Basic knowledge of duct systems, methodologies, and terms.
Mechanical engineers and system designers in need of accurate duct system modeling capabilities.
Enter data in easy to follow tab formatted interface. The tabs include Main, Fan, Sections, VAV boxes, Diffusers, and Spreadsheet.
VariTrane Duct Designer calculates airflows, velocities, detailed pressure drops, and diversity and produces thirteen different reports. Nine reports show calculation results including Project Summary, Sections, Diffusers, VAV Boxes, Trane Acoustical and Selection Data, Run-out Analysis, and Fitting and Section Bill of Materials. Four reports are dedicated to entered values. The critical path is clearly marked for quick analysis.
Ability to optimize design by re-sizing non-critical paths and adjusting for thermal and leakage changes. Make detailed VAV selections with acoustical analysis directly in the program. Ability to make detailed fitting analyses. Model new or existing systems making large-scale changes quickly and easily through the spreadsheet editor.
