Enter the duct height (in), the duct width (in), the duct length (in), and duct thickness (in) into the Duct Weight Calculator. The calculator will evaluate the Duct Weight.

## Duct Weight Formula

The following formula is used to calculate the Duct Weight.

DW = ((2*(H+W))*L*T)*D

Variables:

• DW is the Duct Weight (lbs)
• H is the duct height (in)
• W is the duct width (in)
• L is the duct length (in)
• T is the duct thickness (in)
• D is the duct density (lbs/in^3)
• .1 lbs/in^3 for aluminum

## How to Calculate Duct Weight?

The following two example problems outline the steps and information needed to calculate the Duct Weight.

Example Problem #1

1. First, determine the duct height (in).
• The duct height (in) is calculated to be : 10.
2. Next, determine the duct width (in).
• The duct width (in) is measured to be: 15.
3. Next, determine the duct length (in).
• The duct length (in) is found to be: 200.
4. Next, determine the duct thickness (in).
• In this case the thickness is .25 inches.
5. Finally, calculate the Duct Weight using the formula above:

DW = ((2*(H+W))*L*T)*D

The values provided above are inserted into the equation below and computed.

DW = ((2*(10+15))*200*.25)*.1 = 250.00 (lbs)
