Several years ago Raytheon Polar Services Company wanted to standardize the “Air Balance Procedure” for their facilities in the South Pole and they came up with a very simple procedure. Basically it broke out the procedure into two steps. Pre-Air balance and Air Balance.
In the Pre air balance section it listed items in two categories; Equipment check, and System Check. Both of these are very simple to develop.
In the Air Balancing section it has a step by step procedure for “Air Handling Equipment Balance” and “System Balancing”.
I really enjoyed this simple concise document. If you would like to read it in it’s entirety go to : http://www.nsf.gov/about/contracting/rfqs/support_ant/docs/facility_manuals/palmer_mcm_and_southpole/hvacairbalencingsop-711.pdf
