A Simple and Quick Chilled Water Loop Balancing for Variable Flow System
MetadataShow full item record
For many modem buildings, the chilled water loops and risers are equipped with variable speed pumping systems. How to quickly balance the loop or riser to satisfy the cooling requirement and reduce energy consumption is a very interesting topic today. In this paper, a method for simple and quick balancing of the chilled water risers for a large medical facility has been developed and implemented. Through water loop commissioning, the cold air temperature is maintained very well and the energy consumption for the pumping system is reduced by about 40%.
