Guideline E: Fouling Factors: A Survey of Their Application in Today's Air-Conditioning and Refrigeration Industry

Guideline Scope

This guideline addresses the influence of the fouling of heat transfer surfaces on water-chilling evaporators and water-cooled condensers. It describes fouling factor allowances applied to centrifugal and rotary screw water-chilling packages, positive displacement compressor water-chilling packages, and absorption water-chilling and water-heating packages in ARI Standards 550/590 and 560.
