7.1.1

Check that all automatic controls are fully commissioned and operating
properly.
7.1.2 All pre-commissioning checks have been carried out.
7.1.3 Select the specified speed of the packaged unit supply air fan.
7.1.4 Set all the dampers in the grill outlet at full open position.
7.1.5 Take initial total flow of the unit by adding up all the measured volume for
each outlets.(Initial scan)
7.1.6 Compare the reading against the designed flow. Find out the percentage
of design flow.
7.1.7 Find out the index outlet. (I.e. which has the very low percentage of flow
proportionally by using the flow hood (balometer).
7.1.8 Keep the index outlet damper fully open.(i.e. opposed blade damper of
grill)
7.1.9 Then throttle the air volume at each outlet to get the design percentage of
flow proportionally by using the flow hood (balometer).
7.1.10 Each time when you throttle the outlet by closing the diffuser / grill
damper, the index outlet air flow raises gradually. Measure the index point
each time.
7.1.11 By the time the last outlet is completed, air volume at all outlets including
the index is proportionally balanced.
7.1.12 Note all the readings at all outlets and keep records.
7.2 AIR BALANCING OF AIR TERMINALS
Depending upon locations and access to air terminals, various types of airflow
measuring instruments will be utilized to record the actual air flow at terminals. Assuming
adequate access provided, a direct reading balometer would be used which gives a
direct reading of volume rather than velocity, which cancels out the need for effective
grille areas, terminal configuration consideration and velocity corrections.
If the access is restricted then a rotating vane anemometer shall be used and the
velocity reading obtained would be converted to volume (Velocity x free area = Volume)
and a comparison between the pilot traverse reading will be made to obtain a correction
factor which would be incorporated to give a true velocity reading. Alternatively, the
effective area provided by the register / grille manufacturer will be incorporated in the
design velocity calculations.
7.2.1
7.2.2

7.2.3

Air quantities shall be measured according to Project Specification &


Standards.
Any main branch may be chosen to start with but as normal practice and
having carried out a rough balance of main and sub-branches, start with
the most remote branch and then sub-branch.
Locate the terminal, which is discharging the lowest percentage of its
design flow rate. This is generally the last terminal in the run. If not,
adjusting the damper in the last terminal unit until it is working with the
same percentage as the lowest one previously measured.

Measure the flow from the terminal next to the index and workout the
percentage flow as close as possible to that of the index. Fix the damper
in position.
Repeat the procedure for the next terminal, again comparing it with the
index.
As the dampers are closed along the run, more air will be driven towards
the downstream terminals and the volume of air discharged at the
terminal index will rise. This does not affect the balancing procedure since
each terminal being adjusted is related in turn with the index.
When all the terminals have been balanced on a sub-branch, each
terminal will be running with an equal percentage of the design flow rate,
with the allowable tolerances.
The flow rates at each terminal must be measured and recorded. Once
again a summation is made to check that the total is in reasonable
agreement with the measured sub-branch flow.
Test results shall be recorded in the approved test sheets and
documents.

Ensure that those engaged in conducting inspections are qualified and


have been adequately trained in inspection techniques and in the design
and construction aspects of the HVAC systems.
Verify that any significant design and field changes from approved
drawings are adequately controlled and processed commensurate with
the original design.
Determine the effectiveness of the document review systems by
comparing records against requirements for accuracy and completeness
Incoming material Inspection against the approved MAR for dimensional
and physical damages.
Verify that the approved procedures and instructions are appropriate and
adequate for proper installation and inspection of the HVAC systems
As per approved ITP shall be followed for the stage wise inspection.
Ensure the availability of IFC status drawing with fabrication team.
Ensure the construction method as per the approved procedure.
Availability and aware about the duct testing procedure and acceptable
criteria against the applicable codes.
Ensure safety-related/non safety-related boundaries and equipment is
clearly defined and delineated.

HSE

All site safety rules & regulations shall be complied with Project
Specifications.
Every personnel will go through a ADCO approved Pre employment
