Space required for commissioning and maintenance

Sufficient space must be kept clear near any attachments to allow for commissioning and maintenance. It may be necessary to provide sufficiently sized inspection access openings. Product illustrations do not show any installation situation details. If an attachment requires a certain installation orientation, this is specified on a sticker on the product.

Calculation conditions

  • The volume flow rate is calculated based on the measured effective pressure
  • The effective pressure is measured using an electronic manometer or an inclined tube manometer
  • Air density ρ = 1.2 kg/m3


Given data
  • VMRK/160
  • Δpw = 100 Pa (manometer reading of effective pressure)
  • Volume flow rate qv in m³/h


Device data
  • K value from table: K = 54 m3/h (15.1 l/s)


Installation and commissioning
  • The installation orientation of ELAB must be as shown on the sticker
  • The installation orientation of XTS and BTS is not critical


Upstream conditions
The volume flow rate accuracy Δqv applies to a straight upstream section of the duct. Bends, junctions or a narrowing or widening of the duct cause turbulence that may affect measurement. Duct connections, e.g. branches off the main duct, must comply with EN 1505. Some installation situations require straight duct sections upstream.
