Flexible Connector

A flexible connector is identified by the flexible high or low temperature lining between flanges. These connectors are designed to absorb vibrations, compensate for thermal expansion or contraction, and accommodate minor misalignments between components. By mitigating the transmission of vibrations from equipment like fans and blowers to the duct system, flexible connectors significantly reduce noise levels and prevent the propagation of vibrations throughout the building structure.

General Information:

Flexible connectors play an indispensable role in HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning) systems, serving as crucial components that bridge the gap between air handling units, ductwork, and other equipment. Additionally, their ability to flexibly adjust to movement and alignment issues ensures a continuous, unimpeded airflow, enhancing the overall efficiency and performance of the HVAC system.

The construction of flexible connectors involves materials that can withstand the temperature variations, pressures, and chemical exposures inherent in HVAC environments, such as fabric-reinforced elastomers or metal. This choice of materials ensures durability and maintains the integrity of the air seal over time, even under fluctuating operational conditions. Furthermore, the installation of flexible connectors simplifies the assembly and maintenance of HVAC systems, allowing for easier access to components for repair or replacement. This adaptability, combined with their functional benefits, makes flexible connectors essential for maintaining the operational reliability, energy efficiency, and comfort levels provided by HVAC systems in residential, commercial, and industrial buildings.
