AcoustaVent - Efficient Design

How does the AcoustaVent help with the Intake of air?

The AcoustaVent has been designed so that air can easily flow through the vents inlets and outlets. The intakes have carefully been designed and engineered with rounded corners which helps to reduce both the turbulence of the inlet airflow and the skin friction losses. This will then reduce the resistance to the flow which increases the efficiency of your system as more airflow is able to pass through.

The below graph shows the pressure drop at different airflows when the AcoustaVent is used as an inlet.

How does the AcoustaVent help with Soundproofing?

The outlet of the vent has been designed so that sound waves are not able to flow directly through the vent. The geometry means sound waves would have to reflect off of different surfaces to pass through the vent. The reflection of the sound waves will help to dissipate their energy and reduce the noise that is heard on the other side of the vent. Conventional vents do not have this sound proofing design and will therefore allow more sound waves to pass through them.

The soundproofing design also has another advantage. The AcoustaVent restricts any of the outside elements, such as rain or snow, being able to pass through the vent due to the geometry of its design. This makes it an advantageous choice if it is to be used outside. In addition to this it is manufactured from a weather resistant nylon plastic.

Can multiple AcoustaVents be used in Parallel?

Yes - it is possible to use multiple vents together. Using multiple vents will increase the amount of air that can pass through the inlets into your system. Therefore, for systems which require a larger airflow it is recommended to use multiple vents in parallel.
