Sensorless and Remote Sensor Pumping for Commercial Buildings

Webinar Description: 

With so many centrifugal pumps being installed with Variable Frequency Drives (VFDs) these days, methods to reduce costs and simplify installations have become a major topic in today's market. Pump drives today can be supplied with built-in pump controls than can now control the speed of a pump without a sensor feedback signal. The term "sensorless" has been used lately, meaning the pump can be set up to maintain a set-point without the added expense of installing a pressure sensor. This webcast will discuss the basic concept of what is known as "sensorless" control and look at the pros and cons of installing pumps with and without pressure sensors. The focused application in this webcast will be a secondary HVAC closed loop pumping system.

Entrematic HVLS Fans: Benefits & Planning Strategies

Webinar Description: 

In this webinar, Entrematic Fans Director of Engineering Richard Hoofard will teach you everything you need to know about HVLS (high volume, low speed) fans and why they are increasingly the choice of engineers and architects alike when planning the HVAC and environmental components of a project. The webinar will begin with an overview of the benefits of HVLS fans and why they are a superior option to other types of airflow equipment (floor fans, retail-bought fans, etc.) for industrial and commercial applications. We will then discuss the key considerations you should be taking into account when planning for and specifying HVLS fans. Topics covered will include: your environmental objectives (human comfort, reduced spoilage, cost reduction, etc); structural considerations and their impact on fan placement; HVLS fan control options and BMS integration.

Grundfos-How to Read a Pump Curve-Variable Speed (Series 2.0)

Webinar Description: 

This is the second in a two part webinar series on interpretation and use of the pump curve for variable speed pumping. It builds on the fundamental knowledge of the single speed pump curve that was addressed in part one. Today we will explore which parts of the curve apply in identical ways to both fixed and variable speed operation, and also the important differences in their use. This knowledge will enable you to make informed decisions when selecting and specifying variable speed pumps along with their drivers and controls, in order to optimize performance and reduce power consumption.

Uponor - Which comes first: Comfort vs. efficiency?

People operate spaces based on how they feel, not on energy models. The same science used by engineers when applied to define building problems is not applied to integrate the human factor. The success of this strategy is a miserably low satisfaction rate with the built environment. If society honestly desires energy efficiency from architecture, then it should not be the exclusive goal, but rather the outcome from successfully achieving the desired indoor climate.

This program brings together the building and health sciences demonstrating online thermal comfort tools for studying humans and enclosures for compliance with ASHRAE Standard 55 Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy. The presentation will include live, web-based software tools to identify thermal discomfort risks and how to solve them with radiant-based solutions.

A certificate of completion will also be available for download at the end of the webinar.

Grundfos-How to Read a Pump Curve-Fixed Speed (Part 1)

Webinar Description: 

In this, the first of a two-part webinar series on interpretation and use of the pump curve, we will explore fixed speed pumping. The pump performance curve - the most fundamental of all centrifugal pump documents – is packed with information that can be used as an aid in selection and specification of the right equipment. This webinar will teach you to read the pump curve, to know what information is there, and understand how it is formatted. Additionally, we will learn how to interpret the graphically provided information and what it means. Finally, you will learn how to use the pump curve to make decisions on the choice of pump and driver sizing, power consumption strategies, and many others. Part two of this series will cover the same general topics as they are applied to variable speed pumping.

Choosing The Right Filtration System Will Help Maximize Your Cooling Tower Efficiencies

Abstract

Water from cooling towers attracts and absorbs airborne contaminants on a continuous basis. Typically, 85% of suspended solids in cooling water and hot water loops are smaller than 5 microns. Scientific studies have shown that these fine particles (5 microns and less) are the adherent contaminants fouling the water loop and cooling system.

Manufacturing facilities are routinely reviewing their system's water quality and treatment levels to prevent early and rapid corrosion, scale and biological growth; leading to unplanned facility maintenance and/or shutdown. Listen to our HVAC cooling expert as he explores how you can improve your cooling efficiencies by choosing the right filtration system.

Key Learning Objectives

  • Understand the relationship between suspended solids and particle size, along with the negative impact they have on your process, cooling tower, water loops, and chillers.
  • Learn about key challenges faced by HVAC facility managers and how filtration plays a crucial part of the solution.
  • Understand the use of various filtration technologies and their role within the filtration process.
  • Learn about our application checklist that has helped customers in selecting the right filtration solution.
  • Learn how a medical center & international airport solved their cooling tower operational concerns with a high efficiency microsand filtration system.

Attendees Will Receive

In return for attending the live webinar each attendee will be receiving an opportunity to request a *free laser particle distribution analysis and a scheduled consultation with an applications engineer to review the results (valued at $200). The submittal process will be provided at the end of the webinar.

A certificate of completion will also be available for download at the end of the webinar.

*Subject to review and approval by a Vortisand® application engineer

High Efficiency Boiler Exhaust Venting

Description:
While boiler and hot water units have drastically changed to increase efficiency, design of exhaust venting systems, overall, has not followed suit. Many old venting principles and general guidelines for sizing and materials have been utilized and coupled with improper design, this has resulted in unreliable and inefficient operation of these high performance appliances. Our goal with this presentation is to point out key operational characteristics of these appliances and how they related to exhaust system design. We will discuss several design and operational scenarios for individually vented units as well as common venting.
