Swimming Pool Ventilation

Posted by Price Industries on March 24, 2020 at 12:03 PM

Design Considerations for Natatorium Ventilation

Designing a ventilation system for a swimming pool can be tricky. For occupant comfort, these facilities require 40 to 60% relative humidity to be maintained year round. For swimmers, a humidity range of 50 to 60% is most comfortable. However, humidity levels below 50% can significantly increase energy consumption, while humidity levels above 60% can cause damage due to mold, mildew and condensation.

Pressure Control with VAV Diffusers

Posted by Price Industries on December 31, 2019 at 9:13 AM

Consider Various Pressure Control Methods in a VAV System

All diffusers become noisier with higher pressures at their inlet and this is true for VAV diffusers.  Pressure is often reduced by the use of a balancing damper or terminal unit, but VAV diffusers are unique as they have a built in VAV damper that can close down to a minimum flow.
