The duct pressure and air velocity are reduced inside the Halton PLM plenum box.
Air is supplied into the space through the diffuser, improving the air distribution quality.

The airflow rate can be adjusted using the optional measurement and adjustment module MSM.


1.  Plenum box
2.  Measurement and adjustment module (MSM)

The Halton PLM is installed into the suspended ceiling with M8 drop rods (not supplied in the delivery) and connected to the ductwork with a spigot equipped with an integral rubber gasket.

When equipped with a measurement and adjustment module, the recommended safety distance upstream of the device is at least 3D, in order to ensure a reliable airflow rate measurement.

The units control spindle must not be excessively bent.


In order to enable airflow adjustment and measurement of airflow rate, it is recommended that the diffuser be connected to the plenum equipped with the MSM module.

The supply flow rate is determined by using the measurement and adjustment module MSM.

Detach the diffuser and pass the tubes and control spindle through the diffuser.
Replace the diffuser.

Measure the differential pressure using a manometer. The flow rate is calculated using the formula below:

∆pm      Measured pressure [Pa]
k           The factor given as a function of mounting and diameter
qv         Airflow rate [l/s]

The k-factor for installations with different safety distances
(D= duct diameter):

PLM > 6xD min. 3xD
160 19 22
200 49 32
250 51 51

Adjust the airflow rate by rotating the control spindle until the desired setting is achieved.
Lock the damper position with a screw.

Replace the tubes and spindle into the plenum and replace the diffuser.


Remove the measurement and adjustment module by gently pulling the shaft; (not the control spindle).
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.


The plenum is made of galvanised steel.

The plenum comprises an airflow measurement and adjustment module.

The diffuser is detachable in order to provide access to the measurement and adjustment module in the plenum.

The plenum comprises sound attenuation material made of mineral wool or polyester fibre.

The plenum reduces duct pressure and air velocity in order to supply air throughout the entire face area of the linear diffuser and improve the air distribution quality.
