Novaflex Launches New NovaVent(TM) Sealed Vent Product Line

Richmond Hill, Ontario - Novaflex's revolutionary new NovaVent(TM) venting system offers a lightweight and leak-proof alternative to traditional welded stainless steel pipe in industrial new building construction projects. NovaVent(TM) offers a fully-sealed, gasket connection combined with a precision-engineered, close-tolerance construction, making leaky and life-limited welded connections a thing of the past. With their long-standing reputation as an innovative and quality manufacturer of flexible venting, ducting and hose products, Novaflex has launched NovaVent(TM) as their innovative solution to industrial rigid venting applications.

In the construction of new buildings such as hospitals, schools and laboratories, venting systems to vent potentially noxious fumes out of science labs and chemical processing rooms are typically specified to be sealed. Up until now, this has usually meant using a welded system made from joining various lengths of metal pipe. Novaflex's new NovaVent(TM) is a factory-built, engineered venting system designed to alleviate much of the time and labour costs associated with welded systems.

In a traditional welded system, lengths of pipe must be welded on-site. This welding process necessitates the use of a heavier-gauge metal than is required for the vent's purpose. NovaVent(TM) components are supplied with patented, factory-installed, self-sealing gaskets which eliminate the need for field-welded joints. The Double Fail Safe(TM) gaskets in the NovaVent(TM) system are designed specifically for their application. This offers installers a simple, quick and safe way to build the venting system on-site, saving on labour and material costs. Combined with this innovative gasket system, Novaflex has developed a precision-engineered, close tolerance manufacturing process of the vent system itself to ensure an air and water-tight fit. The light weight of the NovaVent(TM) system also allows for a simpler and cost-saving hanger system, further reducing engineering headaches and project cost over-runs.

Another unique feature of the NovaVent(TM) system is that the single-wall version is the only metallic venting system that can be cut to length in the field, further reducing installation time and allowing this unique system to be installed in half the time of field-sealed systems.

NovaVent(TM) offers an industry-best leak test of 2 ½ times the UL pressure rating of 8" of water column with both, their single-wall and double-wall versions. Available in diameters from 3" to 24".
