Function

The static pressure control damper Halton HFS maintains the desired constant duct pressure based on a static pressure measurement signal from Halton MSS unit (0...10 VDC).

Halton HFS features:

  • For supply and exhaust installations
  • Complete shut-off function
  • Static pressure set point range of 0...1000 Pa (see MSS specifications)
  • Maximum differential pressure over the damper of 500 Pa
  • Operating range: ambient temperature of 0 to 50 ºC
  • Ambient relative humidity < 95%, non-condensing
     

Optimal and steady operation is ensured by using the Halton MSS static pressure measurement unit. The given safety distances shall be applied. Do not use any other pressure measurement units in order to ensure proper control accuracy.

The Halton MSS has several pressure measurement ranges, 0…100 Pa, 0…200 Pa (default), 0…500 Pa and 0…1000 Pa.

Airflow measurement may be done manually using model HFS-A and manometer.
Using model Halton HFS-B actual airflow rate is available as 0…10 VDC or 2…10 VDC signal.

The Halton HFS control damper contains a pressure controller (PC), which controls the damper actuator (FG) based on the feedback signal from the Halton MSS pressure transmitter (PE) so that the set value is realised.


 

Product Models

Halton HFS static pressure control damper is available in several versions.
The blade gasket enables airtight shut-off operation, and external insulation is used to attenuate radiated sound into the space and reduce heat transfer. Insulation model is covered with metal casing.

Control unit (CU)

All HFS models are equipped with pressure controller Belimo VRP-STP and actuator NM24A-V (CU=EP). When model Halton HFS/S-D-B is chosen, Halton HFS has an integrated flow measurement unit (Halton MSD) and an analog signal transmitter for measured flow.

Set point can be adjusted locally by set point potentiometer or remotely using 2-10Vdc signal.

See Halton MSS and Halton MSD technical data from HIT section for those in question.

Sound Attenuators

Sound attenuators are available with optional outlet diameters with mineral wool (MW) or polyester fibre (PEF) insulation materials and with 600 mm and 1000 mm lengths. Optionally the attenuator can be equipped with an access panel for cleaning and inspection purposes.

Commissioning

Setting duct pressure

The pressure controller has a set point potentiometer for pressure set point adjustment.

Local setting
The pressure controller VRP-STP includes a potentiometer for static pressure set point adjustment (range: 30…100% of the selected MSS unit pressure range).

An example:

  • Needed constant pressure set point is 120 Pa
  • Choose pressure range of 0…200 Pa in MSS
  • Adjust the set point potentiometer Dp% to 60% (=120 Pa / 200 Pa)

Remote setting
Set point can be set externally from building management system, air pressure range 0-100% corresponding to control signal range of 2-10 Vdc. Local set point potentiometer shall be set to 100%.
 

Defining measured duct pressure level

The actual measured static pressure level can be defined by the controller feedback signal (U5).

Signal  Formula  Pressure transmitter
 range
 2…10 VDC  Pst = 100 Pa * (U5-2) / 8 100 Pa
   Pst = 200 Pa * (U5-2) / 8 200 Pa
   Pst = 500 Pa * (U5-2) / 8 500 Pa
   Pst = 1000 Pa * (U5-2) / 8 1000 Pa

The actual duct static pressure can also be read from the picture:



Static pressure and output signal:
A = Pressure transmitter range 0…100 Pa
B = Pressure transmitter range 0…200 Pa



Static pressure and output signal:
A = Pressure transmitter range 0…500 Pa
B = Pressure transmitter range 0…1000 Pa
 

Defining the measured airflow

With model Halton HFS/ A air flow can be defined manually using integrated air flow measurement unit MSD.

Connect the measurement tubes to the manometer and read the pressure difference. The airflow rate is calculated using the formula below or by reading the airflow rate directly from the diagram:

D k
200 27.8
250 43.98
315 72.3
400 127.0

With model Halton  HFS/B air flow can be defined using integrated air flow measurement unit (Halton MSD + VRD3). The actual measured airflow rate (qv) can be defined by the controller feedback signal (U5) and the nominal airflow (qv_nom) of the airflow measurement unit (VRD3).
