By Herbert W. Stanford III

HVAC Water Chillers and Cooling Towers: basics, software, and Operation, moment Edition explores the most important advancements lately to many chiller and cooling tower parts that experience led to superior functionality and reduce working expenses. This new version seems to be at how weather swap and "green" designs have considerably impacted the choice of refrigerants and the appliance of chilled water platforms. It additionally discusses the increased use of electronic controls and variable frequency drives in addition to the re-introduction of a few older applied sciences, specially ammonia-based absorption cooling.



The first half the publication makes a speciality of water chillers and the second one part addresses cooling towers. In either sections, the writer contains the subsequent material:




  1. Fundamentals—basic information regarding structures and gear, together with how they and their quite a few elements paintings

  2. Design and Application—equipment sizing, choice, and alertness; info of piping, keep watch over, and water therapy; and designated issues corresponding to noise keep an eye on, electric provider, hearth security, and effort potency

  3. Operations and Maintenance—commissioning and programmed upkeep of parts and structures, with instructions and advised requisites for procurement



This updated booklet presents HVAC designers, development proprietors, working and upkeep employees, architects, and mechanical contractors with definitive and functional information at the software, layout, buy, operation, and upkeep of water chillers and cooling towers. It bargains beneficial info that you should use each day, together with checklists and troubleshooting guidelines.
