Smoke and heat control systems. Specification for powered smoke and heat control ventilators fans. The use gs inverters in emergency conditions has long been a topic of conversation within the industry.
Again there may be more recent versions of the document. With so many pressure control systems currently being specified or at design stage, the industry requires immediate clarity from the approving authority to advise how they intend to enforce the new rules.
Pressure control systems relying on fan speed modulation are unable to comply with 12101- condition.
BS EN 12101-3:2015
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. Specification for powered smoke and heat exhaust ventilators No longer current but cited in Building Regulations guidance. VSDs also provide useful soft-start functionality to reduce large fan start-up currents reducing stress on essential power supply networks and generators.

Want access to British Standards? Bypass Bypass systems can be used to run fans DOL only for systems in which fans always run at full speed e. Open Journal of Fluid DynamicsVol. This combination is certified under BS EN The system has a bypass facility to switch from inverter control to DOL during smoke control mode.
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.
As a part of the development process for portable smoke exhaust fans, a numerical analysis model of the portable smoke exhaust fan was derived from the building in which a fire occurred, and an analysis on the smoke and toxic gas exhaust effects was performed in this study. 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.

The faster, easier way to work with standards. Take the smart route to manage medical device compliance.
bz 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 Specification for powered smoke and 121013 control ventilators Fans Status: Learn more about the cookies we use and how to change your settings.
Their committees work with the manufacturing and service industries, government, businesses and consumers to facilitate the production of British, European and International standards.
Worldwide Standards We can source any standard from anywhere in the world. The effect of these changes on some common smoke ventilation systems are summarised in the following table:.
Scientific Research An Academic Publisher. For example, 121013- 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.
