## LMTD of coil given by-pass factor Formula

Logarithmic mean temperature difference = (Final Temperature-Initial Temperature)/ln(1/By pass factor)
ΔTm = (Tf-Ti)/ln(1/BPF)

## What is By-pass factor?

The inability of a coil to cool or heat the air to its temperature is indicated by a factor called the by-pass factor (BPF) or Coil Bypass Factor. This inability is due to the coil inefficiency and some amount of air just bypassing the coil without getting affected by it. A coil with low BPF has better performance. BPF can also be defined as the ratio of air that is unaffected by the coil to the total quantity of air passing over the coil.
