NC values are based on room absorption of 10dB, re watts. 5. Blanks [—] indicate an NC level below 6. The Radiaflo™ is a flush faced radial flow diffuser designed for critical spaces with stringent ventilation requirements. It features a non-aspirating, forced displacement, radial air distribution design. Air flows from the Radiaflo™ diffuser in a radial pattern, displacing large volumes of air out and away from the diffuser.

    5. Fans and Blowers Bureau of Energy Efficiency First method is to restrict the air flow by partially closing a damper in the system. This action causes a new system performance curve (SC2) where the required pressure is greater for any given air flow. The fan will now operate at "B" to provide the reduced air flow Q2 against higher pressure P2. Since axial detection can vary largely between diffuser models, it is, therefore, important to determine the detection behavior of a particular diffuser model before using the diffuser as a detector. As shown in Fig. 2, variability among individual diffusers with the same design is relatively by: 2.

    The Radial Flow Diffuser (RFD)’s patented construction is designed to handle large volumes of air with extremely short throws to minimize velocity in the occupied zone. Ideal for use in laboratories, the RFD is able to provide large volumes of make-up air, at low velocity, without adversely impacting containment at fume hoods. Ceiling diffuser with a radial air discharge pattern for high air flow / air change applications Rapid jet velocity decay - short throws Intrusive radial pattern baths critical areas in continuous supply of clean air and lowers the concentration of airborne particles / contaminants.

DESIGN PARAI'IETERS A first step in an experimental program is the identification of the parameters affecting the design. For an axial-to-radial dif- fuser these choices are: shape, centerbody, turning vanes, entering wakes, turbulence, swirl, inlet boundary layer, radius ratio, and similarity.

First, there is the geometry of the walls. Determination of flow in an axial-to-radial diffuser with swirl. By Robert Allen Major.

Experimental test rig and methodology Experimental test rig is shown in fig. The same test rig was used for the turbulent swirl flow researches in all three conical Size: KB. structure shows that swirling flow is induced in the diffuser.

This swirling flow leads to acceptable air mixing between the core flow and the near diffuser wall regions. The numerical results indicated that swirling flow induced by swirl number enhanced the velocity distribution better than the other tested swirl numbers. This results consequently in large variations of the diffuser performance.

A major role in the coupled system of turbine and diffuser can be attributed to the tip leakage flow. While it is desirable to minimize the tip leakage with regard to the turbine, a higher leakage mass flow can often be beneficial for the diffuser : Marius Mihailowitsch, Markus Schatz, Damian M.

Vogt. Investigation of Swirling Flow in Diffusers Installed at the Exit of an Axial-flow Pump 3. Numerical research The results presented below are obtained using the calculated technique described with more detail in [6].

This technique is essentially similar to the single-sweep scheme described in [7]. The flow in the draft tube was simulated using the CFX-TASCFLOW The inlet profile is specified using a cubic spline. A linear interpolation is applied to the circumference.

The radial component is imposed as the analytical formulation for a conical diffuser (Eq.). The inclination of the velocity vector in the radial direction is, therefore, determined by the geometry of the Cited by: Neve RS, Wirasinghe NE () Changes in conical diffuser performance by swirl addition.

Some aspects of swirl flow have been investigated in [], but definite answers of. to find the volume of the air through the diffuser. Knowing the velocity from test and the effective area (Ak factor table) of the diffuser, the CFM of air from the diffuser can be calculated.

Assessment of diffuser inlet conditions, and off-design performance analysis, reveals that the investigated diffuser designs are performance robust to high swirl, high inlet blockage, and highly nonuniform mass flux distribution.

In order to study swirling, confined, turbulent and non cavitating flow in conical diffusers, a series of 2D LDV and pitot measurements are described. A tangential entry swirl flow inducer was used to generate the swirl flow, LDV was used for the measurements of velocity distribution, and a three hole pitot tube was used for the pressure Author: Ole Gunnar Dahlhaug.

Passage wake was no longer discernible, although boundary layer on shroud surface remained thicker than that on hub. Axial velocity from hub to shroud is evidence of continuing levelling in two boundary layer flow by: 1.Ornel axial-flow pump for improv, performanceing its by reducing the fluid swirl which is still present in the flow as it exits from the standard pump-unit that was originally fitted with a conventional stator followed by conical diffuser.

This residual swirl would eventually dissipate as lost energy and hence reducing pump efficiency.
