Proper Placement of Pressure Transmitters

September 2008
Heating/Piping/Air Conditioning Engineering;Sep2008, Vol. 80 Issue 9, p60
The article discusses the proper placement of pressure-feedback transmitters which is the most important factor in realizing projected energy savings in heating, ventilation and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. It highlights several illustrations which indicate the system flow of pressure transmitter. Moreover, it emphasizes that the lower the controller set point relative to the design pressure of a pump, the less power that is required.
