The airtightness of the ventilation ducts installed is an important requirement for the functionality and efficiency of ventilation systems. Leakages in the ductwork impede the targeted distribution of air in the building. Consequently, the high level of air quality planned is not achieved. Leaky ventilation ducts impair the efficiency of ventilation systems, in particular of those with heat recovery.
The measuring principle
The ventilation systems are tested by ventilation strands. When testing the supply air ducts, the MLM is, for example, connected to the supply air valve. All other valves and the supply air duct at the central unit are closed with rubber bladders. Using the Minneapolis DuctBlaster fan and the pressure gauge DG-700 (included in the BlowerDoor Mini- Fan Measuring System) negative (testing exhaust air ducts) or positive (testing supply air ducts) pressure is created. The measuring results are documented in the test report.
