Primary/Secondary and
Tertiary Pumping (schematics A&B below)
Coil Pumping Strategies
Variable speed pumps vs. Single pas Valve
vs. Mixing valves vs. Diverting Valves
Impact of Piping Coil
How will this affect needed CHW flow?
Plumbing Arrangement
in Building’s Hydronic Systems
Baseboard heaters
Fan coil systems
What is the difference between
these two configuration?
Hydronic Terms
• Open-loop vs. closed loop
•
Open System

Pump
•
Closed System
Chiller
Pump
Cooling coil in AHU
Is this open or closed system ?
Cooling towers
Relationship between velocity in a pipe
and pressure drop
Δp ~ v2
Δp = Constant × v2
Required power (P) for the pump
P = V × Δp
Δp [Pa or ft water]
smaller pipe
larger pipe
P –power [W],
V –volume flow rate [m3/s],
Δp – pressure drop [Pa]
v – velocity [m/s]
Δp ~ v2 (Δp ~ V2 – when same pipe is used)
P ~ V × V2 – when same pipe is used
P ~ V3
P2/P1 = (V2/V1)3 For the same pipe
When different pipe is used for the same flow rate:
For the same
flow rate V

D2= D1/2
A2=1/22 A1
V2=22 V1
P2/P1 = (D1/D2)4 - for the same flow rate
or 50% smaller diameter of the pipe
v [m/s or fpm]
for the same flow rate wee have:
4 times larger velocity
16 times larger pressure drop and
16 times lager power for the pump
