Columbia, MD - As part of its Knowledge Learning Series, the Commercial Division hosted a "Lunch and Learn", Design and Operation of High-Efficiency Heating Water Systems: Are You
Making the Grade? on November 10th. Held at the Stanford Grill this curriculum offered insight into how properly designing and maintaining high-efficiency heating water systems will result in better system
Ultra-High Efficiency heating water systems (up to 99%) are often not operating at design efficiency after the system is turned over to the building owners. With some simple changes to system design and maintenance tasks the curriculum ensured that design efficiency will be maintained throughout the life of the building.
The curriculum also included discussion about how chillers, boilers, pumps, and various heat exchanger coils and devices are not able to work as effectively using the air-fluid mixture as they are when the system is filled with homogenous fluid for which the component calculations are made. 3.5 PDH credits were offered upon completion of this course.
