MoistAirTab™ Example 4 - Cooling

Example 4

Moist air at 30°C dry-bulb temperature and 50% relative humidity enters a cooling coil at 5 m3/s and is processed to a final saturation condition at 10°C. Find the kW of refrigeration required.


The solution is presented below as a table generated from Excel. The gray shaded areas represent the input data.
