An Inside Look at Price’s Product Development Process

Price has been manufacturing products to improve indoor air quality for decades, but the COVID-19 pandemic compelled us to develop new solutions to specifically target airborne particles. With the US government’s recent commitment to educate everyone about the importance of clean indoor air and its Clean Air in Buildings Challenge, we anticipate that the increased focus on air quality is not a trend – it is the new normal.

How CFD Optimized Cooling in a Battery Energy Storage System

One of the most frequent questions that customer and reps ask us is “Can you model this?” Even though the answer is always a resounding yes – we love a challenge – every rep and customer is still
surprised at the broad array of applications that benefit from a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis. This means that a myriad of designs currently in use in different sectors of the building industry could have been improved.

Using Computational Fluid Dynamics to Optimize HVAC Design

Posted by Price Industries on June 16, 2020 at 10:01 AM

Leverage the power of simulation on your next building design

High demands are placed on modern HVAC systems to create optimal indoor environments while minimizing energy usage. Consequently, usage of computer-based analysis tools like computational fluid dynamics (CFD) that aid in the design of these systems is becoming more prevalent. With the recent addendum to ASHRAE 62.1 we expect the demand for CFD analyses to increase even further. The change states that a CFD analysis can be used to estimate the ventilation effectiveness value used to determine the outdoor air requirement instead of tables provided in the standard.
