A specific degree of heat intensity. There are three temperature designations associated with psychrometrics:
1. Dry Bulb (DB) – The air temperature as measured by a standard thermometer.
2. Wet Bulb (WB) – The air temperature measured by a thermometer with its reservoir bulb wrapped in a moistened cloth wick and exposed to an air stream moving at a velocity of 1,000 feet per minute.
3. Dewpoint temperature (DP) – Also called Saturation Temperature is the temperature at which condensation of moisture begins (air is holding 100% of the moisture it can) when the air is cooled, measured in °F.
