    → What are examples of fluid hazards to guard against?
    → What are common types of BFPs?
    → What can cause back siphoning?  Back pressure? 
    → How are BFPs constructed?  Maintained?
    → What standards apply to BFPs?  Codes?
    → What do inspectors take into consideration?
    → What common mistakes occur when applying BFPs?

  • February 21, 2019 - Fundamentals of Heat Metering in Hydronic Systems+

    Fundamentals of Heat Metering in Hydronic Systems
    Thursday, Feb. 21
    12 noon - 1 p.m. CST

    Although relatively new to North America, heat metering has many practical applications including verifying if a heating (or cooling) source is producing its expected thermal output and apportioning energy costs to multiple customers served by a central system based on individual consumption. With the recently enacted ASTM standard for Heat Metering, the stage has been set for heat metering to become increasingly used for these and other purposes in North America.

    John Siegenthaler, P.E., joins the webinar series to elaborate on the benefits of heat metering in hydronic systems including technical concepts and illustrations of practical applications You'll learn:

    → Does antifreeze fluid passing through a heat meter affect its ability to accurately measure heat flow?
    → Can the same heat meter be used to measure heating energy and cooling energy delivery?
    → What’s the best way to change the length of a temperature sensor cable on a heat meter?
    → How many conductors are necessary to connect multiple CONTECA heat meters together?

    A seasoned industry leader and passionate teacher, John shares his over 35 years’ experience in the understanding and proper application of water-based engineering principles with our audience. He is the principal of Appropriate Designs and a regular contributor to industry publications.
