Module 9: The basic psychrometric processes
We apologise for this. The Psychrometric Chart The psychrometric chart is a very useful tool that can unlock the mystery surrounding the properties of air. Also, you can create templates that you can reuse over and over again.
This is indicated in Figure 7 as air stream A mixing with air stream B to produce mixed air at condition M. A steam humidifier will produce a small amount of sensible heating since the higher temperature of the device the tube carrying the steam into the air will increase the temperature of the air and there will be a very slight sensible heating effect from the steam itself.
This vapour pressurePv measured in Pa or mbaris related to the mass of water vapour in the air — the more molecules present, the higher the vapour pressure. The outline of the chart is as shown in Figure 1 and it may be used for individual rooms or processes as well as describing the changes to properties that take place in a complete air handling system. A photo-enlarged chart or a specific area from the chart produced by computer software will improve the resolution.
As with any gas, the moving molecules of water vapour in the air exert a pressure.
Please note that the options for this question are: The program on the CD allows the user to plot typical psychrometric processes and perform the corresponding energy calculations on-screen, without having to first print out the individual charts. These relationships can also be usefully employed to examine the properties of other gas mixtures — as might be found, for example, in controlled specialist environments. The guide also includes sets of equations that will allow determination of values for other gases that may be used in spreadsheets or computer programmes to the Characteristic Equation may be used in conjunction with the Gas Laws.
Figure 6 — Psychrometry of Adiabatic Humidification. In addition, you can double-tap a point to display the point properties and then edit them. Over the next blogs, I will cover different aspects of the chart and show how it can be used in practice.
This is the nominal air pressure at sea level. Figure 7 — Psychrometry of Mixing Air Streams. The opposite process, chrt cooling, is shown in Figure 3. The process that would typically result from a steam humidifier almost pure pyschrometric heating is indicated in Figure 4 — it can reasonably be considered as a vertical line following a constant dry-bulb temperature.
This will relate such parameters as the number and shape of coil rows, the spacing and type of fins on the coil, and the air velocity. Posted by The Gibbons Group at It is a graphical representation that shows properties of air at 1 atmosphere pressure The chart was later refined by others in the US, including the famous Willis Carrier at the beginning cibes the 20th century, by which time the uncertainties of wet bulb temperature measurement were well understood.
These calculations may be reorganised cibsd determine unknown variables for any of the processes illustrated in this article. New in the Cyart Edition: For a cooling coil to provide sensible cooling only and no latent cooling the coil surface temperature must be greater than the dew-point temperature of the air. There is also a scale showing the specific enthalpy of the air below the temperature scale.
Create an unlimited number of psychrometric chart projects. Figure 5 — Psychrometry of Sensible and Latent Cooling. Figure 4 — Psychrometry of Steam Humidification. Figure 1 — Outline Psychrometric Chart. The energy contained in the air as indicated by Enthalpy, h relating to both the sensible and latent energy increases towards the right and the top of the chart as each of dry-bulb temperature and moisture content increase. The two cigse are likely to vary slightly from each other.
Some of the sprayed water will evaporate into the air — the heat to cause that evaporation being taken from the air itself and so the air dry bulb temperature will drop until the point where the air is saturated with water psychromeetric.

Email a list of psychfometric the points and their properties for a completed chart, along with a PDF of the chart itself. A future article will combine these processes to examine system psychrometry. Understanding Psychrometrics serves as psychrometriic lifetime reference manual and basic refresher course for those who use psychrometrics on a recurring basis and provides a four- to six-hour psychrometrics learning module to students; air-conditioning designers; agricultural, food process, and industrial process engineers; meteorologists and others.
Also, create custom labels anywhere on the chart. Display a fully customizable psychrometric chart in both landscape and portrait modes.
Easily plot HVAC and other psychrometric processes while out in the field, save the graphs, and then email the graph and results to yourself or clients. Android app no longer available. Dry bulb temperature and wet bulb depression tables or calculations can be used to determine the air moisture content.
When using the Psychrometric Chart for plotting cycles that include both latent and sensible change the individual processes are simplified to straight lines. The form of the psychrometric chart has changed little from the early versions — the cart visually chwrt alteration being the changes in the units to SI for the CIBSE Chart, see Figure 2. And, of course, is most frequently sensed using an electrical or electronic device.
Figure 8 — Example Psychrometric Process. To explore the calculations associated with the processes discussed so far consider the cooling coil shown in Figure 8, where all the data has been read off a CIBSE Psychrometric chart.
