Summary

The topic of the Chilled Beam Application Guidebook REHVA no.5, chilled beam cooling, is extremely important with respect to indoor environments. This relatively new technology has rapidly spread all over the Europe. Its advantages include low noise generation, low room velocities and flexibility. High temperature level of the cooling media also improves the energy efficiency of the mechanical cooling and allows longer periods of free cooling. The guidebook presents the principles of chilled beam cooling and illustrates its practical applications.
