Access utilizes differential pressure method for air volume (flow) calculation.

The manometer (digital pressure transmitter) is used to measure differential pressure (Δp) on the inlet ring of the fan.



The simplified formula to calculate flow is:



k - describes the characteristics of fan’s impeller. It is usually provided on the informational sticker on the fan or in catalog data.

Default value in Access is [100] - must be replaced with the correct value.

x - defines root factor. Default is 0.5 - meaning square root. Normally it shouldn’t be changed.
