Some major tasks in the design process are to decide on the location of the components, select the pipe size, select the pump, and choose the size of the expansion tank. Two basic piping arrangements are the direct-return and the reversed-return plans (Fig. 7-11).

However, if a building does not have mechanical ventilation, or if the fans in the system are not operating, infiltration will occur. The volumetric flow rate of infiltration air is rather difficult to determine with any measure of precision. It will vary with the quality of construction, wind speed and direction, indoor-outdoor temperature difference, and internal pressure in the building. One procedure that is often used in load calculations is to estimate the infiltration in...

The pressure drop of liquid flowing through the shell across tube bundles is also difficult to predict analytically, but when an experimental point is available for one flow rate, predictions of the pressure drop at other flow rates can be made quite accurately.

## Condensers And Evaporators

12-1 Condensers and evaporators as heat exchangers Since both the condenser and evaporator are heat exchangers, they have certain features in common. One classification of condensers and evaporators (Table 12-1) is according to whether the refrigerant is on the inside or outside of the tubes and whether the fluid cooling the condenser or being refrigerated is a gas or a liquid. The gas referred to in Table 12-1 is usually air, and the liquid is usually water, but other substances are used as...

Doing so means that all the heat can be received at one temperature level and rejected at another. If a...

There are certain applications and occasions where the heat pump can simultaneously perform useful cooling and useful heat...

8-1 Types of cooling and dehumidifying coils One of the frequent assignments of a refrigeration or air-conditioning system is to reduce the temperature of an airstream. A natural concomittant of dropping the temperature of the air is removing moisture from it.

In a comfort or industrial...
