General Description

With the Computer Controlled Air Duct Systems Unit, "TSCAC", the user will study the air distribution under different configurations thanks to the supports included with the unit. The user himself will assemble the air ducts using usual elements such as pipes, bends, branches, filters, diffusers and discharge valves.

The Computer Controlled Air Duct Systems Unit, "TSCAC", designed by EDIBON, consists of a set of metal ventilation ducts of different diameter, which allow for composing different ventilation networks to distribute air thanks to a series of movable and adjustable supports with the objective of understanding and handling the most important aspects related to them.

The user can build the ventilation system using usual components, such as tubes, bends, branches, filters, discharge valves, etc. After making the assembly, the effect of individual components on the pressure drop and, therefore, on the flowing air velocity and flow will be studied. Thanks to the arrangement of six pressure sensors, the volumetric flow of air in each line of the system can be determined in real time.

The duct system is supplied by a computer controlled variable flow fan, whose absorbed power will be required to determine its characteristic curve, as well as the operation point of the whole system.

The path followed by the air along the different elements included in the system will be chosen by using butterfly valves, diaphragm valves and distribution elements. The air, when flowing through the elements mentioned, will suffer pressure drops that will be quantified due to the arrangement of several exchangeable connections, where the static and total pressure can be measured thanks to the location of Pitot tubes in every connection.

There is a quick connection portable differential "U" manometer to determine those pressures. It allows for knowing the differential pressure between whatever points of the system. Besides, there is a portable anemometer to measure velocities and flows at the outlet of the ducts.

This Computer Controlled Unit is supplied with the EDIBON Computer Control System (SCADA), and includes: The unit itself + a Control Interface Box + a Data Acquisition Board + Computer Control, Data Acquisition and Data Management Software Packages, for controlling the process and all parameters involved in the process.
