Introduction
In todays diverse building environment, we are seeing an expanding role of VAV applications across many different market segments. While this is happening, it is necessary to make sure the VAV systems and diffusers in particular are applied, installed, and operated correctly. The purpose of this section of the catalog is to show these issues that need to be considered when selecting and placing diffusers.

Introduction

Diffusers
The VariTrane line of variable-airvolume (VAV) products has been an industry leader in performance and quality for many years. While most would associate the VariTrane name with VAV terminal units, the diffuser product line has grown significantly over the years. Room Air Distribution When variable-flow cooling and constant-flow heating are combined in a zone, the zone air diffusers are usually selected at partial cooling load to ensure proper operation. Ceilingmounted linear slot diffusers are recommended since they perform well over a wide range of velocities. Cool air delivery takes advantage of the Coanda effect, whereby cool air discharged through a linear slot diffuser hugs the ceiling before descending, insuring proper operation over a wide range of flows without dumping. When delivering warm air with constant flow velocities, or warm/ cool air with variable flow velocities, the flow velocity must be high enough to ensure that the air reaches the floor. To prevent stratification, the warm air temperature should not be more than 20F (6.7C) above the zone air temperature.

Linear Slot Diffuser (LINR) Linear slot diffusers NEVER DO THIS!! are most commonly (PERPENDICULAR AIR FLOWS) used in VAV systems. This type of diffuser has a fixed vane nominal airflow. If you start by using inside, which means that the pattern is 100% of the nominal airflow, you will not adjustable. The fixed vane allows a end up with high losses in wide range of flows through the performance, acoustical problems, and diffuser without causing drafts. Lower very little or no design flexibility. flanges provide ceiling tile support as A diffuser airflow rate is 50 cfm per an integral part of the diffuser housing. linear foot (77 .4 L/s per linear meter) of Recommended GuidelinesLinear Slot Diffusers Diffuser Placement The maximum recommended distance between diffusers is three diffuser lengths. For example, if the diffuser length is 4 feet (1.219 m), the maximum separation distance would be 4 ft x 3 = 12ft (1.219 m x 3 = 3.658 m). The maximum recommended distance for diffusers from an exterior wall, with parallel flow to the wall is two diffuser lengths. For example, if the diffuser length is 4 feet (1.219 m), the maximum distance from the exterior wall would be 4 ft x 2 = 8 ft (1.219 m x 2 = 2.438 m). A simple rule for better air circulation is to avoid placing supply air linear slot diffusers that allow airflows to collide at right angles. diffuser. Therefore, the recommended flow to use when designing is 50 cfm/ linear ft x 0.8 = 40 cfm/linear ft (77 .4 L/s/ linear m x 0.8 = 61.9 L/s/linear m). The nominal airflow of a diffuser is determined by multiplying the diffuser length, the number of slots, and the airflow per linear foot. Using the airflow per linear foot calculated above, a 4 foot, 2-slot, 2-way diffuser should be designed to handle 4 linear ft x 2 slots x 40 cfm/linear ft = 320 cfm (1.219 m x 2 slots x 61.9 L/s/linear m = 150.9 L/s). To maximize the effectiveness of ventilation with ceiling diffusers, throws should be kept as long as possible. For proper air circulation, try to maintain at least a 20F (6.7C) difference between the supply air and room temperature. This provides for optimum performance.

General Guidelines When beginning the placement and layout of diffusers, assume that each diffuser delivers only 75% to 80% of its

Collision Velocities The collision velocity is the speed at which moving air meets a wall or another airflow

In addition to choosing the correct diffuser type, the designer must properly size and place each diffuser in the zone to minimize noise and pressure drop while maximizing the throw and diffusion performance.

The VariTrane line of diffusers contains a variety of different models. The following is a list of the diffuser types

Introduction

stream. For exterior walls, the collision velocity should be between 100 and 150 feet per minute (FPM) (0.508 and 0.762 m/s). Do not exceed 150 FPM (0.762 m/s) on an exterior wall. For interior walls, the collision velocity should be between 50 and 75 FPM (0.254 and 0.381 m/s). Try not to exceed 75 FPM (0.381 m/s) for interior walls. The maximum recommended collision velocity between airflow streams should not exceed 150 FPM (0.762 m/s).The collision velocity between airflow streams is determined by the addition of both velocities at the point of collision. Avoid collision of air velocities at right angles to each other by trying to maintain parallel flow. Following this guideline will allow one to maximize the "Coanda" effect and proper air diffusion in a zone. Experience indicates that mixed air after collision near the ceiling and below 150 FPM will produce comfort in the zone at the occupant's level.

Fully Adjustable Pattern Flow (FAPF) The FAPF diffuser, a type of ceiling diffuser outlet, should be used with layin ceilings.The primary benefit of this kind of diffuser is that it provides the most flexibility of adjustment of the airflow pattern.The FAPF diffuser provides adjustable vanes for horizontal or vertical throw. The dualvane option allows each slot to be adjusted for left, right, or vertical throw. Besides pattern adjustments, the vanes also provide airflow dampering. In addition, the vanes are adjustable from the face of the diffuser so changes to the pattern can be made after the diffuser is installed. Vane Adjustable Pattern Flow (VAPF) The VAPF diffuser is very similar to the FAPF ceiling outlet diffusers. The primary difference is the design of the pattern adjustment vane.The VAPF diffuser should be used with lay-in ceilings. The pattern is adjustable for horizontal left, horizontal right, or vertical throw. The pattern adjustment vane contains a felt seal on the end to reduce air leakage around the vane. The vanes are adjustable from the face of the diffuser, allowing the pattern to be easily changed after installation. Vane Adjustable Pattern Flow Special (VAPS) The VAPS diffuser is a special version of the VAPF diffuser.The design of the vane is slightly different from the VAPF model, but the VAPS has the same functionality. The VAPS has been popular in certain regions of the country. Adjustable Air Bar Diffuser (AABD) The AABD diffuser is another lay-in ceiling type of diffuser.The difference between the AABD and the FAPF or the VAPF is that the AABD has no adjustment vane. A sliding air bar in the outlet of the diffuser makes the pattern adjustments. The pattern is adjustable for horizontal left, horizontal right, or vertical throw. Light Fixture Diffuser (LITE) The LITE diffuser should be installed on a suspended ceiling light fixture. This type of diffuser is quite popular with architects, because the number of ceiling penetrations can be reduced. The diffuser is available with an integral sliding volume damper and with or without pattern control vanes (some light fixtures already contain pattern control vanes). Both the volume damper and the pattern control vanes (if necessary) are

adjustable with a screwdriver from the face of the diffuser without removing the light fixture doorframe. The pattern control vane allows for either horizontal or vertical throw. Induction Diffusers (INDT, INDB, INSR, INCB) Induction diffuser discharges air in a tight pattern along a ceiling. The discharged air then induces the room air into the air stream to effectively mix the streams. Induction diffusers are typically used in exterior zones that have unusually high heat loads or drafts.They are designed to be installed in suspended ceilings and have high induction horizontal airflow. The center down blow option provides a vertical air pattern for exterior walls or glass. Induction diffusers have adjustable blades for volume and direction control.

INDT This type of induction diffuser contains a supply air outlet only. It will project air along a ceiling and provide mixing of the primary and room air streams. INDT This type of induction diffuser contains a standard supply air outlet along with down blow outlet. The down blow outlet will project a jet of primary air in a vertical direction while the standard outlet projects the induction jet.The down blow jet is often washed along an exterior glass window or aimed to combat something that is producing a draft in the space. INSR This type of induction diffuser contains a supply air outlet along with a separate return air inlet integrated into one device.This reduces the number of ceiling penetrations necessary. INCB This type of induction diffuser contains a standard supply air outlet, a down blow outlet, and a separate return air inlet integrated into one device.
Perforated Diffuser (PERF) The PERF diffusers are designed for use with lay-in ceilings and provide the most economical option for air diffusion. The pre-assembled diffuser is made to lay in a 24" x 24" (0.610 m x 0.610 m) ceiling opening and is available with multiple round inlet connection sizes. Outlets are available with disc or adjustable deflector. The air is projected in a circular pattern from the diffuser.

Return Air Slots Return air slots are placed perpendicular to supply air slots.This prevents supply air from bypassing the space, and allows for proper air circulation. With a suspended ceiling, low operating static pressure across the ceiling panels must be maintained. Failure to do so will cause the return air to be forced around the edges of the ceiling panels. When this happens, soiling of the panels will occur and the mechanical system can become choked for return air. A space-to-plenum pressure drop of 0.02 to 0.03 inches of water is acceptable under most conditions.

Vertical throw values are based on standard 12" long down blow slot and 3/8" width setting. NC - A one number evaluation of sound generation derived from sound power levels (re: 10-12 watts) less 8 db room absorption. (20) indicates less than 20 NC rating. Data shown is for one diffuser. Additional diffusers will tend to increase the NC value by perhaps 2 db each, depending on size, air quantity and distance from other diffusers. Return applications will add +2 db to all valves shown. Performance data is based on tests performed in accordance with ADC 1062 GRD-84 Test Code.
