1. An air diffuser, comprising:

  • a mounting plate comprising an opening in a center portion of the mounting plate, wherein the air diffuser is configured to be fluidly coupled to ductwork via the opening, and wherein the mounting plate comprises recessed walls coupled to the center portion and extending away from the opening;

    a low flow adapter coupled to the mounting plate and disposed over the opening, wherein the low flow adapter comprises sloped faces and tubular extruded nozzles formed in and extending away from the sloped faces, wherein the tubular extruded nozzles are configured to increase a velocity and induction of air flow directed toward an interior space, and wherein the tubular extruded nozzles are disposed at an angle with respect to a horizontal plane defined by the center portion of the mounting plate; and

    a diffusion plate coupled to the mounting plate, such that the low flow adapter is positioned between the mounting plate and the diffusion plate, wherein each of the tubular extruded nozzles is angled toward a discharge outlet of the air diffuser between the mounting plate and the diffusion plate to direct the air flow toward the discharge outlet and to avoid obstruction of the air flow caused by the mounting plate and the diffusion plate.
