Function

Airflow in a duct creates a pressure difference between the front and rear probes.

The corresponding airflow rate can be defined by measuring the pressure difference sensed by the two crossing sets of averaging probes.

Installation

In order to ensure the accuracy of the airflow measurement the safety distances between the measurement unit and flow disturbances (e.g. bends, T-branches) have to be respected. The necessary safety distances before and after different disturbances are presented in figures below.

The figure below describes also the recommended axial orientation of measurement probes related to bends and T-branches.

Measurement

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:

NS k factor
100 5.7
125 9.4
160 17.2
200 27.8
250 43.9
315 72.3
400 127.0
500 200.0

Defining flow measurement with electronic control unit

With model Halton MSD, MU=B airflow can be defined using integrated airflow control unit (VRD3). The actual measured airflow rate (qv) can be defined by the controller feedback signal (U5) and air flow measurement unit’s nominal airflow (qv_nom).

 Signal  Formula  Controller type and mode Terminals
system
neutral
Terminals
signal
0…10 VDC  qv = qv_nom*U5 / 10 MSD, MU=B
Mode 0…10V
1(GND)  5 (U5)
2…10 VDC
(default set)
 qv = qv_nom*(U5-2) / 8 MSD, MU=B
Mode 2…10V
1(GND)  5 (U5)

Nominal airflow rates of Halton MSD are presented in the table below:

NS qv_nom
100 70 l/s (252 m3/h)
125 115 l/s (414 m3/h)
160 210 l/s (756 m3/h)
200 340 l/s (1224 m3/h)
250 538 l/s (1937 m3/h)
315 885 l/s (3186 m3/h)
400 1555 l/s (5598 m3/h)
500 2449 l/s (8816 m3/h)
