Cooling Tower gpm/HP to EIR

1 post / 0 new

Hi Nick,
I have been out of commission the past two weeks. I came back to this task yesterday. My reading of FAN-KW/CELL is it is not exposed unless you input the size of the tower. If auto-sizing the tower, you have the EIR available for defining the fan power. I believe EIR = 0.013 is fairly equivalent to 38.2 gpm/HP when auto-sizing in eQuest. If my aging memory serves me well, I believe the value was EIR = 0.015 in 90.1-1989.
