AIR DUCT SYSTEM


1. DUCT CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS 2. DUCT CONFIGURATIONS 3. VINADUCT SYSTEM 4. DUCTWORK INSULATION 5. DUCTWORK INSTALLATION Activair air ducting Low capital and installation cost Very inexpensive to purchase. Easy to install. Quick installation - typically 80% faster than metal ductwork. Lightweight Easy to handle and install. Minimal load on building structure. Easily shipped using low cost carriers.

CK05 BNH

COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL METAL DUCTWORK ACTIVAIR AIR DUCTING HAS MANY ADVANTAGES
Traditional metal ductwork High cost Expensive to purchase. Requires specialist installation. 4/5 times the man hours to install compared to Activair air ducts. Heavy Specialist handling and lifting equipment required. Strong suspension points needed, structure may need strengthening. Transport costs high.

1. DUCT CONSTRUCTION MATERIALS 2. DUCT CONFIGURATIONS 3. VINADUCT SYSTEM 4. DUCTWORK INSULATION 5. DUCTWORK INSTALLATION Low maintenance Activair air ducting will never rust, corrode or rot. Activair air ducts are resistant to most chemicals, moisture, dust and airborne particles. Even air distribution Large numbers of small holes create balanced air distribution. Draft free ventilation. Even temperatures throughout the building

COMPARED TO TRADITIONAL METAL DUCTWORK ACTIVAIR AIR DUCTING HAS MANY ADVANTAGES

High noise Noise caused by faster air movement at less outlets. Metal air ducts can vibrate and amplify air and fan noise.

Temporary/Portable Installation Permanent/Fixed Installation Activair air ducts roll up and store Bulky, difficult to dismantle for when not required. storage. Quick removal and re-installation. Time consuming to remove and reerect. Flexible Rigid Passes easily around obstructions - Complex designs are needed to joists, piping, trusses, etc. avoid obstructions. Activair air ducts deform to pass Metal air ducts do not deform. through tight spaces, between obstructions etc.

- Provides the greatest cross-sectional area (ie air carrying capacity) of any of the duct families for any given maximum width or height dimension. - Simplicity, ease of manufacture and corresponding economy of its fittings. - Every conceivable transition and fitting can be fabricated in the rectangular format and done so inexpensively--often with only four pieces, which pieces may be computed and automatically cut from sheet metal stock - The edges of the several constituent pieces that define the fitting may be brake or machine-formed to create a Pittsburgh, snap-lock or similar seam whereby the fitting may be expeditiously assembled without resort to welding or similar time-consuming attachment measures

- The short lengths of duct sections available and the relative complexity of manufacture of such straight sections - Straight sections of virtually any length could, in theory, be made simply by rolling out sufficient stock, only certain size ducts may be thus fabricated within the five foot width constraint without substantial sheet metal waste - The tradeoff is duct the maximum length of which is the width of the coil stock employed

- Literally wound as a solid helix from a relatively narrow coil of about six inches in width - The diameter of the finished circular duct is that of the solid helix and may be any reasonable diameter - The absence of length restrictions such as found with rectangular duct, at least aside from the obvious practicalities of handling excessively long duct sections - Any length duct may be fabricated by continuing the helical winding process until the desired length is reached

Advantage
- Comes closer to approximating the air carrying capacity of rectangular duct while not, as noted, sacrificing the advantages obtained from circular duct

Short coming
4. DUCTWORK INSULATION 5. DUCTWORK INSTALLATION

- Fittings for flat-oval duct are considerably more difficult to manufacture than corresponding rectangular fittings - The continuously curved edges that define these gore sections renders the machine formation of seams difficult and expensive

The measuring bend has two measuring connectors, each phaced in its own cup, which allows up to 50 mm of insulation. Measuring bends are suitable for measuring in the regulation situation, but also for continuous control measurement of the volume flow. The measuring bend can be included as a permanent measuring point as early as the planning stage

25

Measuring the air flow is very easy. Simply remove the plastic caps from the measuring connectors and install the measuring tubes. The differential pressure can be read off a manometer

With an asymmetrical velocity profile, measurement values may deviate from the ideal. The measuring bend should, therefore, not be placed immediately after a damper, bend or t-piece. Reducers have a negligible effect on measurement values

The TDRL damper consists of a cleaning hatch, a fitted damper blade and a T-pipe in the branch of which the cleaning hatch can be fitted with precision The PSDRL is like the TDRL, but has a PSL take off. This means that the damper can be easily incorporated into an existing duct system. Inspection and cleaning of the ventilation system is very easy because the damper and cleaning hatch because the damper and cleaning hatch can be removed quickly.

 During the wrapping process of installation, the fiberglass is pulled tight around corners causing packing which interferes with the ability of the fiberglass to achieve full insulating R-value  Fiberglass must be carefully installed and kept dry to reach and maintain its stated R-value  Has no effect on radiant heat transfer

 The cost can be high compared to traditional insulation.  Can shrink slightly while curing if not applied on a substrate heated to manufacturer's recommended temperature.  Contain hazardous chemicals such as benzene and toluene. These are a potential hazard and environmental concern during raw material production, transport, manufacture, and installation.  Many foam insulations are made from petrochemicals and may be a concern for those seeking to reduce the use of fossil fuels and oil. However, some foams are becoming available that are made from renewable or recycled sources.  R-value will diminish slightly with age. Even after this process, the stabilized R-value is very high.

NOTES IN INSTALLATION

1. Install duct fully extended; do not install in the compressed state or use excess lengths. This will noticeably decrease friction losses.

5. DUCTWORK INSTALLATION

2. Avoid bending ducts across sharp corners or incidental contact with metal fixtures, pipes or conduits. Radius at center line should not be less than one duct diameter.

5. DUCTWORK INSTALLATION

3. Do not install near hot equipment (e.g., furnaces, boilers, steam pipes, etc.) that is above the recommended flexible duct use temperature. 4. Do not use for vertical risers in air ducts systems serving more than two floors. 5. Avoid installations where exposure to direct or indirect sunlight or UV producing air treatment devices can occur. Prolonged exposure to sunlight or UV light may cause degradation of the core material or the vapor barrier. 6. Should not be installed within 4 inches (101.6 mm) of hot equipment (furnaces, boilers, steam pipes, etc.) that is above 250o F (121o C). 7. Should not penetrate walls where fire dampers are required. 8. Should not be installed in concrete, buried below grade or in contact with the ground.
