What are the latest methods and materials available to creative hydronic heating designers? How can you heat a 23,000-sq.-ft. building using 3/4-inch and 1-inch distribution piping? How do systems of multiple modulating boilers differ from a standard multiple boiler system? Where can you apply the recently released small variable speed circulators? How can a wide assortment of heating loads be coordinated by and supplied from a single hydronic system?
John Siegenthaler, P.E., a well-known teacher, writer, software developer and Plumbing & Mechanical columnist, will be answering these questions and more at “Modern Engineering Concepts for Hydronic Heating Design,” a day-long seminar held in July in six cities located throughout the country.
“The seminar is geared for those who know the basic applications for hydronic heating, but want to delve into more advanced design concepts and details,” Siegenthaler says.
Consulting engineers, in particular, are encouraged to attend to see the very latest approaches in hydronic heating for both custom residential and commercial buildings. However, the new seminar is also designed for experienced hydronic system designers, facilities engineers, and design/build professionals who work with hydronic heating systems.
Topics to be covered include the following:
- Hydronic distribution system options.
- Water temperature control.
- Small variable speed circulators.
- Compact boilers.
- Commercial radiant floor heating.
- Multi-load/multi-temperature systems.
The seminar is offered by BNP Media, publishers of more than 30 trade magazines, including Plumbing & Mechanical, Supply House Times and PM Engineer.
Siegenthaler's hydronics seminars currently are scheduled for the following dates and cities:
- July 12 - Chicago/Rosemont, Ill.
July 14 - Danbury, CT
July 16 - Marlborough, Mass.
July 26 - Reno, Nev.
July 28 - Salt Lake City, Utah
July 30 - Denver
