High Capacity Flush Face Diffuser
Price HCF Series diffusers are designed to produce a low velocity, multi-directional air pattern while maintaining the appearance of a conventional "flush face" perforated diffuser. The semi-cylindrical air pattern and low noise level of the HCF allow for selection at higher air volumes than conventional diffusers, making it suitable for medical facilities and kitchens. Its flush ceiling design makes it architecturally flexible, matching the appearance of standard perforated diffusers.
Due to the multi-directional nature of the air pattern produced by the HCF, the throw data is presented in terms of both vertical throw and spread. When applying HCF diffusers they should be selected so that both the spread and vertical throw values fall within the physical constraints of the space to avoid excess velocity at fume hoods, work stations or the occupied zone. If design air volumes result in spread and throw values which exceed requirements, the model FRFD should be considered.
