Return grille sound requirement

Return air grilles should be selected for static pressures. These pressures will provide the required NC rating and conform to the return system performance characteristics. Fan sound power is transmitted through the return air system as well as the supply … Continue reading

HVAC Controlling Casing Noise

Terminal boxes can sometimes be located over noisy areas (corridors, toilet areas or machine equipment rooms), rather than over quiet areas. In quiet areas casing noise can penetrate the suspended ceiling and become objectionable. Enclosures built around the terminal box … Continue reading

Types of Registers and Grilles

The spread of an unrestricted air stream is determined by the grille bar deflection. Grilles with vertical face bars at 0° deflection will have a maximum throw value. As the deflection setting of vertical bars is increased, the air stream … Continue reading

HVAC Air Noise

High velocities in the duct or diffuser typically generate air noise. The flow turbulence in the duct and the excessive pressure reductions in the duct and diffuser system also generate noise. Such noise is most apparent directly under the diffuser. … Continue reading

HVAC Vortex Shedding

Product research in controlling casing noise has developed a new method of reducing radiated noise. The technique is known as vortex shedding. When applied to terminal boxes, casing radiated noise is dramatically lowered. Casing radiation attenuation (CRA) vortex shedders can … Continue reading

HVAC Fire and Smoke Dampers

Ventilating, air-conditioning, and heating ducts provide a path for fire and smoke, which can travel throughout a building. The ordinary types of dampers that are often installed in these ducts depend on gravity-close action or spring-and-level mechanisms. When their releases … Continue reading

HVAC Pressure Requirement

The diffuser or grille minimum pressure for a given air volume reflects itself in ultimate system fan horsepower requirements. A diffuser or grille with a lower pressure rating requires less total energy than a unit with a higher pressure rating … Continue reading

HVAC Throw Requirement

Throw and occupied area air location are closely related. Both could be considered in the analysis of specific area requirements. The minimum maximum throw for a given condition of aeration is based upon a terminal velocity at that distance from … Continue reading

HVAC Air volume requirement

The air volume per diffuser or grille is that which is necessary for the cooling, heating, or ventilation requirements of the area served by the unit. The air volume required, when related to throw, sound, or pressuredesign limitations, determines the … Continue reading

HVAC Air-flow distribution

Bottom or side outlet openings in horizontal or vertical supply ducts should be equipped with adjustable flow-equalizing devices. Figure 17-6 indicates the pronounced one-sided flow effect from an outlet opening. This is before the corrective effect of air-turning devices. A … Continue reading
