16 gauge Quick Fit (QF) pipe is available from Nordfab for applications that require thicker gauge pipe and also allows you to construct a ducting system by clamping parts together quickly, without welds, bolts, screws, flanges, special tools, precise measurements, or special skills. These heavier gauge QF pipes also have laser welded seams to eliminate any area on the inside of the pipe that might retain material or harbor dust. These pipes are manufactured with rolled ends for use with QF Clamps in order to facilitate quick assembly and disassembly and generally are manufactured in 5 foot Lengths.

16 gauge QF pipes are manufactured as follows:

  • In Galvanized only
  • With rolled QF end in diameters of 8 to 24 inches

When used with QF Adjustable Nipples, any straight length pipe run can be estimated and adjusted precisely to length during field installation

  • Construction: Longitudinal seam is laser welded.
  • Standard QF ends can be changed to Raw with a defined ID dimension (RawID), Raw with a defined OD dimension (RawOD), No Fitting or just a raw end (NoFit), Flexible hose adapter (RawFlex), Flat Flange (FFL), Angle Flange (ANGFL), or Van Stone (VanStone).

  1. At temperatures ranging between 390° F and 480° F, the zinc-iron alloy layers in the galvanized steel will continue to provide a high level of protection from corrosion. However, there may be some peeling, changes in mechanical properties, and reduction in the corrosion protection. Recommended maximum service temperature is 390° F.
  2. Rock River Silicone Sealant and Red Devil HVAC/R High Temperature Silicone Sealant are not able to be painted.
