DALLAS — Tour & Andersson has announced a new seminar in its hydronic seminar series called “Investment and Energy Saving Opportunities in Variable Flow Systems.” The seminar concentrates on effectively controlling the main areas of energy use in a hydronic system, as well as contrasting primary-secondary vs. variable primary flow system designs.

Designed specifically for HVAC consulting engineers, designers, facility managers, and installing contractors, the seminar provides a variety of practical and theoretical examples to highlight issues faced when designing, commissioning, and maintaining hydronic variable flow systems.

Subjects to be discussed during the seminar include the operating requirements, efficiencies, and hydronic interactivity of equipment like chillers and boilers; flow requirements and the controllability of devices like terminal units; control modes and sensor location for variable speed pumps; and optimizing system energy savings and controllability through differential pressure control.

In 2011, the “Investment and Energy Savings” seminar will be presented in New York City on Sept. 13 and in Boston on Nov. 10.

“We want to present a seminar of exceptional value to engineers and designers,” said Bhumika Lathia, marketing manager for Tour & Andersson North America. “We have presented this new content many times in smaller groups, and with a large test group in Washington, D.C, simply to gather comments and suggestions to validate and improve our presentation. The feedback was very positive.”

Registration for the seminar is available through the TA Hydronic College website at www.tahydroniccollege.com.
