A radial fan is a device that consists of an impeller driven by an electrical motor. The rotation of the impeller sets the air in motion and air is sucked in from the inlet on the side of the fan and blown out of the outlet of the fan.
Reciprocating compressors are often used in connection with cooling systems. A reciprocating compressor draws in coolant fumes in portions, while other compressor types draw continually.
The task of the refrigerant is to transfer energy from one level and dispose of it at a higher level. There are many different types of primary refrigerants, each with technical substance characteristics, such as pressure, temperature, heat content, specific volume, and entropy for every need.
Refrigerant charge is a term used for the type and mass of refrigerant a refrigeration plant will hold to perform under the given conditions. The type of refrigerant must be applicable for the application and the ambient conditions. For example, the ASHRAE standards are general recommendations regarding local ambient conditions for inside and outside temperatures in both summer and winter in any country.
Relative air humidity is a term used to describe the amount of water vapour in the air. Relative air humidity is the ratio of the water vapour’s partial pressure to the saturated vapour pressure at a given temperature. Relative air humidity is expressed as a percentage.
Roof tank systems
Roof tanks are fresh water tanks, placed atop high-rise buildings. Roof tank installations are used in water supply applications mainly due to unstable water mains and unstable power supply.
The saturation point is the point at which air is unable to absorb more water. Saturation point can also be referred to as dew point. It can also be stated that a saturated liquid, such as water or a saturated vapour, contains the maximum amount of heat energy without boiling or condensing.
Coolant can be divided into primary coolant and secondary coolant. A secondary coolant is generally non-toxic in small amounts, though larger amounts must be disposed of appropriately.
Sensible cooling load
Sensible cooling load is a measurement of the amount of energy that must be removed from, for example, the air inside a building, in order to maintain a certain temperature, regardless of the temperature outside. Cooling load must be taken into account, when calculating the capacity of a cooling system.
