For tests conducted on corrugated ducts and conventional spiral ducts the pressure loss was measured using the static pressure ports of Pitot-static tubes mounted at the duct center-line at axial locations as prescribed by ASHRAE Standard 120.
Because of concerns about the disparity in the fabric duct/steel duct diameter at the terminal connections, it was suggested that additional pressure loss tests be performed on fabric ducts using Pitot-static tubes mounted at the duct centerline, at axial locations prescribed by ASHRAE Standard 120.
Like-wise, the static pressure upstream and downstream of the test section and the pressure loss indicated by the Pitot-static tubes was measured by means of electronic manometers having a readability of + or -0.
