BIM/CAD Trends for PEX Piping Systems

Abstract:
For those who design in BIM/CAD, manufacturer-provided content is widely viewed as being superior to generic, out-of-the box content when planning and designing a project. The data embedded within manufacturer-provided content is unique to the characteristics of the product, providing engineers with the ability to visualize a system's installation or a model's performance within a building before construction begins. When designing with PEX, it is especially important to have access to manufacturer-provided content to ensure the system takes advantage of the unique features of the product, such as its flexibility, and also takes into consideration the challenges, such as expansion and contraction of the pipe. In this session, attendees will learn about the importance of PEX manufacturer-provided content as well as the trends in BIM/CAD for commercial PEX piping systems.

The New Landscape of Energy Efficiency: What Utilities Are Doing to Increase the Adoption of Energy-efficient HVAC Systems

As our population grows and the grid becomes overtaxed, utility companies are challenged with meeting energy reduction mandates. That challenge gets passed on to the end user – whether commercial or residential. Between the two are HVAC professionals, who must help both the utilities and the end users navigate a complicated, ever-changing world of incentives, restrictions and opportunities.

This webinar sheds light on that world. Panelists will explore the ins and outs of how energy reduction mandates and energy efficiency innovations affect the utility companies and everyone who’s connected to them.

The panelists will also look at HVAC manufacturers’ response – what they’re doing to help end users, and what they’re doing to help the utility companies.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Learn that utilities must respond to energy reduction mandates.
  2. Understand how utility incentive programs work, and what challenges they introduce for HVAC professionals.
  3. Learn the difference between how utilities treat the commercial and residential channels.
  4. Understand how manufacturers are supporting utilities in energy reduction efforts.

To Trim or Not To Trim? – That is the Question!

Abstract:
There are lots of courses available on how to size a centrifugal pump. In the past the only solution in many cases was to trim the impeller to make it work properly or to close a valve to get the right flow.  Now with the use of Variable Speed Drives we have found new ways of doing things.  Do I still need to trim the impeller?  This course will answer that question. 

Participants will learn and/or understand:

  • Reading and Interpreting the pump curve – Explain what the information means
  • Understanding the effect of trimming an impeller on the pump performance curve
  • Evaluating and using the pump efficiency curves to make pump decisions
  • Understanding the effect of trimming the impeller has on pump efficiency and power usage
  • Evaluating the use of variable speed motors on pump curves and pump efficiency

Keywords:
Application Type, Chilled Water, Commercial HVAC, Duty Point, Efficiency, End Suction, Flooded Suction, Frame Mounted, Horsepower Curve, Hydronic, Impeller, Life Cycle Cost, Performance Curve, Pump Curves, Pump Types, Single Stage, Static Head, Submersible, Suction Lift, System Curves, Trimming, Variable Flow, Variable Speed, Vertical Multi-Stage

How to Specify Radiant Heating and Cooling Systems

Radiant heating and cooling systems continue to gain popularity in North America, due largely in part to the system’s ability to deliver high-efficiency sensible capacity while providing optimum comfort. When specifying a radiant system, there are certain key elements that should be included in the construction documents (plans and specifications) to ensure the contractors have the necessary information required to meet the engineer’s and owner’s expectations.

Topics will include:

  • Manifold schedules
  • Specifications
  • Details
  • Controls
