Extreme Tolerance Solution

In this situation, ACR has worked with leading manufacturers in the defense industry to supply close tolerance products such as critical and non-critical air supply ducting. Critical supply ducting involves manufacturing a product that protects the health and well-being of the war fighter in a contaminated environment whereas non-critical (HVAC) ducting provides for a temperature controlled and safe crew compartment as well as an environmental control for mission critical components within the military vehicle.

Ducting for such applications entails the use of tight tolerances that are outside the normal industry standard to ensure and prevent introduction of contamination into the war fighters breathable air supply thus preserving the health and life of the war fighter.

Ducting for (HVAC) applications requires parts to be quickly assembled, disassembled and compatible with add-on ducting while minimizing loss of airflow due to gaps in the assembly joints.
