Hydronic Balancing Part 2: Making the Most of System Diversity

Practically any commercial or institutional building has a certain amount of diversity within its cooling load, meaning that peak loads will never occur simultaneously in all sections or zones of a facility. By mapping out the individual load patterns of these sections, engineers can adjust the mechanical design to reduce the overall amount of installed cooling capacity. This means incorporating variable flow, which necessitates precise hydronic balancing.
