The two values are likely to vary slightly from each other.

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.

The parameters described so far are combined to produce the psychrometric chart, which dates back to empirical work undertaken by James Glaisher in Greenwich in the first half of the 19th century. Share to Twitter Share to Facebook. Sensible heat is that added to, or taken frommoist air without a change in moisture content and latent heat is that added to, or taken frommoist air without a change of dry bulb temperature.

The molecular mass of water vapour is 18 and so the specific gas constant may be obtained from These calculations may be reorganised to determine unknown variables for any of the processes illustrated in this article. Figure 4 — Psychrometry of Steam Humidification.

Sensible heating is shown in Figure 2. This may be achieved, for example, with a heater battery made up from rows of hot water or steam coils, or electric resistance heaters or as the result of some heat recovery mechanism such as a flat plate heat recovery device.

The Psychrometric Chart The psychrometric chart is a very useful tool that can unlock the mystery surrounding the properties of air. The psychrometric values were based on the on-coil chqrt off-coil dry-bulb and wet-bulb temperatures as indicated in the diagram. Display a fully customizable psychrometric chart in both landscape and portrait modes. Create an unlimited number of psychrometric chart projects.

The process that would typically result from a steam humidifier almost pure latent heating is indicated in Figure 4 — it can reasonably be considered as a vertical line following a constant dry-bulb temperature. Where two psychhrometric streams combine adiabatically as they normally would the resulting air will have a psychrometric state that is related psyychrometric the proportions of each of the combining air mass flowrates.

There is also a scale showing the specific enthalpy of the air below the temperature scale. Also, you can create templates that you can reuse over and over again.

When illustrating the air condition in a project or job notes it might be clearer to refer to a printed chart possibly conveniently plastic coated and reusable to read off the data and then convert that into a sketch similar to that shown in the figure where the data and processes are not lost in the plethora of printed lines.

CIBSE Guide C has lists of the values of all the properties of air as described above for various dry bulb temperatures.

Also, create custom labels anywhere on the chart.

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 pschrometric the individual charts. In addition, you can double-tap a point to display the point properties and then edit them.

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. Purchase Understanding Psychrometrics, 3rd ed. The opposite process, sensible cooling, is shown in Figure 3. Figure 1 — Outline Psychrometric Chart. When lines are drawn on the chart they reflect changes in sensible heat or latent heat or a combination of the two.

The chart was later refined by others in the US, including the famous Willis Carrier at the beginning of the 20th century, by which time the uncertainties of wet bulb temperature measurement were well understood.


Figure 5 — Psychrometry of Sensible and Latent Cooling. This equation allows calculation of the properties of gases under different pressures and temperatures. A photo-enlarged chart or a specific area from the chart produced by computer software will improve the resolution.

If molecules of water vapour were to be continually added to a volume of static air for example, from a room humidifier then at some point the air would not be able to support any more molecules — the air is said to be saturated at that point and any further water molecules added will simply condense out.

Air is normally considered to be a mix of dry air and water vapour. Please note that the options for this question are: Also on the vertical axis is the continuation of the specific psychroketric scale. The atmospheric pressure will alter with both weather and location and so the relative effect of the vapour pressure will also change.


Home Technical Resources Bookstore. Figure 2 — Psychrometry of Sensible Heating. So-called Adiabatic constant energy Humidification as shown in Figure 6 practically characterises the processes of atomising spray and ultrasonic humidifiers as well as the rarely used recirculating spray and wetted pad humidifiers. As you move your finger around the graph, the psychrometric properties at the top of the screen dynamically update. If any two properties are known, then the others may be read from the chart — so, for paychrometric, in the field this would typically be wet bulb and dry bulb temperature measured with a sling psychrometer.

We apologise for this.

As with any gas, the moving molecules of water vapour in the air exert a pressure. 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.
