Yes, it calculates the Friction Loss and its also a converter from Square duct to Flex duct. Some also have formulas and other stuff on the back of them. Pretty useful.

(10 yrs ago) even then, i drew what the engineer wanted, and what the spec book showed. i wish i had a resource to study from that could help. they told me i couldn't bring a calculator or a ductulator. i have a hard time believing that all the mechanics here in canada know all the stuff this test seems to expect me to know.
I'm currently in my Intermediate term at George Brown. If you would like some help I'm more than willing.
I also have all my Basic and Intermediate notes on my computer.

Way to go tinmetal and Apprentice!
That's what we're here for.
To help each other.

sheetmental: At the test, they supply you with a calculator. Also, the formulas you need are on the test.

That sounds like a plan; Also My teacher at School in Toronto had a hand in creating one of the 5 tests. He gives us direction on what to study, but will not give us the acual questions.

That sounds like a great idea, but there would have to be two diffrent sections. One section for Canada and One Section for the USA.

heres a couple of questions from the exam...

1.what is the included angle of a drill bit when drilling stainless steel?

2. (and i can not find the answer to this one in any of my text books or notes from school, or on the internet) if repto lacing a broken belt on a 5 belt motor/fan assembly do you replace
a)all of the belts
b)just the broken belt
c)the broken belt and one adjecent belt
d)the broken belt and both adjacent belts

3. calculate the wedge to cut out of a circle to form the top of a china cap.

4.(another one i havent ever seen anywhere before) what do you use to cut 60" pvc?
and the answers given and im not 100% sure on these are
a)angle grinder
b)hand saw
c)cicular saw
d)cant remember

5.(yet another i havent seen before in any of my textbooks) is the tightening sequence of a 12 bolt flange

6. your given a blueprint and asked how many VAV boxes are required for the job which was easy but then the ask you series of questions on trouble shooting different air problems with the blueprint and what the possible causes could be which i found very difficult.

It would be interesting to see what the answer is on the belts question...

Our practice is to replace all the belts as they stretch-out and by replacing the bad belt typically means you tighten them up as you might need to, causing the belts to slip. But then again, we have 1 to 4 belt systems we work on.

On the Air problems, do they get into temp complaints? Damper positions regarding system more so then the vav itself or are the questions only on the vav's?
