Waterside Heat Recovery in HVAC Systems

$20.00 Lunch Meeting

$20.00 Lunch Meeting

Presentation:

In response to an energy crisis and an oil embargo, the 1970’s was a decade where design engineers recovered heat from the chiller’s condenser for use in other portions of the building or process. At that time Trane published a number of newsletters and manuals on heat and energy recovery.

During the building booms of the 1980’s and 1990’s interest in energy waned -- hence heat recovery was used less.

As energy costs have again increased and there is a raised awareness of environmental issues, today we see interest in heat recovery - such as that from the condensers of water cooled chillers. A problem is that many of the people who designed these systems are retired, so there is unfamiliarity in the systems. This presentation gives information that should help the design engineer properly determine if heat recovery is justified, and aids in selecting equipment, system configurations and controls to ensure proper operation
