Duct system pressure and SFP

The duct system pressure drop has a significant impact on the SFP. But what are the factors we need to focus on when reducing SFP? Lets take a closer look at that. Specific fan power, SFP, is the total electrical power of the fans in an air handling unit in kW divided by the supply air flow or the …

Why you should consider a 4-pipe system for cooling and heating

A traditional two-pipe system for heating and cooling may not be an optimal solution for buildings with mixed usage that combines, for instance, retails, offices and hotels. Besides, the southward side of the building facing the sun might require cooling at the same time that the northward side, in …
