Calculation of the pressure drop
To do this, we calculate the pressure drop from a diagram and a formula. This calculation will help us determine the shortest and least hilly path to install the conduits. Here, the objective is to define the most suitable circuit to reduce energy and pressure losses.
This depreciation is unavoidable when the air flow passes through elbows, connections and junctions in the circuit. On the other hand, this calculation makes it possible to determine the good aeraulic diagram to limit the losses of load.
The calculation of pressure drop (ΔP) takes into account:
- the length L of the conduit (expressed in m)
- the density ρ of the air (expressed in kg/m3)
- the internal diameter D of the conduit (expressed in m)
- the average air speed V (expressed in m/s)
Once the dimensions have been obtained, the technical team will be able to draw the detailed plan of the aeraulic network by explaining the different passages of the ducts.
MyDATEC also defines the composition of the network and the positioning of each element.
In addition, the optimization of the circuit must also be done in such a way as to minimize the space requirement. For this, we also study the possibilities of installation in the attic.
