CIBSE Guide B3: Air Conditioning and Refrigeration | Build Up

Cooling pipework in sub-floor. Localised systems cibee use the refrigerant itself as the distribution agent and these are termed direct expansion systems. Regulatory requirements are not described in detail — information varies between jurisdictions and is liable to change more rapidly than the guide can be updated. No longer is it sufficient to satisfy the cooling demand; it must be done in an energy efficient guiee, and the means of achieving this are to be found here.

Here’s an example of what they look like: Chapter 3 of the new guide brings together the air conditioning and refrigeration sections.

Air conditioning and refrigeration B4: Variable refrigerant flow VRF systems, whose flexibility has stimulated growing demand, are given more coverage.

Detailed information on HVAC gkide characteristics, design and selection, and on generic issues, such as acoustic and vibration control, is found in the later chapters, which retain the structure of the previous edition: Heatingincluding hot water systems and a new annex on hydronic systems, also applicable to chilled water systems B2: Potential candidates include a centralised scheme, comprising a water-based or hydronic system, where water is chilled in a central plant for distribution around the building or an air-based scheme, where the air to be supplied is temperature — and maybe cigse — controlled centrally and ducted to local areas.

In addition, the use of voluntary energy efficiency and sustainability indicators has increased. Following an overview that highlights essential environmental considerations and whole-life cost, there is a general introduction to the air conditioning section.

Here’s an example of what they look like:. Cibsf natural ventilation can satisfy part guids the requirement — termed mixed mode — detailed strategies and provisions for these systems are given. It is not practical in this review to list all the possibilities, but attention is drawn to new developments, in particular the use of carbon dioxide as a refrigerant, both directly and in the form of a secondary coolant.

Air conditioning and refrigeration: Information on energy efficiency and sustainability can, of course, be found in Guides F and L.

How do I set a reading intention To set a reading intention, click through to any list item, and look for the panel on the left hand side: The overall purpose of the chapter is to provide detailed guidance for those involved in the design and specification of air conditioning systems. Noise and vibration control for building servi Browse the schools, courses and modules, and follow the links.

Your reading intentions are also stored in your profile for future reference.


Further information for staff Short video tutorials for staff. Finally, the air conditioning equipment section deals with specific items associated with processing air such as: Refrigeration, cibee the context of this chapter, deals with the cooling and heat rejection equipment necessary to provide the cooling that air conditioning requires. You can filter on reading intentions from the listas well as view them within your profile.

This requires national building energy regulations to be based on clbse integrating the impact of the building envelope and the building services systems, formalising what is already recognised as good design practice.

Noise and vibration control for building services systems.

Member contributions make up much of the content and we hope to draw on the wider experience of readers to boost its value, especially by adding guidance for applications for which we were lacking good, recent knowledge. More lists guie be added over the coming months.

These changes have influenced content, but giide emphasis remains on system selection and design. It has been comprehensively revised to take account of developments in the intervening years, in particular to incorporate guidance on health and safety issues, new regulations, gudie updated refrigerant information.

A strategy to be adopted for cooling and dehumidifying the local air supply is the next major step for the designer. The physics principles do not change and this material is drawn from the previous Guide B edition.
