I have a instrumentation project working where I will need to purchase
several sections of large dust collector ducting... 30" diameter 16 ga.
in 10-12 foot sections are the specification I have. There may also be
some smaller diameter pieces required, as well as 90's and LB's (perhaps).
I've talked to some 'custom' fab shops and their prices seem high... so
I wondered if there were any shops out there that mass-produce this kind
of thing and will ship to central Indiana reasonably?
Any of you folks have a shop or vendor you like?
You do understand what the word "specialty" means dont you? :-)
You talked to "some" fab shops and they seem high. Does that tell you
You want someone to make it for you cheap and then ship it? :-)
You do know what thats goina cost to ship, dont you? :-)
The customer pays for everything.
All that aside, you can try
Corken Steel Products
I dunno. Im guessing you're talking about "Spiral duct"?
That place just purchased the machines from another company that was
making it in Lousiville or something like that. I dont really
remember. I guess its special because its round and pretty. :-)
Not like the rectangular crap we all deal with. I have no idea. Its
expensive because not everyone makes it?
If it's only 16ga. you want to call a commercial sheet metal shop.
You can have it galvanized, or not. Sub to the insulators to finish it up.
For any custom positive pressure non-spec stack, that's the way to go.
Way cheaper than any pre fabbed/insulated stack system.
Disregard please . News server issues kept me from
the original post.
Yes, that amount of metal rolled and fitted, nice and square
with flanges for bolting up the sections will cost you a good coin.
What corners are they cutting to quote you ducts so cheap? That price is
nearly 1/4 of the cost that any reputable shop would charge.
Cheap, Quality, and Hoosier: Pick any two.
Don't make us say "we can't help it that you didn't pay enough".
Hah... That's one of MY favorite lines that you modified to take a ding
The real lines is "Do you want it cheap, good or fast... pick any two?"
That's in the service end of the business, anyhow....
Jake, these people are closer than California and they have reps in your
state, probably right in Indianapolis.
Air Control Products reps them in Cleveland and we have used their product,
its good stuff. They will fabricate right in the factory anything you need
and ship it to your supplier or job site. The reps usually will go to the
site and get exact measurments as well, at least ACP does. They have 60
Also, there is one right in Indianapolis
Hope this helps.
Jake I don't know how central you are, there's an outfit just a hair north
of Bloomington (about 50 miles more or less) south of Indy on SR 37. We have
used them on several occassions for exceptionally large projects that would
have otherwise overloaded our own fabrication capabilities. Their quality is
second to none, and when they give you a timeline you can take it to the
bank - considering those factors I have found them to be reasonably
competitive with regards to pricing. They are Poynter Sheet Metal with two
phone numbers (812) 935-6471 and (812)935-6472. They have several foremans
and managers, but I am personally familiar with the ethics and work quality
of Brad, you might ask for him - tell him you were refered by a friend of
Kirby's, should put you on a fast track with quotes at least.
