How PIP Air Ducts Are Better Than Traditional Galvanized Tubes?

February 10, 2023

Air ducts play a crucial role in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems of industrial facilities. They are used to distribute cool air throughout the space, helping to regulate the temperature and improve the air quality. There are many types of air ducts available, including PIP air ducts and traditional galvanized tubes. While both options are good, PIP air ducts offer several advantages over galvanized tubes.

Benefits of PIP Air Ducts:

  1.  Energy Efficiency:
    PIP air ducts are made of a polyurethane insulated panel that is surrounded by a layer of metal. This insulation helps to prevent heat loss, which can lead to increased energy efficiency. In contrast, traditional galvanized tubes are not insulated, which means that they are more prone to heat loss and can result in higher energy costs.
  2. Durability:
    PIP air ducts are also more durable than traditional galvanized tubes. The polyurethane insulation helps to protect the metal from corrosion, which can extend the lifespan of the air ducts. In contrast, galvanized tubes are prone to rust and corrosion, which can shorten their lifespan and require more frequent replacements.
  3. Easy Installation:
    PIP air ducts are also easier to install than traditional galvanized tubes. They come in pre-cut and pre-insulated panels, which can be easily assembled on site. In contrast, galvanized tubes require more labor-intensive installation, as they must be cut to size and insulated separately.

Benefits of Galvanized Air Tubes:

  1. Cost:
    One advantage of traditional galvanized tubes is that they are generally less expensive than PIP air ducts. This can be an attractive option for businesses on a tight budget.
  2. Customization:
    Another benefit of galvanized tubes is that they can be customized to fit the specific needs of a facility. They can be cut to fit any size or shape and can be insulated with a variety of materials to meet the specific heating and cooling needs of the space.


In conclusion, PIP air ducts offer several advantages over traditional galvanized tubes, including increased energy efficiency, durability, and easy installation. However, galvanized tubes may be a more cost-effective option and offer greater customization. Ultimately, the best choice will depend on the specific needs and budget of the facility.
