Low Temperature Air Distribution

Posted by Price Industries on August 13, 2019 at 8:59 AM

Low temperature overhead air distribution (also called cold air distribution) supplies cooling air to the occupied space with an entering air temperature typically between 40°F and 50°F [4.4 and 10°C]. This contrasts to the “typical or conventional” overhead air distribution cooling supply air temperature between 50°F and 59°F [10 and 15°C].

ACTIVE CHILLED BEAMS

In a chilled beam, the term “induction” is used to describe the process of injecting primary air under pressure through a nozzle, which in turn entrains return or plenum air at the discharge of the nozzle.

Creating Lasting Impressions with Customer Mock-ups

Posted by Price Industries on July 2, 2019 at 9:26 AM
 
In the HVAC design world, there is some uncertainty about the application of new and existing air distribution technologies since codes change so quickly and sometimes drastically. Customer mock-ups of the proposed HVAC design for a specific space are a great way to help resolve design uncertainty.
