Ezi-Duct  specialises in the design and supply of a comprehensive range of dust collection systems, pollution control systems, fume extraction systems and pneumatic conveying equipment in Australia.    

Modular ducting from Ezi-Duct was supplied to the UTJ factory located in Unanderra.    

UTJ Interiors is one of Australia’s premier manufacturers of custom joinery and detailed veneering products.   

Ezi-Duct modular ducting was used to replace an existing manifold with outlet spigots that had insufficient suction capabilities.  

Ezi-Duct’s modular steel ducting comprised of a multi-inlet branch piece with 150mm diameter inlets to form a ‘spider’.  

Ezi-Flex flexible ducting, 150mm in diameter was used to connect the machine to the multi-branch piece with stainless steel flexible hose clamps.  

Ezi-Duct also supplied a 350mm diameter butterfly damper, which was modified to allow the operator to use the long arm to turn the suction on and off. This also helped the operator to change the sanding belts so that the belts weren’t sucked in by the air.  

The modified feature also enhanced safety by eliminating the need for the operator to climb onto the machine to reach a slide damper.  

Installed by Jantech, the modular ducting system from Ezi-Duct improved the suction of fine dust from a Holytek wide belt sander, creating a safer and more pleasant working environment at the UTJ factory.    

The modular ducting was designed and manufactured by Ezi-Duct at its modern manufacturing plant located in Auburn.    

Key advantages of Ezi-Duct modular ducting systems: 

  • Simple, quick and easy installation, reducing installation time and saving costs
  • Duct work can be reused in different layouts to suit changing needs of the company such as machinery replacement or duct system expansion
