  • Page 52: Appendix B Ducts And Hvac Recommendation

    Ducts and HVAC recommendation Energy balance Air conditioning in the work area should take into account that the equipment produces heat. The temperature of the air coming out of the printer may be up to 90°C (194°F) at the lamp exhaust duct, at sea level. Typically, the printer's power dissipation without local exhaust is in the range of 4–6 kW (13.6–20.5 kBTU/h).
  • Page 53: Small Room Layout Example

    You should provide a minimum of 6 ACH (air changes per hour) of fresh air ventilation and a minimum room ● volume of 35 m³ (1236 ft³). HP recommends 10 ACH for optimum operator comfort mainly if the room is smaller than 35 m³ (1236 ft³).
  • Page 54 Lamp duct recommendation In order for the printer to function correctly, the lamp exhaust duct should create no more than 125 Pascals of back-pressure at 3680 liters per minute (0.5 inches of water at 130 ft³/min) of air flow. In order to achieve this with a passive exhaust duct: A duct of at least 10 cm (4 in) is required ●...
  • Page 55: Option 2: No Direct Connection From The Lamp

    If the above recommendations cannot be met, a powered exhaust duct may be used: Powered exhaust systems should provide 3680 liters per minute (130 ft³/min) of flow. ● Powered lamp exhaust ducts connected to the lamp outlet must provide an air gap of at least 10 cm (4 in) ●...
