HPT Solutions

Today’s post comes from Heat Pipe Technology as their June 2017 Newsletter. This month’s newsletter includes two features regarding HPT’s SelectPlus software in regards to their HRM-O model. Also in this edition, you’ll read about HPT’s newest case study and learn about an aircraft manufacturer being outfitted with wrap-around heat pipes…

Product Update: Over-Under Energy Recovery Model, HRM-O, Now Available in SelectPlus™

Over-under energy recovery model

HPT is happy to announce the addition of HRM-O with over / under airflow to our energy recovery product line up, which includes HRM-H and HRM-Z. This is the ultimate energy recovery optimization as it performs very well in one season and will have no performance in the other – a single season recovery system. These units are ideal for process applications and data centers. In fact, HPT has recently shipped several units for a data center located in the northeast.

This product has been available at HPT for years as a heat recovery module (HRM) with an over / under orientation, but HPT had to be contacted directly for selections and submittals. You will no longer have to do this. Selection, performance, and submittals can be easily generated in SelectPlus™ like our other products.  Click here to email for more information.

New Case Study: Utilizing Controllable Wrap-Around Heat Pipes to Enhance Chilled Beam Systems

New England University

HPT has recently added a new case study that deals with enhancing chilled beam systems, for a University in New England. Chilled beam systems require drier air than more common “all-air” systems to avoid condensation on the beams. In order to achieve this, DOAS units must provide low dew point air and reheat it so it’s no longer saturated and prone to condensing on the diffusers. Click on the link below to read how HPT’s Wrap-Around heat pipes help solve these issues, and what the results were.

When a University in New England decided to build a new facility – intended to integrate three programs from three separate colleges within a single building – they opted for chilled beam systems in all their classrooms to reduce overall energy consumption. A Dedicated Outside Air System (DOAS) is utilized to deliver fresh air to all the chilled beams in these rooms. Chilled beams systems require drier air than more common “all-air” systems to avoid condensation on the beams. So the DOAS must cool enough to provide low dew point air while reheating that air to be supplied at a more comfortable temperature. But how could they achieve this while further reducing energy consumption?

HPT Recently Shipped Several Wrap-Around Heat Pipes to a Major Aircraft Manufacturer

Heat Pipe Technology recently shipped several large Wrap-Around heat pipes (DHP-U) to a major aircraft manufacturer located in Missouri. This project is part of a new $200 million building that includes manufacturing and painting facilities. The Wrap-Around’s went into 100% OA units in order to provide as much pre-cool and re-heat as possible for the paint booths.

The heat pipes will be installed into four large custom AHU’s totaling 168,000 CFM’s. Each AHU will utilize one 6-row Wrap-Around heat pipe to pre-cool and re-heat air that is entering and leaving the cooling coil, respectively. Each heat pipe had a finned height of 123″ and a finned length of 97″. With the addition of the DHP’s, the estimated combined pre-cool and re-heat energy savings was $19,000/year per AHU. Payback of the heat pipes was estimated at less than 4 years!

SelectPlus™ Online Software – Selecting Our Recently Added HRM-O Model

SelectPlus Design Software

HPT has recently added an additional model to the energy recovery family for over-under airflow arrangements (HRM-O). We’ve added a video that guides you through the selection process for these types of models. You’ll be shown a general selection, as well as other useful things to look out for when selecting HRM-O’s. Click on the link below to watch the video.
