Plenum for diffuser

Plenum for DFB and DFC.

  • Plenum for connecting DFB or DFC diffuser (supply, exhaust) unit to ductwork
  • Ensures proper function of the supply air diffuser
  • Access for ductwork cleaning
     

PRODUCT MODELS & ACCESSORIES

  • Model with sound attenuation material
  • Detachable airflow rate measurement and balancing module available.

The plenum shall be made of galvanised steel.

The plenum shall comprise an airflow measurement and adjustment module.

The plenum shall comprise sound attenuation material made of mineral wool.

The plenum reduces duct pressure and air velocity in order to supply air throughout the entire face area of the DFB or DFC diffuser and improve the air distribution quality and the noise level.

Function

 FUNCTION

 



The duct pressure and air velocity are reduced inside the PDA plenum.
Air is supplied into the space through the diffuser, improving the air distribution quality and the noise level.
The airflow rate can be adjusted using the optional measurement and adjustment module MSM or adjust manually with a REG

Installation

 INSTALLATION



 

  1. Plenum
  2. Spigot
  3. Clips
  4. DFB or DFC plenum

Plenum installation
The plenum is installed into the suspended ceiling with M8 drop rods (not supplied in the delivery) and connected to the ductwork with a spigot.
When equipped with a measurement and adjustment module, the recommended safety distance upstream of the device is at least 3xD, in order to ensure a reliable airflow rate measurement.
The units control spindle must not be excessively bent.

Diffuser installation
The diffuser is attached to the plenum via clips.
 

Adjustment

 ADJUSTMENT 

To aid in adjusting and measuring the air flow rate, it is recommended that the diffuser is connected to a plenum equipped with a MSM.
The supply air flow is determined by measuring the pressure difference with a measurement module.
Measure the differential pressure with a manometer. The air flow rate is calculated according to the following formula:
 

where:

∆Pm is the measured pressure (Pa)
is a factor given as a function of mounting and diameter
Qv is the airflow rate

 

The k factor for installations with different safety distances (distance of other items from the MSM):

  Safety distance
Sigot Diameter > 6XD min 3XD
100 6 7
125 10 12
160 19 22
200 28 32
250 49 51
315 78 -


Adjust the air flow rate by rotating the control spindle until the desired setting is achieved.
Lock the damper in position with a screw.
Replace the tubes and spindle in the plenum, and return the diffuser to its position.

Servicing

 SERVICING

 

Supply and exhaust
Detach the diffuser, clean the parts by wiping with a damp cloth.
Push the diffuser back into place by clipping the plenum.

Option: MSM
Remove the measurement and adjustment module by gently pulling the shaft; (not the control spindle or measurement tubes!).
Wipe the parts with a damp cloth, instead of immersing in water.
Reassemble the measurement and adjustment module by pushing the shaft back into place until the module meets the stopper.
Push the diffuser back into place.
