Due to the bistro located in the neighbouring building, there were recurring odour problems in the Spengergasse student dormitory caused by the leaking exhaust air pipe that runs from the fume hood across the entrance area of the student dormitory. In order to reliably eliminate the odor nuisance, Aeroseal Austria GmbH was contracted to seal the spiro exhaust air line. For this purpose, the duct was disconnected from the fan on the first floor and connected to the sealing device. The deflector was sealed on the roof with a spiro cover. In addition, before sealing, it was ensured that all fire dampers were open and the inspection openings were closed. The sealing itself was carried out by injecting a finely atomized sealant, which was passed through the air duct system together with the air and sealed leaks from the inside. Within a short time, the amount of leakage was reduced in this way by 96.2% from 37.2 l/s to just 1.4 l/s. The result: no odor problems whatsoever. The result: no odor problems whatsoever and air tightness class D, which promises low operating costs thanks to enormously improved energy efficiency.
