Heating, ventilation and air conditioning. The dew point temperature is equal to the fully saturated dry bulb or wet bulb temperatures. Both guides reduce the confusion by separately explaining 4 of the 6 sets of curves which make up a psychrometric chart. They are also available in low and high psychhrometric ranges and for different pressures. In psychrometrics, the peychrometric quantifies the total energy of both the dry air and water vapour per kilogram of dry air. These are not parallel to wet bulb temperature lines.


Thus we introduce an oblique enthalpy axis and enthalpy black lines as follows: The term dry-bulb is customarily added to temperature to distinguish it from wet-bulb and dewpoint temperature. The saturation temperature of the moisture present in the sample of air, it can also be defined as the temperature at which the vapour changes into liquid condensation. Follow the interior curved lines to see various levels of relative humidity. Next to or psycyrometric the same vertical line as the dew point measurements, there will be markings denoting the various vapor pressures in inches of mercury or millibars.

The most popular chart in common usage is that developed by ASHRAE American Society of Heating, Refrigeration and Air-Conditioning Engineershowever we feel that the construction of a simplified version of the chart based on approximations of the various equations can be a very useful tool for developing an psychrometri of it’s usage.

Humidity ratio is usually expressed as mass of moisture per mass of dry air pounds or kilograms of moisture per pound or kilogram of dry air, respectively. A chart is valid for a given air pressure or elevation above sea level. Psychrometrics, psychrometry, and hygrometry are names ibve the field of engineering concerned with the physical and thermodynamic properties of gas-vapor mixtures.


At first glance there is little resemblance between the charts, but if the spychrometric is rotated by ninety degrees and looked at in a mirror the resemblance becomes apparent.

Psychrometrics – Wikipedia

WMO provides a page chapter on psychromrtric measurement ihvr temperature. We notice from the development in Section a that the equations relating relative and specific humidity, temperature wet and dry bulbpressure air, vapor and enthalpy are quite tedious and inconvenient. The thermodynamic wet-bulb temperature is a thermodynamic property of a mixture of air and water vapor.

The ratio of the vapor pressure of moisture in the sample to the saturation pressure at the dry bulb temperature of the sample. An interesting and informative description on Psychrometric Chart Use for livestock and greenhouse applications has been presented in a University of Connecticut website psychromehric Michael Darre.

Such substances include cotton, paper, cellulose, other wood products, sugar, calcium oxide burned lime and many chemicals and fertilizers. Molds and fungi can be controlled by keeping relative humidity low.

The four equations highlighted above were programmed in MATLAB and used to plot the simplified psychrometric charts shown above. Many substances are hygroscopicmeaning they attract water, usually in proportion to the relative humidity or above a critical relative humidity. The value indicated psychrlmetric a wet-bulb thermometer often provides an adequate approximation of the thermodynamic chaft temperature.

The region above the saturation curve is a two-phase region that represents a mixture of chxrt moist air and liquid water, in thermal equilibrium. Psychrometric charts are used by engineers and scientists to visualize the relationships of gases and vapors. A psychrometric chart is a graph of the thermodynamic parameters of moist air at a constant pressure, often equated to an elevation relative to sea level.

Thus with the aid of the chart we either heat or cool, add moisture or dehumidify as required in order psychdometric bring the air into the comfort zone. This is the t —axis, psychtometric abscissa horizontal axis. Tips Before you begin to read the chart, make note of the units of measurement used in each scale. Around the extremes of the chart and just outside of the saturation curve, locate the diagonal scales which represent enthalpy in BTU per pound of dry air.

From there, compare the difference in the measurements and make note of how the change affected the air. What is Psychrometric Chart?

An interesting application of using a swamp cooler to cool drinking water in extremely hot environments is described in the posting of Rich Oppel in the At Chartt blog of the New York Times: From any two independent ones of the six parameters dry bulb temperature, wet bulb temperature, relative humidity, humidity ratio, specific enthalpy, and cgart volume, all the others can be determined.

In human terms, our thermal comfort is in large part a consequence of not just psychrometdic temperature of the surrounding air, but because we cool ourselves via perspiration the extent to which that air is saturated with water vapor. Not to be confused with Psychometricsa discipline of psychology and education. The Mollier diagram coordinates are enthalpy and humidity ratio.

psychromeetric As the relative humidity increases at a certain temperature, the specific volume of the air also increases. The “Mollier i – x ” Enthalpy – Humidity Mixing Ratio diagram, developed by Richard Mollier in[12] is an alternative psychrometric chart, preferred by many users in Scandinavia, Eastern Europe, and Russia.

Thus the constant DP and WB temperature lines are different. Retrieved from ” https:
