Testing & Balancing HVAC Air & Water Systems
Reference for HVAC applications
Thoroughly updated and revised, this book will provide the reader with an understanding of the principles and practices of testing and balancing (TAB) heating, ventilating and air conditioning air and water systems. For both the novice and the experienced testing and balancing technician, it is a field reference book of procedures, equations and information tables. The initial section details general and specific balancing procedures for constant air volume systems, variable air volume systems, return air systems, and fans and fan performance. The author then goes on to cover fume hood systems and cleanrooms TAB, commissioning HVAC systems, centrifugal pumps and pump performance, analog and digital controls, and water balancing procedures using flow meters, system components and temperatures. Also examined are fans, pumps, air distribution, water distribution, motors, electrical, fluid flow, psychrometrics, refrigeration, and instrument usage and care. Many useful equations and tables, TAB procedural details, graphics, TAB data and test forms are included.
