Duct or AHU temperature. Cool air absorbs less than warm air and requires a longer absorption distance. When equal amounts of steam are introduced into equivalent ducts but with different air temperatures, the lower temperature systems of 50 °F to 55 °F are more difficult to ensure absorption than systems with higher temperatures.
