"Don, My concern is one of liability.  Even with sealed combustion devices the manufacturers (for example) of gas fireplaces have in the "fine print" warnings for potential back drafting with CYA clauses and advisement for MUA...no one…"

"Hi Chris, Today there is no research that I can find to support less than 500 fpm. As I noted above we have much high velocity systems without noise issue due to locating the fan away from the hood, minimizing fittings and using silencers. What I am…"

Robert Bean replied to Robert Bean's discussion Low velocity consequences in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"Hi Tom, All good comments and questions that need to be explored for residential systems. We have large residential system (1200 cfm) designed for 800 to 1000 fpm with single inline fan located 30 to 40 feet away from the range hood...two silencers…"

Chris Stratton replied to Robert Bean's discussion Low velocity consequences in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"Seems like high velocity and low noise are at odds with each other. And one of the biggest impediments to people using range hoods in their homes is noise. Wouldn't requiring higher velocity exacerbate this problem? Sorry forgive my ignorance…"

Tom Phillips replied to Robert Bean's discussion Low velocity consequences in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"Bob: Good questions. I will defer to HVAC & grease experts on this. Is the main safety issue grease fires in the exhaust duct & hood? If so, do residential hoods & stoves get hot enough to be a problem, or is it just for…"

Robert Bean replied to Robert Bean's discussion Low velocity consequences in the group Kitchen Ventilation
"Interestingly the 500 fpm was a drastic reduction from a previous requirement of 1500 fpm established by NFPA following an ASHRAE research project which looked at the impact of velocity on grease deposits ...100 cfm in an 8" duct is less than…"

Low velocity consequences

Has anyone looked at the low velocity consequences as a result of marrying these statements pulled from the resource documents…“Use 8-inch round smooth metal ducts” and “ASHRAE and other groups recommend a minimum of 100 cfm.” and “HVI recommends 100-250 cfm airflow rate”?Just saying if authoritative voices are offering up resources there is a need to address minimum recommended velocities and cross check recommended duct sizes with recommended air flow rates.Not sure if the residential…See More

Good Day,

How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very vital to disclose to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on ( mr.jamespollard01@gmail.com ) for the full details.
Have a nice day
Thanks God bless.
