Time: 5:00 – 6:00 PM EST

Location: Masonic Temple (500 Temple Ave, Detroit, MI, 48201)

Meeting Topic: Duct & System Leakage

SMACNA as the industry leader has a long history of research regarding the fabrication, installation and testing of ductwork. Research by SMACNA on the heels of European countries proved the approach using the surface area of the duct and the pressure in the duct as the basic parameters. This research later confirmed by other (including ASHRAE) clearly illustrates the leakage class is the superior method for assigning duct leakage versus the arbitrary percentage method. This methodology is the current method used SMACNA, Model Building Codes & ASHRAE Standard 90.1.

The SMACNA HVAC Air Duct Leakage Manual 2nd edition (ANSI) and the new SMACNA HVAC System Air leakage Test Standard 1st edition will be presented to address the proper means and methods to define specifications, but also the allowable leakage rates for both duct and equipment in the field.
