In this regard, how do you calculate gpm through a chiller?

Multiply the fluid's horsepower by 3960. If the **chiller** works at 25 horsepower: 25 x 3960 = 99,000. Multiply your answer by the pump's efficiency. If the pump works at 80 percent efficiency: 99,000 x 0.80 = 79,200.

**formula**to find

**GPM**is 60 divided by the seconds it takes to fill a one gallon container (60 / seconds =

**GPM**). Example: The one gallon container fills in 5 seconds. 60 / 5 = 12

**GPM**. (60 divided by 5 equals 12

**gallons per minute**.)

Regarding this, how do you calculate chilled water flow rate?

**Chilled Water Systems**

- Total Heat Removed. The total heat removed by an air condition chilled-water system can be calculated. h = 500 q dt (1) where.
- Evaporator Flow Rate. The evaporator water flow rate can be calculated. q
_{e}= h_{tons}24 / dt (2) where. - Condenser Flow Rate. The condenser water flow rate: q
_{c}= h_{tons}30 / dt (3) where.
