse joint.
Full-Width Longitudinal Seam Production can substantially reduce the chance of leakage with a greater deliverable thereby producing greater output with less input creating less chance of human error. The Full-Width Longitudinal Seam Production is applicable to our 5’ line, with 4’ or 5’ stock, and can be either Large-Pittsburgh and Small-Pittsburgh or Large-Pittsburgh and Snaplock.
