Coffee with Caleffi Technical Training Webinar
  • April 27, 2017 - Maintaining High Fluid Quality in Modern Hydronic Systems (Part 2)+

    Maintaining High Fluid Quality in Modern Hydronic Systems (Part 2) 
    Thursday,  April 27
    12 noon CDT

    Fluid problems can cause loss of efficiency, comfort fall-off and/or premature equipment failure. This webinar picks up where Part 1 left off (refer to:  Maintaining High Fluid Quality, February 2017). Bob "Hot Rod" Rohr, our training and education manager, will examine maintaining glycol quality in hydronic systems, preventing sediment formation in any hydronic system and discuss measurement instruments to keep your system in tip-top condition.  You'll learn:

    - Is municipally treated water good enough for my system? 
    - What can cause glycol to degrade over time? 
    - Is using only the minimum glycol needed for freeze protection the only factor to consider? 
    - Why is the TDS reading of a glycol fluid a meaningless value? 
    - Does a pH value within the glycol manufacturer’s acceptable range ensure freeze protection? 
    - Low hardness but high TDS – is my fill water good? 
    - My system water is slightly grey – I’m good right? 
    - What are some potential mistakes in measuring pH, TDS, hardness or freeze point? 

    For over 30 years, “Hot Rod” has installed plumbing, radiant heat and renewable energy jobs.  As a regular contributor for several industry publications, he puts his rubber-to-the-road experiences to pen.  A familiar and favorite speaker to the webinar series, he is sure to delight the audience with his expertise and quick wit.

  • May 25, 2017 - High/Low Mixing Valves For Domestic Hot Water Applications+

    High/Low Mixing Valves For Domestic Hot Water Applications
    Thursday,  May 25
    12 noon CDT

    Institutional and commercial domestic hot water applications such as hotels, hospitals and schools as well as large residential homes demand system delivery of tempered water for a broad range of flows.  Demand can range, for example, from a minimum of 1 to 2 GPM when one fixture is being used to up to 50 or more GPM when multiple fixtures, or high-flow fixtures, are consuming water simultaneously.   For these applications, a common solution is a thermostatic mixing valve assembly that is referred to as a high/low mixing valve.  

    Kevin Freidt, director of product management and technical support, and Cody Mack, our ace applications engineer, join forces to discuss how you can effectively and efficiently manage these broad range of flows for your DHW application during this one-hour webinar.  You'll learn:

    → What is a high/low thermostatic mixing valve?
    → How does it differ from a typical thermostatic mixing valve?
    → How do they work?
    → When do I need to use a high/low?
    → Does Caleffi offer a solution?
    → Is a high/low mixing valve difficult to install and commission?

    Kevin Freidt is the intellect behind sizing up the best product offerings in a moving target market and manages an exceptional tech support team.  Kevin has 30+ years’ of experience in the commercial HVAC industry.  You'll thoroughly appreciate his academic passion and concise content delivery.  Cody Mack applies his 10 years' of field support experience on a daily basis to our tech support team.  He's heard about it, troubleshot and solved real-time field perplexities.  Now assisting in product design, Cody has found another career sweet spot.

    → Do I need primary/secondary?
    → Is there a "gold standard" to follow for system connections?
    → Where is the most effective placement of separators?
    → Is magnetic protection always required? When is magnetic separation most needed?
    → Are fluid quality and system fluid volume related?
    → When does buffering make sense?
    → How do I account for multiple distribution temperatures?
    → Should the pressure reducing valve be isolated?
    → How do I protect from sustained flue-gas condensation?
    → Ahem. Don't forget the codes!
