Food Grade Ductwork for Food Processing Facilities

Customizable Airflow Solutions

DuctSox fabric ductwork and diffuser products were initially developed exclusively for use in the food processing industry several decades ago. The flexible, durable fabric is a cost effective alternative to insulated stainless steel ducting and diffusers.

New innovations have made maintenance and hygiene a vital advantage to using DuctSox products in food-grade facilities. It is not only the outside of metal duct that gets contaminated, but the inside as well making fabric systems an ideal choice. A wide variety of product options, including shape, suspension systems, airflow types, and fabrics, make DuctSox an ideal choice for food processing and USDA-inspected environments.

Case Study: Venida Packing Company

A food packing company needed an air-conditioning solution for a lunchroom mezzanine. DuctSox was the obvious choice because of the practical side of the application, airflow, air distribution and aesthetics. TufTex premium fabric duct with a high-throw airflow was used to create a uniform linear diffusion. This entire system was installed in less than one day.

C-Series Fabric Diffuser

Why Fabric?

DuctSox's new C-Series Fabric Diffuser is a drop plenum diffuser providing any application space with 360 degrees of even air dispersion plus the many added advantages of being made from fabric. The C-Series utilizes DuctSox's patented SkeleCore internal tensioning system eliminating any fabric flutter while maintaining the same appearance with or without air.

Fabric Vs Metal

30-50% Lower Material Cost over Metal

The C-Series provides a better air distribution solution at significantly lower costs than comparable products. Application spaces that can’t use ductwork for physical or financial reasons, but still require air distribution are an ideal fit for the C-Series Diffuser.

Next Steps

When designing a fabric system, DuctSox engineers will detail performance and design requirements while creating a custom solution for your application.

In addition to design assistance, DuctSox provides an extensive Engineering and Design Manual that will guide you through the key elements of a DuctSox system.

Whether for a new building or retrofitting an existing space, DuctSox Airflow Solutions just make more sense than metal ductwork.
