Major Hospital in Colombia to See 40% Less Energy Consumption with Addition of Wrap- Around Heat Pipes.

Heat Pipe Technology recently secured an order for thirteen factory installed controllable Wrap-Around heat pipes for a major hospital located in Colombia. This hospital is part of a multi-phase project with an estimated cost of $113 million, and is expected to offer state-of-the-art procedures and be one of the most technologically advanced hospitals in Colombia. It will also increase the availability of healthcare services in Colombia's region.


The heat pipes will be installed into thirteen large custom AHU's totaling 175,000 CFM's. Each AHU will utilize one 6-row controllable Wrap-Around heat pipe to pre-cool and re-heat air that is entering and leaving the chilled water coils, respectively. The initial design called for 100% outside air units with entering design conditions at 91.2°F db / 81.6°F wb and leaving cooling coil air temperatures at 54°F db / 53.9°F wb. The leaving cooling coil air would then be supplied to VAV boxes that used hot water re-heat to lower the %RH of the cooled air. By using HPT's Wrap-Around heat pipes, neutral air was achieved and sent directly to indoor air handlers that supplied the entire hospital. The need for hot water re-heat will be avoided and close to 1000 tons of cooling capacity will be reduced. The initial estimated energy costs are expected to be 40% less than the energy required by a system that is installed without Wrap-Around heat pipes.
