Function


FUNCTION



The CHH unit is an active chilled beam for bulkhead installation.

The primary supply air enters the plenum of the active chilled beam, from where it is diffused into the room through nozzles and a supply grille on the front side of the beam. The supply air nozzle jets efficiently induce ambient room air through the lower return air grille and the heat exchanger, where it is either cooled or heated. The combined air jet is directed along the ceiling surface.

Three different nozzle sizes are available to enable various supply air flow rates. The nozzle plates are inter-changeable to account for layout or room changes.

Waterside cooling and heating capacity control

The chilled beam can be equipped in the factory with either a standard control valve or a combination control valve.

Controls may include either a standard control valve or a combination control valve. Both control valves are operated with a thermal actuator, and the water flow rate of the control valve is based on room air temperature. The standard control valve has an adjustable kvs value. The combination control valve has an adjustable nominal water flow rate and there is a pressure difference measurement across the control valve in order to ensure that enough pressure difference (min.: 16 kPa) is available to achieve the adjusted water flow rate and the automatic balancing in use. See Document-section for more information.

Installation


INSTALLATION


The CHH unit is suitable for bulkhead and suspended ceiling installation. The chilled beam ceiling brackets can be fixed directly to the ceiling surface or suspended using threaded drop rods (8 mm). The recommended maximum distance of the supply air grille from the ceiling is 200 mm. The return air grille has a 40-mm telescopic connection and the supply air grille a 200-mm telescopic connection.

Install the main pipelines of the cooling and heating water loops above the level of the chilled beams to allow venting of the pipework.


If unit is delivered with factory fitted valves, there must be c. 80mm space above unit.

Adjustment


ADJUSTMENT


Cooling

The recommended cooling water mass flow rate is 0.02 0.10 kg/s, resulting in a temperature rise of 1 4 °C in the heat exchanger. To avoid condensation, the recommended inlet water temperature of the heat exchanger is 14 16 °C.

Heating

The recommended heating water mass flow rate is 0.01 0.04 kg/s, resulting in a temperature drop of 5 15 °C in the heat exchanger. The recommended temperature of the inlet water for the heat exchanger is 35 45 °C.

Balancing and control of water flow rates

Balance the water flow rates of the chilled beam with the standard control valve by selecting the design kvs value in the valve body. When using an automatically balancing combination valve, set the design water flow rate in the valve body and verify the pressure difference (min.: 16 kPa) across the valve. Regulating the water mass flow rate controls the cooling and heating capacity of the chilled beam.

Adjustment of supply air flow rate


Each chilled beam is equipped with a measurement tap for static pressure measurement, which enables fast and accurate measurement of the supply air flow rate through the beam. The air flow rate is calculated using the formula below.

Open the return air grille of the chilled beam. Clean the finned coils of the heat exchanger using a vacuum cleaner, taking care not to damage the finned coils. Clean the return and supply air grilles with a damp cloth.

Check at regular intervals that the actuators and water flow control valves are working.
