Carolina Heat Pipe provided energy efficient dehumidification for a high-rise commercial building located in Houston Texas. This project required a 29,000 CFM 100% outside air handler.
The smart solution provided by the experienced engineers at Carolina Heat Pipe was the installation of a non-controllable ST Mach 1 TRAHP™ Thermosyphon Run Around Heat Pipe system. The Thermosyphon Run Around Heat Pipe process is a passive process that does not require a pump or compressor and does not consume any energy. The TRAHP™ system is a simple passive reheat system consisting of two uniquely configured heat pipe thermosyphon coils which are positioned on either side of the cooling coil.
The Carolina Heat Pipe TRAHP™ system was custom designed for this specific application. When incorporated in an air handler the TRAHP™ will remove more moisture using less energy and provide a more comfortable environment.
The inclusion of a CHP Thermosyphon Run Around Heat Pipe (TRAHP™) makes the air conditioning system more effective and is often selected by building designers to reduce the energy load.
