SelectPlus™ Training – Selecting Dehumidification Heat Pipes (II)

This webinar video will start with the basics of the wrap-around heat pipe. It will compare the old approach of the costly overcool/reheat and offer the alternative wrap-around heat pipe solution. In addition, it will discuss how the wrap-around heat pipe will help meet various ASHRAE Standards including both ASHRAE Standard 62.1 2013, as well as ASHARE Standard 90.1 2013. The training goes through 3 examples which go through 3 different applications of the technology. These include an AHU using reheat, neutral air, and downsizing DX equipment with the wrap-around. Throughout, users are shown how to select, output reports, run economic analysis, and other tips/tricks.

Optimizing Dedicated Outside Air Systems

The webinar video starts with an introduction of DOAS systems and why they are used. A few of the advantages discussed in regards to a DOAS system include the benefit of better indoor air quality (IAQ), more accurate building pressurization, and an easier path to LEED points with a decoupled system. From there the video discusses how to optimize DOAS Units with wrap-around heat pipes, which can lead to downsizing equipment and increasing EER of the unit.
