Product volume displacement factor is a function of the amount of total air space displaced by items stored in the room. Calculated automatically by algorithm. Typically from 0.25 to 0.75 depending upon room size (volume) and aspect ratios comparing internal length, width and height dimensions.

ACH is Air Changes per Hour

0.000335 is a constant

To is Ambient DB °C

Ti is Room Temperature DB °C


Product volume displacement factor may be overruled (factor 1.0) if desired, for purposes of calculating Freezer pull down gains in empty rooms for example, by application of a Special Features Code.
