Ask Rick: Pumped Glycol Energy Recovery | Pressure Drop for Konvekta Coils?

Q.  What is a typical pressure drop across the Konvekta coils?

Konvekta Pumped Glycol CoilA.  The air pressure drop across the coils depends on several factors: number of rows, air face velocity, fin spacing and tube alignments. There is a trade-off between thermal efficiency and air pressure drop which will be one of the design considerations if we know the price of heat ($/MBTU) and the price of electricity (fan power). Typically, one can expect an air pressure drop in the range of 0.4″ to 0.7″.
