    Good points. I guess implicit in your reply is that both designs are acceptable in some cases.

    1/ No branch is more than 1,5m in length
    2/ There is only one main trunk, everything will be made...

    This particular board is coated with aluminium on the outside and a noise absorbing cloth on the inside. Pressure loss graphs are near identical to the ASHRAE ones for a galvanized tube and so the...

    Duct design: single o multiple branches

    I have two designs for the same airduct to be made from glass fibre duct board. The distribution duct passes by two rooms which both need cooling and one design has two single branches (like off...

    Hi yes I not from the US, was it the ductboard or the metric units?!!

    Isover states a max speed of 18m/s (3500 PFM) at 90°C and suggests an optimum flow of 8m/s (1500PFM) in its literature. As you...
  5. Recommended air flow velocity for glass mineral wool duct boards

    I have seen various speeds quoted in the forum and on the web for air flow velocities. Most sources dont quote material and I dont know if that is becuase the material does not matter (something I...

    by "Reach" I mean the distance travelled by the air leaving the grille, normally taken as the distance at which the velocity has fallen to <= 0,5 m/s
    The faster the air leaves the grille, the...

    2CFM per square inch = 0,5 m3/h per 1cm2. That is slightly oversizing the grills, there seems to be some difference between manufactures of double-defection impulsion grilles. Some makes required...

    Implusion grille sizing

    I read that impulsion grille size has an impact on (turbulence) noise and note that the target noise level seems to be 30-35 dBA in homes. If the duct behind the grille is correctly sized to maintain...

    SEER v EER for warmer climates

    I would appreciate comments on whether or not the new SEER rating (EU directive 626/2011) is a good indicator for efficiency in warmer climates. It is interesting to note that for heating they have...

    I would love to know where you get ERR breakdowns by load. This data is not released normally in Europe, or at least Mitsubishi, LG and Fujitsu dont give it.

    The 1kW min load is a night-time scenario and so the units would need to meet this 8hrs*7 nights or 35% the time.

    principally is the dynamic range. Can you identify HVAC that can work at 10% (ie cool at 10kW or 1kW)? Most seem to reach 50% at best.

    I can its not easy but if there a standard for the "nominal" numbers surely they could quote min compressor numbers using that?

    Or measure power consumption versus cool air production?

    Mitsubishi Electric and Daikin power consumption

    We are looking to install 2-3 ceiling concealed units in a large house. The key problem we have is dynamic range: the cooling/heating requirement can be a low as 1kW and as high as 10kW.

    thank you, that is 500 byt/hr sensible. 150W per appliance gives a much lower number.. Curiously that is what I was estimating for a PC with monitor.

    Thanks for the reference figures, which in SI are:
    900 fpm= 4,6 m/s
    700 fpm= 3,6 m/s
    500 fpm= 2,5 m/s

    I guess these figures are the limits to avoid noise? Should the design slow airflow in the...
