VAV Diffusers in High Performance Air Systems

Posted by Price Industries on August 11, 2020 at 12:04 PM

Creating Comfort, Efficiency and Sustainability with VAV Diffusers

High performance air systems demand modern design approaches with leading-edge
products and technology in order to optimize comfort and reduce energy consumption. A
comfortable environment is achieved by providing the smallest possible zones of temperature
control, allowing for individual temperature distribution and better air movement. Reduction
in energy is realized by designing a low-pressure HVAC system that allows for maximum
turn-down while maintaining temperatures.

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.

What is System Effect?

Posted by Price Industries on September 10, 2019 at 9:47 AM
In duct design and installation, system effect is the generation of higher than expected pressure drops through changes in duct direction or geometry. It can also be caused by improper installation of  fittings, which result in excessive, unanticipated turbulence in the airflow. In short, system effect is the installed pressure drop which is different from the design pressure drop.
