ATLANTA - New chapters related to UV lamp systems and combustion turbine inlet cooling are featured in the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers’ (ASHRAE’s) new 2008 ASHRAE Handbook, HVAC Systems and Equipment volume - HVAC Systems and Equipment.

It discusses systems and the equipment that comprise them, including features and differences. The 48-chapter book is designed to help system designers and building operators select and use equipment. The chapter on UV lamp systems addresses the use of such systems to improve IAQ.

“Use of ultraviolet germicidal irradiation has increased as concerns about the transmission via ductwork of pathogenic organisms, such as tuberculosis and even bioterrorism agents, have escalated among designers,” said Walter Grondzik, chair of the subcommittee that coordinated publishing of the 2008 volume.

The new combustion turbine inlet cooling chapter provides discussion on how the cooling is used to help improve combustion turbine performance. It was added to address use of such cooling to improve the environmental and economic performance of combustion turbine installations, typically those used for electric power generation.

“Inlet cooling can mitigate the negative effects of high inlet air temperature, a critical consideration in this era of rapidly increasing energy costs and depleting resources,” he said.
