Cooling the waters of the 17-meter flume at the Coastal Research Laboratory
MetadataShow full item record
A cooling system has been developed to control the operating water temperature of the 17-Meter Flume at WHOI's Coastal Research Laboratory. The system utilizes a microprocessor-controlled refrigeration cycle to maintain temperatures ranging from 4°C absolute to 10°C above the ambient room temperature. All components are non-toxic to marine organisms and do not create low flow areas for settlement of suspended particles. This report reviews design and other engineering considerations and describes in detail the system components.
