MATERIALS A. Ducts: Galvanized steel lock forming quality, having zinc coating of 382 g/square meter for each side. Fasteners: Use rivets and bolts throughout; sheet metal screws accepted on low pressure ducts. Sealant: Water resistant, fire resistive, compatible with mating materials. Flexible ducts: Corrugated aluminum or fabric supported by helically wound steel wire or flat steel strips. Flexible Fibrous Glass Ducts: Flexible duct wrapped with flexible fibrous glass insulation, enclosed by seamless aluminum pigmented plastic vapor barrier jacket,"k" value at 24C maximum 0.034 /m. C. All round ducts and matching fittings shall be fabricated and constructed as per SMACNA standards.

FABRICATION A. Size round ducts installed in place of rectangular ducts from ASHRAE table of equivalent rectangular and round ducts. No variation of duct configuration or sizes will be permitted except by written permission. Complete metal ducts within themselves with no single partition between ducts. Where width of duct exceeds 457mm, cross break for rigidity. Open corners are not acceptable. Lap metal ducts in direction of air flow. Hammer down edges and slips to leave smooth duct interior. Construct tees, bends, and elbows with radius of not less than 1-1/2 times width of duct on center line. Where not possible and where rectangular elbows used, provide air foil type turning vanes. Where acoustical lining is required, provide turning vanes of perforated metal type with fiberglass inside. Increase duct sizes gradually, not exceeding 15 (0.26 rad) divergence wherever possible. Maximum divergence upstream of equipment to be 30 (0.52 rad) and 45 (0.78 rad) convergence downstream. Rigidly construct metal ducts with joints mechanically tight, substantially airtight, braced and stiffened so as not to breathe, rattle, vibrate, or sag. Caulk duct joints and connections with sealant as ducts are being assembled. Provide easements where low pressure duct work conflicts with piping and structure. Where easements exceed 10% duct area, split into two ducts maintaining original duct area. Provide necessary baffling in mixed air plenums to ensure good mixed air temperature with variations of not more than plus or minus 15 C under operating conditions.

I.

Construct plenums of galvanized panels joined by standing seams on outside of casing riveted or bolted on approximately 300mm centers. Reinforce with steel angles and provide diagonal bracing. Tightly fit at apparatus and seal with sealant. Provide 76mm high reinforced concrete curb for plenum walls and floor mounted casings. At floor, rivet panels on 200mm centers to angles. Where floors are acoustically insulated, provide liner of 18 gage (1.20mm) galvanized expanded metal mesh, turned up 305mm at sides with sheet metal shields. Reinforce door frames with steel angles tied to horizontal and vertical plenum supporting angles. Install hinged access doors where shown, specified, or required for access to equipment for cleaning and inspection. Fabricate acoustic plenums of galvanized steel. Provide 16 gage (1.50mm) back facing and 22 gage (0.80mm) perforated front facing with 2.4mm diameter holes on 4mm centers. Construct panels 76mm thick packed with 72 kg/cubic meter minimum fibrous glass media, on inverted channels of 16 gage (1.50mm) or on 76mm reinforced concrete curb.

PART 3 EXECUTION 3.01 INSTALLATION A. Obtain manufacturer's inspection and acceptance of fabrication and installation of duct work at beginning of installation. Provide openings in duct work where required to accommodate thermometers and controllers. Provide pitot tube openings where required for testing of systems, complete with metal can with spring device or screw to ensure against air leakage. Where openings are provided in insulated duct work, install insulation material inside a metal ring. Clean duct system and force air at high velocity through duct to remove accumulated dust. To obtain sufficient air, clean half the system at a time. Protect equipment which may be harmed by excessive dirt with filters, or bypass during cleaning. Clean duct systems with high power vacuum machines. Protect equipment which may be harmed by excessive dirt with filters, or bypass during cleaning. Provide adequate access into duct work for cleaning purposes. Locate ducts with sufficient space around equipment to allow normal operating and maintenance activities. Set plenum doors 150mm to 300mm above floor. Arrange door swings so that fan static pressure holds door in closed position. Connect diffusers or troffer boots to low pressure ducts with 1.5 m maximum length of flexible duct. Hold in place with strap or clamp. At each point where ducts pass through partitions, seal joints around duct with non-combustible material. Splitter or volume dampers shall be provided where shown on the drawings and at all locations where branches are taken off by splitter or radius top connections in the main. Provide floor drains in fresh air sections with deep seal traps. Connect terminal units to low pressure ducts with 300 mm length of flexible duct. Hold in place with strap or clamp.
