Energy Impacts of Chilled-Water-Piping Configuration

Energy Impacts of Chilled-Water-Piping Configuration

Examining the energy-saving potential of three commonly used arrangements

As the cost of energy continues to rise, it behooves chiller-plant owners and designers to consider the energy impacts of virtually everything under their control, including chilled-water piping.

This article will discuss the energy consumption of the three basic configurations of chilled-water piping currently in use: constant primary flow (CPF), constant primary flow/variable secondary flow (P/S), and variable primary flow (VPF). Also, it will discuss the attributes of equipment-r
