The term option shall mean a choice from the specified products, manu-facturers, or procedures which shall be made by the Contractor. The term relief air ductwork shall mean for the purposes of theseContract Documents all ductwork carrying air from a room, space, or area without theuse of a fan or with the use of a return fan to be discharged to the outdoors. The terms disapproved and rejected shall mean theContractor shall discard and replace the submittal because the submittal did notcomply with the Contract Documents in a major way. Chiller performance requirements can be found in Part 28. Cooling Towers and Condensers 30.
The term testing may be described as the inspection, investigation, analysis, and diagnosis of all systems and components to assure that the sys- tems are operable, meet the requirements of the Contract Documents, and are ready for operation. Do not use operable louvers because they become rusty or become covered with snow and ice and may not operate: 1. The term final inspection or observation shallbe held to the limitations of the Engineers responsibilities to fulfill the requirementsof the Contract Documents and shall not relieve the Contractor from Contract obliga-tions. Mandatory energy conservation requirements must still be met using the performance approach. Bypass around the closed circuit evaporative cooler or the cooling tower is required for climates with heating degree days in excess of 1,800 to prevent heat loss, except for minimum flow to prevent freez- ing.
Dont put offices with conference rooms or other dissimilar rooms. Constant volume flow systems are limited to see Figs. The term outdoor shall mean for the purposes of these Contract Documents items or devices not contained within the confines of a building, structure, or facility and items or devices that are exposed to weather. Piping installations are generally governed by one of the following three codes. Mechanical ventilation systems may reduce the 1. Truck loading area or dock, bus parking idling area: 25 feet.
When within 10 feet, intake must be a minimum of 2 feet below any source of contaminant. Required Insulation Thickness depends on Fluid Temperature, Insulation Type, and Pipe Size. Design of Fluid Systems, Steam Utilization. The term Conditioned shall mean for the purposes of these Con- tract Documents rooms, spaces, or areas that are provided with mechanical heating and cooling. The choice is notwhether the Work is to be performed, but which product, which manufacturer,or which procedure is to be used. Downloaded from Digital Engineering Library McGraw-Hill www.
Lengths greater than 75 feet: 1 per foot toward hood. Uninsulated piping: Add 20 percent for hangers and supports. Driveway, street, or parking area: 5 feet. The references listed in the paragraphs to follow form the basis for most of theinformation contained in this manual. Mechanical and Electrical Equipment for Buildings. Elbows: 3 duct diameters up and down stream3. Heating Load Rules of Thumb 8.
Locate all valves, strainers, unions, and flanges so that they are accessible. In addition, the experienced engineer or designer may find this manual useful as a quick design reference guide, field manual, and teaching tool. Energy codes restrict the use of these systems. Architectural, Structural, and Electrical Information? Recommend using pressure independant terminal units. The terms contract specifications and specificationsshall mean the description, provisions, and other requirements pertaining to themethod and manner of performing the Work and to the quantities and qualities ofmaterials to be furnished under the Contract. Addendums are issued as changes, amendments, or clarifications to the original or previously issued Contract Documents. On chiller stop sequence, the bypass valve is slowly opened.
Hard drawn copper pipe has higher allowable stress than annealed copper pipe. The valve goes from full open to full close in a quarter turn. If a wind velocity of less than 3. A joint made with pipes, valves, or fittings in which the joining is accomplished by threading the components. On chiller start sequence, the primary chilled water pump is started, the bypass valve is opened, and the supply header valve is closed.
