The flow/pressure drop tab can be an extremely important tool. ASHRAE 90.1-2010 standards Table 184.108.40.206, introduces new sizing data for hydronic systems. The maximum recommended flow rate depends on three factors: velocity, number of expected operating hours of the system, and whether the system is variable flow/variable speed or other.
Let’s look at an example. Assume you have 1500 GPM. What is the minimum pipe size should you use? The answer is: it depends! Check the screenshots below.
Download the program and experience the power of this new tool from Bell and Gossett.
