What is Static Regain?

January 31, 2012  |   FAQ's   |     |   2,079 Comments

This design methodology sizes the supply duct system to obtain uniform static pressure at all branches and outlets. Much more complex than equal friction, static regain can be used to design systems of any pressure or velocity. Duct velocities are systematically reduced over the length of the distribution layout, which allows the velocity pressure to convert to static pressure, offseting friction losses in the succeeding section of duct. Systems designed using static regain require little or no balancing.
