Duct manifolds are manufactured using corrosion-resistant ABS plastic.
The insulating properties of this material prevent condensation making them ideal suited for use with heating/cooling air conditioning systems (temperature 0 to 65°C / 30 to 140°C).
Frequently ordered models are manufactured by injection molding; other models made to answer customer specifications are produced by vacuum forming.
Duct manifolds serve as the air conditioning system distribution box and are installed between main ducts and flexible ducts or between A/C unit and flexible ducts.
The duct manifolds are right – triangular shaped with air in let at the base and flexible duct connections on the sideof the triangle.
Each side can contain 1 to 4 connections of various sizes, thus allowing air distribution to between 2 to 6 end users.
The inside of the manifold is lined with a polyethylene foam insulating sheet that covers all branch connections.
Openings intended to be used must be cut out.
Additional branches may be added later by opening closed outlets.
