  3. Seasonal energy efficiency ratio - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Seasonal_energy_efficiency...

    The energy efficiency ratio (EER) of a particular cooling device is the ratio of output cooling energy (in BTUs) to input electrical energy (in watt-hours) at a given operating point. EER is generally calculated using a 95 °F (35 °C) outside temperature and an inside (actually return-air) temperature of 80 °F (27 °C) and 50% relative humidity.

  4. Reverberatory furnace - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reverberatory_furnace

    Reverberatory furnace. A reverberatory furnace is a metallurgical or process furnace that isolates the material being processed from contact with the fuel, but not from contact with combustion gases. The term reverberation is used here in a generic sense of rebounding or reflecting, not in the acoustic sense of echoing .

  5. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Heating,_ventilation,_and...

    In the lower middle is the capacitor. Heating, ventilation, and air conditioning ( HVAC) [1] is the use of various technologies to control the temperature, humidity, and purity of the air in an enclosed space. Its goal is to provide thermal comfort and acceptable indoor air quality.

  6. Thermal expansion valve - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_expansion_valve

    A thermal expansion valve is a key element to a heat pump; this is the cycle that makes air conditioning, or air cooling, possible. A basic refrigeration cycle consists of four major elements: a compressor, a condenser, a metering device and an evaporator. As a refrigerant passes through a circuit containing these four elements, air ...

  7. Vacuum furnace - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Vacuum_furnace

    A vacuum furnace is a type of furnace in which the product in the furnace is surrounded by a vacuum during processing. The absence of air or other gases prevents oxidation, heat loss from the product through convection, and removes a source of contamination. This enables the furnace to heat materials (typically metals and ceramics) to ...

  8. Reversing valve - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Reversing_valve

    A reversing valve is a type of valve and is a component in a heat pump, that changes the direction of refrigerant flow. By reversing the flow of refrigerant, the heat pump refrigeration cycle is changed from cooling to heating or vice versa. This allows a residence or facility to be heated and cooled by a single piece of equipment, by the same ...

  9. Waste heat recovery unit - Wikipedia

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Waste_heat_recovery_unit

    A waste heat recovery unit ( WHRU) is an energy recovery heat exchanger that transfers heat from process outputs at high temperature to another part of the process for some purpose, usually increased efficiency. The WHRU is a tool involved in cogeneration. Waste heat may be extracted from sources such as hot flue gases from a diesel generator ...
