First Joint CRC in Asia

A combined Chapters Regional Conference being held this fall is serving as a test case for possible future joint conferences.

Belimo: Dynamic Balancing

This free presentation by Belimo September 15 will examine the performance impact of improper valve sizing, unstable system pressures and balancing device selection. We will also examine the physical effects of valve authority and coil degradation in hydronic systems. Energy and performance models make a few faulty assumptions about hydronic performance. By understanding these assumptions, we can have a better view of actual performance. Learn More or Register >>

Our ability to shape tomorrow is borne out of our willingness to adapt today, according to Tim Wentz, P.E., HBDP, ASHRAE’s president for 2016–2017. That fundamental truth is the driving force behind his theme: “Adapt Today to Shape Tomorrow.” Other articles in this issue include ASHRAE/NEMA’s new smart grid standard and using CO2 in industrial refrigeration.
