The design decisions made in selecting and sizing chilled water distribution system components have a direct impact on the performance of the overall chilled water system. Attention to fundamentals can also help improve system performance. In this article, I intend to point out some common problems that must be addressed in chilled water distribution systems. These problems can impede the system’s ability to perform reliably and efficiently. These are all real examples from actual facilities that I have designed, peer reviews I performed of designs by others, or retrofits of systems designed by others.
