Model ACD series Ceiling diffusers are constructed from highly corrosion resistant extruded aluminium. Designed with welded butt joints and corner inserts, it will be able to withstand rough handling during installation. The diffuser is enamel coated and oven-baked for scratch resistant.
ACD diffuser Is a very popular choice for many cooling, heating and ventilating application, and it is designed to handle large volumes of air with good throw patterns, lower pressure drops and sound levels. The excellent performance is complimented by a pleasing appearance that harmonizes with various architectural details.
- AIR GRILLES ceiling diffusers are suitable for mounting on virtually all types of ceilings.
- Available in various sizes and core patterns to suit every architectural requirement.
- Centre core easily removable from diffuser face for maintenance.
- Corners of frame are reinforced with corner inserts and argon welded to maintain hairline mitre-joints and ensure rigid handling.
- Available in one, two, three or four way throw.
- Opposed blade volume control damper can be adjusted from face of diffuser with a screw driver.
- Diffusers can be supplied in square or rectangular profiles (refer to Core Styles in page 5).
- Square to round adaptor can be supplied to permit attachment of round duel to a square neck diffuser.
- All Diffusers are enamel coated and oven baked for scratch resistant.
- Units of grilles have been tested at an independent N.A.T.A. accredited test laboratory in Australia.
SELECTION OF DIFFUSERS
AIR QUANTITY AND NOISE REQUIREMENTS
The total volume of air (ℓ/s) transmitted into a given area to be conditioned is a function of the overall system design (i.e. Total ℓ/s = Number of outlets x ℓ/s per outlet.
The permissible Noise Level of the conditioned area is directly related to the intended use of conditioned area (Please refer to the table on Recommended Sound Levels in page 6).
AIR DISTRIBUTION PATTERN
Given the shape or the space to be conditioned, the pattern requirement is determined by the number or outlets in it and the incidence or any exposed beams or light fittings below the ceiling line that may affect the dispersement of air. For example, for a two-way corner blow pattern. Models ACD-26, ACD-2C or ACD-2D may be ideally situated in the corner of a room whilst in corridors. a two way opposite blow pattern, Models ACD-2, ACD-2A or ACD-2E may be use. For larger areas, the division of the total area being conditioned into a series of overlapping space modules, usually square or rectangular, into which Model ACD-4 or ACD-4A diffusers are installed is most common.
The required throw is usually the distance from the nearest enclosing wall or partition or to the point of intersection with the airstream of an adjacent outlet. For high ceiling areas, the throw requirement may be specified as the horizontal distance described above plus the vertical distance from the outlet to the occupied zone. This vertical distance Is commonly measured to extend to the 1500mm level in the room. Generally, the specified throw should not exceed 1.5 times the diffuser mounting height.
Model ACD diffuser is ideally suited for Variable Air Volume (VAV) applications. The 360° radial horizontal air flow pattern promotes rapid mixing, temperature equalization and velocity reduction. The diffuser provides a consistent and stable air pattern as the air volume is reduced.
For ceiling applications, neck velocities as low as 75FPM on reduced air volume results in stable, horizontal air distribution without dumping. On exposed duct VAV applications, stable horizontal air distribution is maintained without dumping down to 20% of the maximum air volume.
DAMPER BALANCING NOISE
For convenience, an opposed blade damper can be fitted In the square to round adaptor to allow balancing through the face of the diffuser. 6ut this is only recommended when minor adjustments are necessary. Extensive throttling should always be caJTied out in the distribution ductwork.
