What is Considered Large Industrial Ductwork?

Standard residential and commercial ductwork incorporates round ducts up to a diameter of 18 inches, or rectangular ducts that are about 24 inches by 8 inches. The size of the duct corresponds to the air volume needs. In an industrial or manufacturing facility, these residential style ducts would not be efficient. They would overwork the system and deliver subpar results.

Large industrial ductwork can support large volume heating, cooling, and ventilation. It can keep pace with air volume requirements by featuring massive airflow passageways. All of these air volume requirements are calculated by engineers to maximize performance while making sure air quality is well within regulation. Large ductwork is most appropriate for facilities that process wood, handle chemicals, produce metals, refineries and food processing to name a few.

The Importance of Large Ductwork

Air quality is regulated by both OSHA and the EPA, so having the right ductwork size and design will not only improve working conditions but will ensure that the facility meets regulatory standards. When considering a large ductwork installation, consider the current air quality measurements and the size of the industrial space.  At Swanton, we know that customers play an important role in the design of large ductwork.
