Finding the perfect mix of glycol and water in a hydronic system doesn’t have to be hard. Guest presenter John Panasewicz will discuss the best ways to specify and maintain water-glycol blends in boilers, chillers and other heat transfer applications. This pre-heating-season webinar will clear up the confusing aspects of antifreeze for designers and installers.

→ How do you know what percentage of glycol is best for your project?
→ What is the best way to maintain system fluid?
→ What is the difference between freeze and burst?
→ How can recovered glycol be reused?
→ How do air and dirt separation affect system fluids?

John was a founding member of the ASTM D15.30 Subcommittee on Heat Transfer Fluids and will provide both technical and practical insights on this topic. He is the Director of Technology at G2 Solutions in Denver, Colorado.

Air-to-water and water-to-water heat pumps are often equipped with refrigerant reversing valves, allowing them to function as chillers. Small-scale chilled water cooling systems can be configured for various heating/cooling loads, client expectations, and budgets. When properly designed and installed, these systems provide several advantages over competing cooling methods. However, critical details must be accounted for Read more

Air-to-water and water-to-water heat pumps are often equipped with refrigerant reversing valves, allowing them to function as chillers. Small-scale chilled water cooling systems can be configured for various heating/cooling loads, client expectations, and budgets. When properly designed and installed, these systems provide several advantages over competing cooling methods. However, critical details must be accounted for in order to avoid problems and maintain system performance. John Siegenthaler, P.E., will cover all these topics and more in this 90-minute webinar.

Topics of discussion:

  • Is it necessary to insulate PEX piping when distributing chilled fluids?
  • Is there more than one way to zone chilled water cooling?
  • Can a heat pump provide both cooling and domestic hot water during the summer?
  • What approach can be used to provide multi-zone heating along with single-zone cooling?

Siegenthaler is a seasoned industry leader and passionate teacher, eager to share his over 40 years of 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.

What’s next?
The Evolution of Hydronic Balancing
Thursday, April 25
12:00 – 1:00 p.m. CDT

Technical Content Level:  Novice

There are many tools designers, installers and balancing contractors can use to properly balance a hydronic system. These include a range of balancing valves, instruments to read differential pressure and flow rate, and software that simulates flows in complex piping systems. The evolution of balancing valve technology in the last decade gives designers and installers many choices to best match the components with their project goals.

Max Rohr will walk attendees through a variety of valve options from simple, manually adjusted devices, to state-of-the-art, pressure independent control valves (PICV).

You’ll learn:

→ Balancing valve fundamentals
→ How to apply different valve styles to meet project/system goals?
→ What steps are required to properly commission a system?
→ Protection and maintenance of balancing valves

Max is the Caleffi Director of Education and Technical Marketing. He has 20+ years of work experience in installation, distribution, manufacturers’ representation and manufacturing roles. He is a self-described “energy nerd.”
