A national leader in airflow codes, Washington has called for diffusers used in the state to use low air volumes. But there was a problem; no diffuser satisfied both the industry code requirements and the functional and aesthetic needs of engineers, architects and building owners. Titus fills that void with TJD, a standard OMNI diffuser designed specifically to address low air volume codes.
While most air outlets typically work at 100 CFMs, the patent pending TJD performs at 20 to 50 CFMs and throws air at 50-feet per minute up to nine feet from the diffuser. The high mixing increases the discharge isovel and its throw, providing uniform temperatures and equally distributed outside air throughout the space.
TJD also earned a score of 100 during ASHRAE’s low air volume Air Diffusion Performance Index (ADPI) testing, proving the product’s ability to satisfy functional and comfort requirements. That means engineers can both meet the latest codes and reduce air volume dependence, and building owners can achieve energy and operations savings while ensuring occupant comfort.
“Customers can get ahead by using a solution specifically designed to meet industry codes and achieve functional, aesthetic and comfort needs,” says Mark Costello, product manager of grilles, registers and diffusers, Titus.
Best suited in areas where low airflow codes are applicable, TJD is ideal for smaller spaces with low equipment and external loads. It is also suitable for occupied spaces, as TJD incorporates its architectural plaque diffuser.
TJD’s release comes on the heels of Titus’s 2017 AHR Innovation Award win in the ventilation category for its Helios diffuser, an ambient light-powered digital diffuser. For more information on TJD, Helios and other air management products from Titus, please visit the website.
