Flexible Connectors

To reduce vibration transmission to the building and to protect the equipment from dynamic stresses caused by fan vibrations, temperature fluctuations and other sources that can lead to maintenance issues and premature equipment failure and system downtime. Centaxia industrial fixable connectors are designed to handle high temperature, high pressure or vacuum, high material laded airstream or aggressive chemicals that are present in an airstream.

Flex material comes in a variety of compounds to accommodate airstream material content and temperature. For negative pressure applications, dirty airstreams or higher velocity flow rates, flex connectors often require internal deflectors to protect fabric. Flow liners also provide improved airflow thru the flexible connector reducing aerodynamic inefficiencies. Flanges and deflectors are constructed from carbon steel, zinc plated carbon steel, aluminum, and stainless steel.

Centaxia flexible connectors are useful for a variety of purposes in air handling systems.

  • To isolate weight and wind loading on fan housings imposed from stacks, ductwork, and silencers.
  • To isolate the transmission of vibration on inlets and outlets of fans and ductwork.
  • To allow for minor axial, radial, and rotational misalignment of duct or piping connections to fan inlets and outlets.
  • To accommodate expansion of components due to temperature.
