    Duct sizing

    In order to know what size duct will go with a given CFM you will need to know what velocity you want to work with. For main trunk duct try to keep the velocity around 1000 to 1200 FPM. As you take...

    You may want to take a look at all the linkage to be sure some or all are not binding in the closed position. If the damper moves easily after the closed point a part of the system may be overdriving.
