This leads to lowered EATR, but to an increased outdoor air correction factor (OACF).
Figure 3 demonstrates the increase in required ventilation air penalty as EATR is decreased, and how this penalty is due to the increase in OACF because of the difference in pressure across the supply/exhaust interface.
In addition to the minimal impact to IAQ, the current work has found that as EATR is decreased the OACF is increased drastically, therefore increasing the required ventilation air significantly.
The performance of desiccant drying wheels may be characterized by a similar set of factors as energy wheels; however, some factors, such as sensible and total energy effectiveness, EATR and OACF
are much less significant and are usually not considered while the regenerator input energy needs to be characterized by a dimensionless coefficient of performance (COP) (Charoensupaya and Worek 1988; Van den Bulck et al.
Bret Buganski, anchor at KOCO 5 News, served as emcee and Cher Golding, OACF executive director, spoke briefly.
The luncheon was on World AIDS Day and was sponsored by Barbara Cooper, a founder of OACF with her husband, Jackie; Commerce Bank; and The Journal Record.
OACF provides support, education, advocacy and resources to end the HIV and AIDS epidemic.
Since 1991, the OACF
