Chilled Beams and Chilled Ceiling Applications


Chilled Beams and Chilled Ceiling Applications

Chilled beam and chilled ceiling applications use chilled water for room temperature control.  Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DOAS), also use chilled water to dehumidify outdoor air below the dew point of the building being served.  This eliminates the expense for compressorized equipment.

Chilled beams systems with built in condensate removal capability can operate with low temperature chilled water.  In these cases the DOAS is responsible for only part of the humidity control capacity.

Chilled beam and chilled ceiling systems without condensate removal capability must rely 100% on the DOAS to maintain room dew point below the  chilled water temperature entering the chilled beam or chilled ceiling systems, to prevent condensate formation.

In either case the chilled water DOAS with MSP® Technology, plays an important role in maintaining indoor humidity.

The key to managing moisture issues is effective dew point control.  When the dew point of the air inside the building is kept below the chilled water temperature of the beams, condensation is avoided.

MSP® Wrap-Around Plate Dehumidification Technology has no moving parts in the airstream (except a fan) and is a reliable, low maintenance product with superior operating cost savings.
