You may experience issues viewing this site in Internet Explorer 9, 10 or Once this is appreciated, the appeal and advantage of using a fully tested and certified matched smoke vent fan and VSD solution should then be recognised.
In houses and general buildings of environment where smoke control equipment is not installed, or its operation is difficult, there is a need to develop and utilize a portable smoke exhaust fan that can perform emergency ventilation in case of fire suppression and rescue operations. Document Status Indicators The Green document eb indicator indicates that the document is: Specification for powered smoke and heat exhaust ventilators No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance.
Our services include design advice, CFD modelling, installation and maintenance.
Specification for powered smoke and heat exhaust ventilators AMD Withdrawn. Click here to find out how to access this document. On the other hand, if the smoke exhaust fan operates after the fire source disappears, smoke is directly exhausted to the outside due to the operation of the smoke exhaust fan, and the smoke density within the space drops sharply in all opening height conditions, thereby getting close to zero.
You may find similar items within these categories by selecting from the choices below:. What remains to be seen is whether clients and specifiers appreciate that systems will become more costly due to the need for expensive VSD filters, oversized fan motors and increased power supplies and that plant space requirements needed to accommodate fans and control panels will need to be increased.
BS EN () and the use of VSDs for smoke control systems – SCS Group
The most practical option, from a system integration point of view, would be to use a fully tested and certified matched smoke vent fan and VSD solution, which fully complies with EN Smoke vent specialists should be approaching clients and specifiers to provide early warning of the impending cost increases resulting from the use of certain types of systems.
Your basket is empty. Using this approach would allow fan and VCD selection methods to remain un-changed, meaning that installers and system designers would then not be forced to accommodate larger motors, fans or additional control equipment into their design.

Inverter drives are commonly used in smoke control applications. Of the three options mentioned, this is the most readily applicable from a practical point of view. Again there may be 12110-3 recent versions of the document. Open Journal of Fluid Dynamics121011-3. For example, when using smoke extract to protect escape lobbies it is common to vary the speed of the fan according to the pressure in the lobby to prevent the lobby becoming depressurised which could make it difficult to open exit doors.
Pressure control systems relying on fan speed modulation are unable to comply with this condition. Find Similar Items This product falls into the following categories.
Customers who bought this product also bought BS EN Many manufacturers provide a fire mode option that disables the control functions and motor protection in an emergency and allows the motors to run to destruction if necessary; however, as there have been very few tests carried out under fire conditions there is a lack of certainty about their performance.
