Function

The Halton Rex for Vario chilled beam is designed to be installed flush with a suspended ceiling.

The primary supply air enters the plenum of the active chilled beam. From there the air is diffused into the room through nozzles controlled by Operation Mode Damper (OMD).
The supply air nozzle jets efficiently induce ambient room air, which is directed horizontally along the ceiling surface. Secondary air is drawn through the perforation located at the bottom of the beam. The air then cycled through the heat exhanger, where it is either cooled or heated before being diffused into the room.

Velocity control in the occupied zone

Halton Velocity Control (HVC) is used for adjusting room air velocity conditions either when room layout is changed (e.g., in cases where the partition wall is located near the chilled beam) or when local, individual velocity conditions need to be altered. HVC adjustment has an impact on the induced room air flow through the heat exchanger, and therefore it either increases or decreases both the velocities in the occupied zone and the cooling/heating capacity of the chilled beam.


Pos. 1 = Throttle position      Pos. 2 = Normal position      Pos. 3 = Boost position

The HVC damper is divided into sections (Pos.1-3) to enable the adjustment of conditions in different parts of the occupied zone.

It is recommended to design the chilled beam in the normal position in order to allow both throttle and boost functions during the building s life cycle.
 

Operation mode control

The supply air flow of the chilled beam nozzle jets are dependent on effective heat exchanger length and static chamber pressure.

Halton Operation Mode Damper (OMD) is used for adjusting and controlling the outdoor air flow rate in a room space. The airflow rate is dependent on the opening position of the control damper. Operation mode of the room space is monitored with occupancy sensor. In unoccupied mode (1.) the supply air flow rate is set to minimum value that is able to remove material emission. In occupied mode (2.) supply airflow rate is set to normal office mode. When more persons are coming to the space, based on CO2-sensor air flow is increased to boost mode (3.) to maintain the set target value of indoor air quality.


1. Unoccupied mode             2. Occupied mode                3. Boost mode
 

Temperature controls

The cooling and heating capacities of the chilled beam are controlled by regulating the water flow rate according to the control signal of the room temperature controller.

In heating mode, it is recommended that the temperature difference between the jet outlet and room air would not be greater than 3 °C. The inlet water temperature of the heat exchanger should not be higher than 35 °C. Optimal heating performance requires an appropriate primary air flow rate. Thus, the air handling unit shall operate during heating periods to ensure proper heating performance.

Controls

The Halton Rex Vario controller is a room controller dedicated to complete room applications providing the control of cooling, heating, demand controlled ventilation.

  • Halton Rex Vario integrated room controller
  • Room air temperature measurement to control space temperature
  • Occupancy sensor for demand based operation with
    Operation Mode Damper (OMD)
  • Air quality control with carbon dioxide sensor, CO2
  • Cooling with chilled water control valve
  • Heating with hot water control valve as an option
  • Several user interface options, either wall mounted or hand-held
    remote controller
  • Condense prevention

The Halton Rex Vario room controller manages the chilled beam operation by controlling chilled water and hot water control valves in 2- or 4-pipe applications.

The Halton Rex Vario room controller provides a wide variety of connections for sensors and actuators and the possibility to connect a wall mounted panel with or without a display for local set points adjustment e.g. temperature, and a wireless remote control.

See documents from the Documents-section for more information.

Installation

The Halton Rex for Vario active chilled beam is especially suitable for ceiling mounting running parallel to exterior wall of the room. When selecting of the chilled beam orientation, the location of the supply air and water circuit connections are taken into account.

The chilled beam can be attached directly to the ceiling surface (H1 = 230 mm) or suspended using threaded drop rods (8 mm). Depending on the length of the unit the fixing points are located as show at the drawings.

Install the main pipelines of the cooling and heating water circuits above the level of the chilled beam in order to enable venting of the pipework.

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 maximum temperature of the inlet water for the heat exchanger is 35 °C.

Balancing and control of water flow rates

Balance the water flow rates of the Halton Rex for Vario chilled beam with adjustment valves installed on the outlet side of the cooling and heating water loops. The cooling capacity and heating capacity of the chilled beam are controlled by regulating the water mass flow rate. The water mass flow rate can be controlled by using an ON/OFF valve or a two- or three-way proportional valve.

Adjustment of supply air flow rate

Connect a manometer in the measurement tap and measure the static pressure in the Halton Rex for Vario chilled beam. The air flow rate is calculated according to the formula below.

Open the front panel of the supply air plenum, the ductwork, and the heat exchanger. In beams longer than 2400 mm, the front panel can be opened in two sections.

Clean the supply air plenum and finned coils of the heat exchanger with a vacuum cleaner, taking care not to damage the finned coils.
