10 Air Conditioning System Water and Refrigeration Circuits

11 Factors in the Perception of Air Quality

12 Conversion Factors Quantity To Convert Into Multiply By: Volumetric cubic feet/minute cubic meters/second x 10-4 Flow (ft 3 /min) (m 3 /sec) Velocity feet/minute meters/second (fpm) (m/s) Pressure inches water Pascals (in w.g.) (Pa)

13 Conservation of Mass 1 velocity = 50 FPM Hood 2 velocity = 3000 fpm Air Flow Duct Flow rate at point 1 is called Q 1 and is equal to Q = V. A Where flow rate at point 2 which is called Q 2 Q = Volumetric Flow Rate, ft 3 /min V = Air Velocity, ft/min or fpm A = Cross Sectional Area, ft 2 or SF

14 Conservation of Mass Q = V. A 8 inch duct 1 12 inch duct 3 6 inch duct 2 Q 1 + Q 2 = Q 3 V 1 A 1 + V 2 A 2 = V 3 A 3

15 AIR FLOW At standard temperature and pressure (STP): * 1 atmosphere & 70 o F * The density of air is lb m /ft 3 Air will flow from a higher pressure region to a lower pressure region Three Different Types of Pressure Measurements * Static * Velocity * Total *

16 Types of Pressure Measurements Static Pressure (S P ) potential energy can be + or bursting or collapsing measured perpendicular to flow Velocity Pressure (V P ) kinetic energy accelerates from 0 to some velocity Exerted in direction of flow always + Total Pressure (T P ) combined static & velocity components can be + or - measure of energy content of air stream Always decreasing as flow travels downstream thru a system only rising when going across a fan

17 TP = SP + VP TP _ + SP _ + VP +

18 Conservation of Energy TP = SP + VP or T P = S P + V P Energy losses: Acceleration of air Hood entry Duct losses: friction (function of system materials & design) Fitting losses: contractions & expansions T P1 = T P2 + h L now substitute T P = S P + V P S P1 + V P1 = S P2 + V P2 + h L

19 Hood Bench Grinder Pressure Graphs for TP, SP, and VP

20 Velocity Pressure & Velocity V = 1096 (V P /p) 0.5 where p = air STP p = lb m /ft 3 V = 4005 (V P ) 0.5 Velocity pressure is a function of the velocity and fluid density. Velocity pressure will only be exerted in the direction of air flow and is always positive.

21 Bench Grinder Exhaust Ventilation 1 Duct diameter = 3 inches Area = ft Q 1 = Q 2 If Q desired is 300 cfm Then Q = V A V = Q A V = (300) / (0.0068) V = 4490 fpm If there are no losses from the grinder hood entry then: SP 1 + VP 1 = SP 2 + VP 2 but: SP 1 = 0 and VP 1 0 we then have: 0 = SP 2 + VP 2 or -VP 2 = SP 2

22 Bench Grinder Exhaust Ventilation 1 Duct diameter = 3 inches Area = ft 2 V = 4490 fpm 2 3 If there are no losses from the grinder hood entry then: SP 1 + VP 1 = SP 2 + VP 2 but: SP 1 = 0 and VP 1 0 we then have: 0 = SP 2 + VP 2 or SP 2 = (-VP 2 ) from V = 4005 (VP) 0.5 VP 2 = (4490/4005) 2 VP 2 = 1.26 in w.g. then: SP 2 = (-VP 2 ) SP 2 = in w.g.

23 Bench Grinder Exhaust Ventilation 1 SP h Duct diameter = 3 inches Area = ft 2 V = 4490 fpm 2 3 However there are losses thru the grinder hood entry SP 2 = - (VP 2 + h e ) where h e is the energy loss of the hood entry Static pressure (SP) must decrease due to acceleration of air up to the duct velocity F h is defined as the energy loss factor (for that hood design) Energy losses will be measured as a function of the velocity pressure in the system h e = (F h ) (VP) Now we define the static pressure at the hood as SP h SP h is also called the hood static suction and is the absolute value of SP 2

24 Bench Grinder Exhaust Ventilation 1 S Ph Duct diameter = 3 inches Area = ft 2 V = 4490 fpm Now add the hood entry loss: 2 3 SP h = VP 2 + h e = VP 2 + (F h ) (VP 2 ) Assume that the hood energy loss factor for this hood is 0.40 SP h = (0.40) (1.26) = 1.76 in w.g.

25 Flanged Inlet with Fd = 0.49

26 Flanged Inlet with F d = 0.49

27 Hood Entry Coefficients Actual Flow C e = Hypothetical Flow no losses (4005) (VP) 0.5 (A) (VP) 0.5 C e = = (4005) (SP h ) 0.5 (A) (SP h ) 0.5 C e = (VP/SP h ) 0.5

28 Hood Entry Coefficients C e = (VP/SP h ) 0.5 Typical values for C e are known for some hoods. For the bench grinder hood with a straight take-off : C e = 0.78

29 Example Problem What static pressure (SP h ) should be set at the bench grinder hood to maintain a duct velocity of 4000 fpm if the take-off duct size is 4 inch diameter? What is the volumetric flow rate?

30 Example Problem V = 4000 fpm Q = VA = 4005(A)(VP) 0.5 Q = VA = 348 cfm A for 4 inch duct diameter = ft 2 C e bench grinder hood = 0.78 C e = (VP/SP h ) 0.5 = 0.78 (VP/SP h ) = (0.78) 2 V = 4005 (VP) 0.5 (VP) 0.5 = (4000)/(4005) VP = in w.g. SP h = VP/(0.78) 2 = (0.998)/(0.608) = 1.64 in w.g in w.g.
