Mist Collection Duct Flow Calcuation Software

Mist Collection Duct Flow Calcuation Software

Mist Collection Duct Flow Calcuation Software

Looking for a low cost (or free) software package to use for simulating the air flow through multiple central mist collection systems. Our systems main trunks start out at Ø24 or Ø26 and tapers down the farther away it gets. Off the main trunk are Ø10, Ø8, Ø6, and Ø4 taps that make no sense over years of reconfiguration. There are between 10 and 14 taps depending on the system. I want to figure out what it would take to balance this system correctly or replace it with a plenum main trunk. The software would have to help me simulate different designs.

I doubt you will find a free program that works. Trane and Carrier have programs, but cost hundreds of $. You might find one with a search engine. Please report back if you do.

Do it long end; start from the furthest end of the lateral connection to the trunk line using the pressure drop calculations. As you develop your equations working backwards, toward the air handling unit, you will sense that their is pattern which then you can write your own spread sheet.

There is a product called Heavent: Industrial Exhaust Ventilation Design Software by Stephen Guffey. It is sold online at the ACGIH Product Store for $495. Go to www.acgih.org/store and do a search on Heavent
