Well Done ASHRAE Tucson!!!
Thanks to the generous sponsorship
and support for the event, we are happy to announce that approximately $8500.00 was raised for ASHRAE Research
Promotion, Student Scholarships for the current year, and helping continually fund the Stan Adams Memorial
Scholarship. This scholarship will provide a minimum $1,500 Chapter Scholarship in perpetuity once the $30,000 initial

Active and Passive Beams

Time: 12:00 noon - 1:30pm

Active and Passive
Active beam systems are gaining popularity in the North American market. When used correctly, they can reduce HVAC
system energy consumption for cooling and heating when compared to all air systems. Active and passive beams are
especially effective in renovation projects where cooling capacity of the system needs to be increased without
increasing duct sizes. This presentation will describe beam operation principles, and focus on special considerations
during HVAC system design and commissioning. Application cases for beams operating in constant and variable air volume
systems will be described. This presentation will also describe efficient ways of integrating active beams with
Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems. Specifics and limitations of using beams in heating mode will also be discussed.
