About Airtomic ® - Ducting Solutions

The Airtomic Story
Airtomic - Ducting Solutions, Franklin In 1888 Charles Lee Cook founded The C. Lee Cook Company in Louisville, KY producing the first metallic packing used on piston rods for locomotives and steamships. In time the C. Lee Cook Company designed and manufactured a variety of sealing ring products and went on to become a founding company of a multi-billion dollar manufacturing conglomerate and was then consolidated into Cook Airtomic. In 2001 Cook Airtomic relocated to Jeffersonville, Indiana producing piston rings, sealing rings, tubes, ducts, and manifolds, for the aerospace and defense, power generation and nuclear energy markets. In 2002 Cook Airtomic joined Sargent Aerospace and Defense and was renamed Airtomic.

Alignment Joints


3D Pneumatic Coupling
Airtomic’s patented pneumatic joint technology is based on allowing the greatest degree of freedom on motion, eliminating the potential for damage to ducts/tubes or joints. Don’t replace joints, just replace sealing rings. Airtomic’s alignment Joints… there is no comparison. We keep your ducts flying.

  • Lowers operating costs (less inventory required)
  • More efficient (fewer replacements)
  • Less maintenance; more uptime
  • No catastrophic failure

Airtomic’s alignment joints are the only coupling in the industry which provides true 3 dimensional freedom of movement. Axial, offset (angular), and torsional movement, virtually eliminates load on adjoining structures. Couplings are equipped to handle vibration, offset, torsion and thermal growth.

Spherical Angulation Joints


360° Torsion
Airtomic’s pneumatic joint technology is designed with a singular purpose:

Eliminate the potential for damage and keep your ducts flying.

  • Unlike legacy technologies on the market, Airtomic’s pneumatic joints do not have to be replaced.
  • Address wear-and-tear issues by simply replacing the sealing rings and you’re back in business.
  • Flexibility allows for thermal expansion with maximum degrees of axial, angulation, and total free torsion.
  • Couplings are equipped to handle loads while eliminating the concern of damaging adjoining structures.
  • Resistance to movement can easily be increased or decreased as required
