  • June 21, 2018 - Demystifying Smart Pumps+

    Demystifying Smart Pumps
    Thursday,  June 21
    12 noon CDT

    With manufacturers of smart pumps increasing their offering of ECM pumps in the North America market, how should these pumps be applied and controlled in various types of hydronic and domestic water systems?  Matt Baker, sales associate for our manufacturers' representative TM Sales, joins the series to shed light on the intriguing importance of these modern day pumps.

    You'll learn:

    → What makes a “smart pump” smart? (Hint: it’s not magic, it’s math!)
    → What are the "smart" control modes and how do they work?
    → Which control mode should be used for different types of applications?
    → Are there applications where a smart pump is not the best solution?
    → Do smart pumps require additional maintenance or service, compared to a constant speed pump?
    → Smart pumps cost more. Do they save money in the long run?

    Having nearly 20 years’ of industry experience and providing 2000+ hours of ECM – a.k.a. “smart” pump - training, Matt is looking forward to his cameo appearance on the popular webinar series. He’s worked with Grundfos Pumps Corporation and various manufacturers’ representatives in the hydronic and plumbing industry. Today he pounds the pavement for TM Sales Inc. (Arvada, Colo.), sharing his knowledge and enthusiasm on a daily basis.

  • July 26, 2018 - Heat Transfer in Hydronic Systems+

    Heat Transfer in Hydronic Systems
    Thursday, July 26
    12 noon CDT

    A solid understanding of heat transfer is essential for all hydronic system professionals. It guides both design and troubleshooting. John Siegenthaler, P.E., a favorite guest speaker to the webinar series, will discuss specific examples of heat transfer within the context of hydronic heating and cooling. He'll provide guidance on the fundamental relationship between heat transfer rate, flow rate and temperature change. John will discuss how to modify existing systems for low temperature operation, heat exchanger performance and how to avoid common heat transfer “bottlenecks.”

    You'll learn: 

    → What is the advantage of operating a hydronic heating system with a high ∆T between supply and return?
    → Does doubling the flow rate through a hydronic system double its heat output?
    → Does the ∆T of a hydronic distribution system “want to” remain constant?
    → What happens to heat output when outdoor reset control of water temperature is combined with constrained ∆T?
    → How does flow direction through a heat exchanger affect its performance?
    → What are design techniques for keeping heat exchangers free of scale and debris?
    → What happens to heat transfer rates when flows are laminar versus turbulent?

    A seasoned industry leader, passionate teacher and a favorite guest speaker to the webinar series, 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 Plumbing and Mechanical, PM Engineer and HPAC magazines.

  • August 23, 2018 - Safety Devices for Hydronic and Plumbing Systems+

    Safety Devices for Hydronic and Plumbing Systems
    Thursday, Aug. 23
    12 noon CDT

    Safety in hydronic and plumbing systems is often assumed, but how is that accomplished? Beginning with a design that results in a safe and efficient system installation is a starting point, but long-lasting protection does not end there. Bob "Hot Rod" Rohr, our training and education manager, will share tips of the trade to safeguard your system.

    You'll learn: 

    → What devices are required to have a code compliant system?
    → Which devices require third party certification? Why?
    → What sizing steps are required for the various safety devices?
    → Is yearly recertification required?
    → Do safety devices need to comply with low lead requirements?

    A familiar and favorite speaker to the webinar series, Hot Rod is sure to delight the audience with his expertise and quick wit. Currently our technical training manager, he travels from sea-to-sea, sharing his 30+ years' of experience as a plumbing, radiant heat and renewable energy contractor. A regular contributor for several industry publications, Hot Rod puts his rubber-to-the-road experiences to pen.
