CPVC Duct Blastgate
CPVC Duct Blastgates
Vacuum suction is strongest when there is a direct flow of air, meaning that all other channels have been effectively cut off from air flow. The way you accomplish that is with a duct blastgate, sometimes referred to as cut-offs. By using a blastgate’s sliding blade feature to choke off the suction in any specific area, you can effectively strengthen suction where you need it most, allowing you to extract the highest amount of dust and debris at a localized area.

What Are CPVC Duct Blastgates and How Are They Used?
As the name suggests, CPVC duct blastgates are used at air ducts for controlling vacuum suction throughout an entire machine. CPVC duct blastgates are used in applications such as dust collection systems and HVAC systems. They typically are positioned near pieces of machinery so that they can block air flow when closed. By sliding down a blade feature on the duct blastgate, you can completely close off the airflow from any given duct and have better control of airflow elsewhere. In cases of heavy machinery, it is often possible to leave open multiple duct blastgates without sacrificing too much strength of the airflow. However, it is important for at least one duct blastgate to remain open at all times to prevent serious damage to the machine itself — such as an entire collapse.
What Is the Benefit of Using a Blastgate Made from CPVC?
At Commercial Industrial Supply, we carry the best selection of CPVC Duct Blastgates. The CPVC material is preferable over PVC because it allows the duct blastgate to be used for more applications. Whereas PVC limits use to heat exposures of 140 degrees or less, CPVC allows the duct blastgate to be used in settings where the temperature will go as high as 200 degrees. In addition to general high temperatures, CPVC is well suited for applications where fire performance might be a concern. In addition to its ability to withstand high temperatures, CPVC is also a preferred material for blastgates because it is cost efficient and easy to handle and install. It is highly resistant to the corrosion and abrasion that can happen as a result of heavy machine use, and many users prefer the CPVC option because it is more aesthetically pleasing.
