Test method for measuring efficiency and pressure loss of drain water heat recovery units
This Standard specifies requirements for measuring the heat recovery efficiency and pressure loss for
vertically installed, falling-film drain water heat recovery (DWHR) units.
This Standard applies to DWHR units
a) of any diameter and length; and
b) with a configuration where potable water and drain water flow rate is equal;
In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to
