Heat load thro wall is negligible
because of the following reasons
>North & South side:75% covered by
Plant houses
>East&West side – departments

Air Quantity Calculations
Volume of Air quantity required should be calculated from the following
formula:
Head load X Safety Factor
----------------------------------Specific Heat X Density of Air X ∆t
∆t : (Department temp – Air temp leaving Air washer)
(36 – 29)

According above formula 1057720 Cmh (622000 Cfm) = No of Air charge : 44 Since Kanjikode is a very humid place. We feel the method of calculation of exhaust will be wrong.34O C The above assumption is wrong As per Psychometric chart For outside dry bulb 40O C & wet bulb 28O C We can achieve DB of department 37O C for RH of 55% Exhaust Air We always keep exhaust capacity slightly more than the supply quantity. Plant No. In that case capacity gets reduced and maintaining 95-100% of supply capacity. as most of our plants are old with efficiency 85%. Capacity of plant is 650000 cfm. NO new/Old fan will deliver morethan the designed capacity.7 is of static AF 20 fan and Cfm should be high. reason for floating fluff may be due to some other problems. As per the latest technology. SITRA has made an elaborate study and arrived at 672000 cfm of exhaust. we allowed more number of Air changes of 46.B of dept – 55 .650000 cfm Present Exhaust air capacity .13 No.5 is having ABC fan. The method of conducting The The Batliboi 8 bladed high contention of less Cfm which is same as plant study may be wrong. Exhaust Vs Supply The contention exhaust 85% of supply is an old theory for window construction building.6 gives more Cfm. exhaust are designed for 100% of supply because of windowless construction & closed chamber department. Plant Efficiency Plant No.672000 cfm (“V” filters fully clean condition) Room condition Assumption Outside Dry Bulb : Corresponding wet Bulb : 40O C 28O C RH of dept D. Floating Fluff Normally slit grills are prevailed to take care of floating fluff. Present supply air capacity . The reason being all our plants are having V filters. capacity of 750000 cfm seems wrong. contention of closing slit grill will aggregate the problem. Regarding exhaust air calculation by AirTek. . Your in above fan is incorrect as fan in plant No. which will chocked soon after cleaning.

But recent supply of Batliboi motors are ‘flange mounted – 960 RPM ABB make motors. Old Batliboi 3.Energy Efficient Motor Old plant house motors are normal motors and we are replacing with energy efficient during replacement. . which are having efficiency of morethan 88%. Only old plants are having PVC nozzles and will be replaced with polycarbonate at the time of replacement. Also plants were added then and there and planning of trench is not perfect. All exhaust trenches were designed by “ABC” without running perpendicular to machine at particular interval. Regarding distribution of supply air. slit trench. slit trench parallel to machine will also be designed at every 4th machine. In addition. Duvent System 2. Spray Nozzles: Recent supply of new plants are of Polycarbonate. We will make a perfect planning and implement the same in the coming years. The same type motors are available in all our MIL plants and its performance is satisfactory. we have planned to introduce linear diffuser system perpendicular to machine 5 lines. ABC System Recently we are doing the replacement of 3 fan Duvent system with Batliboi High efficiency 8 bladed fans. Precot A Humidification plants comprises of the following make 1.
