Heat Exchangers in Hydronic & Plumbing Systems

Thursday, July 29, 2021
12 noon-1:30 p.m. CDT


Heat exchangers are essential components in many hydronic and plumbing applications.  A favorite to the webinar series, John Siegenthaler, P.E., will describe different categories of heat exchangers, discuss how to assess their performance, detail their installation, present several unique applications and provide a complimentary resource for our audience.

You'll learn:
→ What is meant by the terms “approach temperature”, “thermal length” and LMTD in the context of heat exchangers?
→ Which flow configuration produces maximum heat transfer rate: concurrent flow, or counterflow?
→ Should heat exchangers made of 316 stainless steel be used in pool heating applications?
→ Why do internal coil heat exchanger require much larger surface area for a given rate of heat transfer compared to brazed plate heat exchangers?
→ Where can additional resources be found?

A seasoned industry leader and passionate teacher, John is eager to share his over 40 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.
