Designing with Chilled Beams


As a manufacturer of hydronic equipment and systems, Taco has an active interest in all things concerning chilled beam technology, so we offer up this recent article in Engineered Systems magazine, entitled, “Practical Implementation of Chilled Beams for Offices,” co-authored by Peter Rumsey, P.E. and John Weale, P.E., both of the engineering firm Integral Group, based in Oakland, CA.

The authors provide a solid primer on designing chilled beam systems, which they consider a “mainstream solution for more efficient system designs,” and they emphasize that “careful attention to the design details (discussed in their article) can allow any engineer to add this efficient system type to his or her design box.”
