    Yeah and your total friction loss should be no more than 0.5" of water. I would suggest looking into free air return as much as possible if you need to reduce the total pressure loss.

    You shouldn't go over 0.1"/100' for supply and 0.08"/100' loss for return to keep your velocities and friction losses reasonable. The Duculator is not that hard to use and it's a great tool. Thank you very much

    Your return air has approximately a 4 to 5 % increase in cfm and that's why you should use a lower friction factor. It's also easier in most cases to have the return duct size increased and this will help in the overall reduction in friction losses and increase the air flow accordingly. Thank you very much

    Hi,

    I would like to design the duct through McQuay ducting software . please let me know

    1 , For Example paricular room 600 l/s
    2, Equipment type:AHU
    3,How do we calculate head loss

    You should start a new thread for a new topic.
    You're going to need a lot more information than what you have provided.
    "Head" loss? Do you mean HEAT loss? That's yet another topic.

    Free online load calculator: http://www.loadcalc.net/


    There = not here. Their = possessive pronoun. They're = they are
    It's = contraction of it is. Its = the possessive form of it
    Too = also. To = expressing motion. Two = 2
    Then = after that, next. Than = indicates a comparison.
    Questions should end with a question mark "?" Statements end with a period "."

    Try https://ductcalc.ca
    It is online duct size calculator. It works in the browser. Mobile friendly. Using the fixed friction method, it calculates the dimensions and air velocity of both rectangular and round duct variations.

    It has a ductulator in it. I haven't totally finished it yet but it should work fine.
    It's not on google play store so you have to allow apps from unknown sources to install it.

    ACCA has their ductulator in an app that you can buy. I can see pros and cons to it, but the app is cheaper than the actual ductulator.
