Coils selection module

Coils selection module

This software module allows coil performance calculation for:

  • monophase fluid coils
  • direct expansion coils
  • refrigerant condenser coils
  • steam coils

Total power is computed with NTU method with standard performance laws. Fine tuning of coefficients are possible if real data are available.

The main features of the module can be summarized as follows:

  • Advanced algorithm for best coil selection
  • Different types of coil geometry
  • All range of tube materials and thicknesses used by coil manufacturer, for each coil geometry
  • All range of fin materials and thicknesses used by coil manufacturer, for each coil geometry
  • All range of fin pitches used by coil manufacturer, for each coil geometry
  • Wide range of fluids available, both monophase and biphase

Furthermore, the software produces a report with the calculated coil perfomance.

The calculation for PED (Pressure Equipment Directive, 97/23/EC) requirements matching is also supported.

Finally, the coils price calculation is allowed by the software. If price calculation criteria is based on costs, materials price can be calculated by using our Altec costs references, while manpower costs and prices has to be provided by the manufacturer.  Alternatively, a different pricing criteria can be specified by the manufacturer and stored in the module.
