  • Sept. 26, 2019 - Domestic Hot Water Recirculation in High-Rise Buildings+

    Domestic Hot Water Recirculation in High-Rise Buildings 
    Thursday, Sept. 26, 2019
    12 noon - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Recirculating domestic hot water in high rise buildings poses challenges that do not exist in lower profile buildings. Multiple floors contribute to high static head pressures which affect piping design and product selection. High-rise buildings must be "zoned" by groups of floors which typically means using multiple pressure reducing valves, circulators and sometimes heat exchangers. It gets complicated fast with varied design approaches. Our guest speaker, Claudio Ardizzoia, Caleffi Global Headquarters Lead Product Manager, will share his 30+ years of expertise and experience in plumbing system and product design. He will discuss the challenges related to high-rise DHW recirculation, review solutions for proven design concepts and provide guidelines for proper product selection.

    You'll learn:
    → How does the static pressure in a high-rise building affect DHW recirculation design?
    → Is it possible to have one large recirculation loop or does it have to be divided into zones?
    → Where is the water heater (or water heaters) located in a high-rise?
    → Do I need to put pressure reducing valve in the recirculation piping?
    → How do I balance the recirculation risers in high-rise applications?
    → What about using master point-of-distribution mixing valves? Do I need one large valve or multiple smaller valves?

    Claudio and our North American Training Managers have combined over 150 years' of experience in the industry. We are passionate about our focus on "Excellence in Education" and the time we spend with customers.

  • Oct. 24, 2019 - Applying Air-to-Water Heat Pumps in Hydronic Systems+

    Applying Air-to-Water Heat Pumps in Hydronic Systems
    Thursday, Oct. 24
    12 noon - 1:00 p.m. CDT

    Hydronic heating and cooling distribution systems can be supplied from a variety of heat pumps. One specific type is called an air-to-water heat pump. In 2016 there were over two million air-to-water heat pumps installed worldwide, but only a small portion of those were installed in North America. That statistic is expected to change significantly during 2020 and beyond. Air-to-water heat pumps can now challenge geothermal heat pumps based on their return on investment. They are an ideal match for modern hydronic distribution systems.  If you’re involved with modern hydronics technology, this category of heat pump represents a growing market opportunity.

    A favorite to the webinar series, John Siegenthaler, P.E. will present information on how these heat pumps are installed and how they perform in such applications.

    You'll learn:
    → Can an air-to-water heat pump perform as well as a geothermal heat pump?
    → What are the key factors that allow air-to-water heat pumps to perform well?
    → Can you name at least six companies that now offer air-to-water heat pumps in North America?
    → What water temperature range is within the capability of an air-to-water heat pump?
    → Is a buffer tank always necessary with an air-to-water heat pump?
    → What is the capacity modulation range of a typical “inverter” air-to-water heat pump?
    → Can an air-to-water heat pump provide domestic hot water as well as space heating and cooling?

    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.

  • Nov. 21, 2019 - What to Know for Melting Snow: Hydronic SIM Best Practices+

    What to Know for Melting Snow: Hydronic SIM Best Practices
    Thursday, Nov. 21, 2019
    12 noon - 1:00 p.m. CST

    Ready or not, here comes the snow and ice season. Is your hydronic snow and ice melting (SIM) system ready-to-go? Do you have a design in mind, but need assistance with the final details? Returning to the webinar series, Max Rohr will dig into hydronic SIM systems, chip away at important design considerations and challenge you with questions to ask yourself when selecting controls.

    You'll learn:
    → How do I size a SIM system? What resources are available?
    → What is the SIM project objective: safety or convenience?
    → Should you use insulation under a SIM slab?
    → How do I keep my SIM system in top-notch shape?

    Max is a graduate of the University of Utah. He currently serves as the REHAU Academy Manager (Leesburg, Va.). Max is a self-described hydronics and thermostat nerd. He has worked in the hydronics and solar industries for 20 years (or however many years Hot Rod is willing to admit to the Division of Child Labor) in the installation, sales and manufacturing sectors.
