Chilled Beam Presentation Cooling Load Profile Chilled Beam Systems Advantages of Chilled Beam vs VAV Sample Project Photos Summary & Questions

4 Cooling Load Profile

5 Sensible Heat Heat which is measured by a thermometer. No Moisture added to the space. Latent Heat Heat which is measured by a humidistat. Moisture added to the space.

6 Sensible Heat

7 Sensible Heat

8 Latent Heat Sensible Heat

9 70% Sensible Heat and 30% Latent Heat
Air Infiltration Sensible Heat And Latent Heat Sensible Heat Latent Heat Sensible Heat Sensible Heat

10 Cooling Load Profile

11 Water = Efficient Transport
10” 1 Ton of Sensible Cooling (12,000 BTU/HR) Requires 550 CFM of Air or 2.4 GPM of water 12” ¾” diameter water pipe

12 Air Horse Power vs Water Horse Power

13 Chilled Ceilings (Radiant Chilled Ceilings)
Three Types of Chilled Beam Systems Chilled Ceilings (Radiant Chilled Ceilings) Passive Chilled Beams Active Chilled Beams

14 Chilled Ceilings

15 Chilled Ceilings Radiant Effect
76°F Dry Bulb 74°F radiant temperature (dry bulb)

16 Passive Chilled Beams

17 Passive Chilled Beams Operation Principle

18 Passive Chilled Beams Airflow Pattern

19 Active Chilled Beams

20 Active Chilled Beam Operation Principle
Primary Air From Energy Recovery Unit Primary air nozzles Primary air plenum 55 Deg F to 65 Deg F 100 CFM Induction air flow Suspended ceiling 200 CFM 200 CFM Heat exchanger Water Temp 52 Deg F 2 Deg F Above Dew Point Temp 72 Deg F 300 CFM

21 Active Chilled Beam Airflow Pattern

22 Active Chilled Beams Benefits
Very high cooling capacity Up to 100 BTUH/FT2 floor space Up to 2000 BTUH per LF Integrated cooling, ventilation and heating All services in the ceiling cavity Suitable for integration into all ceiling types Reduces ceiling costs compared to Passive Beams

23 Active Chilled Beams Benefits (Continued)
Significant space savings Smaller ductwork saves space in shafts, mechanical rooms and ceilings Can be installed tight up against the slab Reduced floor to floor heights Reduced construction costs on new buildings Low noise levels Low maintenance No moving or consumable parts

24 Energy Savings* Compared to VAV

25 (Minimum 40 points needed for certification out of 100 maximum)
LEED Certification LEED NC V3.0 Optimize Energy Performance - up to 48% (new) or 44% (existing) more efficient than ASHRAE 90.1 (EA Credit 1) - up to 19 points Increased Ventilation - 30% more outdoor air than ASHRAE 62 (IEQ Credit 2) - 1 point Controllability of Systems - individual temperature control (IEQ Credit 6.2) point Thermal Comfort - meet ASHRAE 55 (IEQ Credit 7.1) point (Minimum 40 points needed for certification out of 100 maximum)

26 Passive Chilled Beams Variants
Recessed Passive Beams Exposed Passive Beams

29 Active Chilled Beam Design Considerations

30 Building Suitability Building Characteristics that favor Active Chilled Beams Zones with moderate-high sensible load densities Where primary airflows would be significantly higher than needed for ventilation Buildings most affected by space constraints Hi – rises, existing buildings with induction systems Zones where the acoustical environment is a key design criterion Laboratories where sensible loads are driving airflows as opposed to air change rates Buildings seeking LEED or Green Globes certification

31 Building Suitability Characteristics that less favor Active Chilled Beams Buildings with operable windows or “leaky” construction Beams with drain pans could be considered Zones with relatively low sensible load densities Zones with relatively low sensible heat ratios and low ventilation air requirements Zones with high filtration requirements for the re-circulated room air Zone with high latent loads

32 Construction Costs Reduced height
Floor heights reduced 10”-14” Overall height reduced by 6’

33 HVAC Advantages Savings Compared to VAV
Smaller AHU’s Smaller Ductwork Less Noise Low Maintenance Lower Electrical Infrastructure Cost Less Fan HP Lower Operating Cost
