Useful Formulas

Chiller Evaporator Flow Formula: GPM = 24*Tons/∆T water
Chiller Condenser Flow Formula: GPM = 30*Tons/∆T water
Cooling Tower Flow Formula: GPM = 30*Tons (chiller)/∆T water
Boiler Flow Rate: GPM = 2*MBH/∆T water
Sensible Heat Calculation (at sea level): SMBH = 1.085 * CFM/1000 * (∆T air)
Total Heat Calculation (at sea level): TMBH = 4.5 * CFM/1000 * (∆h air)
Coil Flow Formula: GPM = 2*MBH/∆T water
Pump Energy: Pump BHP Water = (GPM x Head ft) / (3960 x Pump eff)
Fan Energy: Fan BHP Air = (CFM x Static Press in) / (6356 x Fan eff)
BHP to KW Conversion: KW = HP x .7456
