ASHRAE Thailand Chapter's  Awards  


2008 ASHRAE Technology Award - Apichit Lumlertpongpana - First Place
 

            Apichit Lumlertpongpana, managing director, and
      Wichai Rungruangprug, I.T.C., Bangkok , receive
      first place in the new industrial facilities or processes
      category for his design of Charoen Pokphan Foods
      Public Co., Chokchai , Thailand .

 

      
       The design focused on a refrigeration system and low-temperature air conditioning for a poultry slaughter and processing plant, with a slaughter capacity of 360,000 birds per day. By installing smaller compressors, smaller suction pipes and insulation material, the system saves some $200,000 of the first cost of equipment and material. The estimated annual energy savings is nearly $300,000 a year, with an estimated total reduction of carbon dioxide emissions equal to 1,900 metric tons per year. Water usage was reduced by 91.3 percent.

2004 Fellow ASHRAE - Asso. Prof. Tawee Vechaputti 

               Tawee Vechaphutti is associate professor, mechanical
    engineering department, faculty of engineering, Chulalongkorn
    University, Thailand. Considered a leading researcher, his
    projects have included thermal comfort, energy conservation 
    in buildings and overall thermal transfer valvue (OTTV) of
    buildings in Thailand. His OTTV study, which resulted in
    guidelines for architects to design buildings with less cooling
    loads, was the first of its kind in Thailand. 

       Another project on thermal comfort is widely used as a reference for engineers. Vechaphutti investigated the thermal comfort requirements for subjects in hot and humid conditions in office buildings. He determined that the comfort temperatures for Thai men and women are 73.7°F (23.2°C). He also designed the HVAC system for the largest shopping center in Thailand and Southeast Asia, which included a low kilowatt tons of refrigeration chiller, the first used in the country. He served as chair of a committee that drafted the air-conditioning section of the government's energy policy.
