Harmonised appearance of units for different functions:
Cooling water pipe connections are Cu10 with a wall thickness of 0.9–1.0 mm, fulfilling the requirements of European standard EN 1057:1996.
The maximum chilled-water circuit operating pressure is 1.0 MPa.
The supply-air duct connection diameter is 125 mm. With exhaust model connection diameter is 160mm.
The Halton CSW swirl comfort unit is designed to be installed flush with a suspended ceiling.
The primary supply air enters the plenum of the swirl comfort unit, from which it is diffused into the room with a swirl effect through nozzles and supply slots at the bottom of the swirl comfort unit. Nozzles are in a circle supplying air 360º radially. The supply air nozzle jets efficiently induce ambient room air. Induced air flows through the heat exchanger, where it cools. The supply air jet is supplied from the nozzles, creating swirl functioning. Some of the nozzles are openable, to enable different supply airflow rates.
The swirl comfort units and high-induction diffuser can be used in constant or variable airflow applications.
In variable airflow operation mode, the air flow is controlled by means of an integrated motorised Halton Air Quality control damper, with either room temperature or CO2 content as the ventilation demand indicator. Supply air supplied by the HAQ damper is mixed with the induction air at high efficiency.
It is also possible to use a Halton CSW unit for exhaust. The Halton CSW exhaust unit has integrated airflow adjustment dampers. Air flow can be adjusted later also, with ease – just open the front panel and adjust the damper position. An actuator can also be incorporated, to enable continuous control of the air-flow rate. It is also possible to install the motorised version afterwards.
Induction control in the occupied zone
Halton Induction Control is used for adjusting room air velocity conditions either when room layout is changed (e.g., in cases where the partition wall is located near the chilled beam) or when local, individual velocity conditions need to be altered. Induction adjustment has an impact on the induced room airflow through the heat exchanger, and therefore it either increases or decreases both the velocities in the occupied zone and the cooling capacity of the comfort unit.
Pos.1 = Flush Pos. 2 = Enhanced Pos.3 = Boost.
Halton Induction Control uses manual velocity adjustment with three settings.
The supply airflow of the swirl comfort unit nozzle jets depends on the static chamber pressure, which can be adjusted by means of a separate air-flow adjustment damper, for example.
Halton Air Quality control is an option for adjusting and/or controlling the rate of outdoor air flow in a room space. The air-flow rate is dependent on the opening position of the control damper and the static chamber pressure.
Airflow adjustment is needed when the use of the space changes and there is need to adapt the supply-air flows. Air-flow rate can also be automatically adjusted to demand via a motorised control damper. When there is a need for demand-based ventilation, motorised HAQ can be used for adjusting air flow in VAV operation.
A swirl comfort unit equipped with HAQ manual air-flow rate adjustment can be retrofitted for motorised operation for demand-based ventilation.
It is recommended that swirl comfort units for demand-based air flow be connected to a constant‑pressure ductwork zone when
The appearance of different units with constant, adjustable, or variable air flow is identical.
The Halton Air Quality control unit’s position and the selection of swirl comfort unit nozzle size allow adjustment of the primary air-flow rate in the space. The separate air-flow-adjustment damper installed in the duct branch is used for balancing the air flows in the ductwork. When a motorised air quality control (HAQ) unit is used, the maximum and minimum air flow are adjusted with the stroke-limiters of the damper.
The primary air-flow rate of each beam is adjusted by means of the Halton Air Quality control unit during installation and commissioning.
The Halton CSW exhaust model can be used for constant- or variable-flow exhaust applications.
The exhaust version is equipped with a built-in damper for easy adjustment of airflow rates to meet the flow demands as they change during the building’s service life.
In variable airflow applications, the exhaust damper is equipped with an actuator enabling control on the basis of the required exhaust‑air flow. Minimum and maximum air-flow rates can be set for different demands at any point in the building’s service life without any special tools, just by changing the position of stroke-limiters.
The appearance of both exhaust-air models is the same as that of supply-air diffuser units.
The cooling and heating capacities of the swirl comfort unit are controlled by regulation of the water-flow rate on the basis of the control signal of the room temperature controller.
Air quality control for a room space can be arranged via, for example, a CO2 sensor when room airtemperature is controlled separately through regulation of water flow. Alternatively, a temperature sensor can be used for air quality control, with the air flow modulated in the first sequence;, if the temperature exceeds that set, the water valve starts to open in the second sequence.
For heating mode, it is recommended that the temperature difference between jet outlet and room air be no greater than 3 °C. The inlet water temperature of the heat exchanger should not be higher than 35 °C. Optimal heating performance requires an appropriate primary air-flow rate, so the air-handling unit operates during heating season to ensure appropriate heating performance.
The Halton CSW swirl comfort unit is suitable for ceiling mounting flexibly in different positioning patterns in the room space. Air and water connections can be connected from any of four directions.
The variable airflow model is equipped with a motorised HAQ unit:
Each swirl comfort model is equipped with three brackets attached to the casing of the unit. The unit can be attached directly to the ceiling surface (H1 = 241 mm) or suspended by means of threaded drop rods (8 mm). Install the main pipelines of the chilled-water circuit above the level of the swirl comfort unit, in order to enable venting of the pipework.
The recommended chilled-water mass flow rate for Halton CSW is 0.02 to 0.06 kg/s, resulting in a temperature increase of 1 to 4 °C in the heat exchanger. For avoiding condensation, the recommended inlet water temperature of the heat exchanger is 14 to 16 °C.
Balance the water-flow rates of the swirl comfort unit by using adjustment valves, ideally for installation on the outlet side of the chilled-water loops. The cooling capacity of the swirl comfort unit is controlled by regulation of the water mass flow rate. The water mass flow rate can be controlled by means of an ON/OFF valve or a two- or three-way proportional valve.
Connect a manometer at the measurement tap, and measure the static pressure in the swirl comfort unit. The air-flow rate is calculated according to the formula below.

Determine the position, in millimetres, of the HAQ unit that corresponds to the air-flow rate at the actual chamber pressure level.
Adjustment of HAQ is done manually with the aid of the position scale by adjusting the opening of the unit. It is possible to verify the opening, in millimetres, from the position scale.
To ensure accurate adjustment, it is recommended to adjust HAQ position and at the same time read the target chamber pressure by using the manometer.
It is also possible to remove the HAQ unit from the frame, by opening the two knurled-head adjustment screws (4).

Switch off the power supply to the actuator.
Disengage the actuator gear for manual override position by releasing the knob (1).
Determine the maximum and minimum positions, in millimetres, that correspond to maximum and minimum air-flow rates at the actual chamber pressure level. The maximum and minimum positions are adjusted with two hexagonal socket set screws (2, 3). It is possible to verify the opening from the position scale (in millimetres).
Switch on the power supply of the actuator (24 VAC). The actuator calibrates the minimum and maximum positions automatically according to the limits set.
The actuator can be controlled from this point on via a 0 to 10 VDC control signal (0 VDC = min. position, 10 VDC = max. position).
It is also possible to remove the HAQ unit from the frame for adjustment, by opening the two knurled-head screws (4).
