Closed loop systems - open tower/heat exchanger or fluid cooler – which is best for your application?

Broadcast Live November 16, 2017 at 2 p.m. EDT
Presented by BAC

Description:

In this Webinar, we'll review how closed loop cooling systems deliver many benefits compared to traditional open loop systems, such as reduced fouling, less risk of fluid contamination, and increased system reliability and uptime. Several methods can be used to "close the loop", including the use of an open circuit cooling tower coupled with a plate & frame heat exchanger or the use of a closed circuit cooling tower, also called a fluid cooler. The Webinar will contrast maintenance and operational implications between these alternatives along with a comparison of total installed costs, including equipment, material, and labor. The results will help guide system designers and operators to make the best heat rejection choice for their next project.

Stephanie H. Taylor MD, M Architecture, CIC, FRSPH(UK), MCABE
Dr. Stephanie Taylor graduated with honors from Harvard Medical School, Boston, MA in 1984, following which she practiced clinical medicine in pediatric oncology and did academic research in cellular growth mechanisms for over 20 years. During this time, she became very concerned about the new infections that many hospital patients contracted while they were being treated for unrelated issues. Determined to better understand the interaction between patient outcomes and the hospital built environment, she obtained her Master’s Degree in Architecture from Norwich University in her home state of Vermont.

After several years working in a healthcare facility architectural design firm, she founded Taylor Healthcare Consulting, Inc. to focus on building design and operation elements that impact patient healing. Now an internationally recognized consultant, Dr. Taylor works with architects, engineers, microbiologists and regulatory committees to design and manage hospitals and other commercial buildings to optimize patient and occupant health.

Dr. Taylor is involved in cutting edge research which expands the understanding of the impact of the built environment and indoor air quality on acute and chronic diseases, and on cognitive and physical performance. She is very excited to share her findings with you!

Why Submetering is Crucial for Reducing Energy Consumption and Cost

Broadcast Live June 13, 2017 at 2 p.m. EDT 
Presented by FLEXIM
http://www.flexim.com
 

Summary

Today the reduction of energy and operational costs is one of the top priorities of building owners. Not only does this drive the need for a more efficient and accurate BTU metering, but also creates more sustainable buildings. Since the early 1980s ultrasonic clamp-on flow meters have been utilized for BTU metering and submetering. Some advantages of FLEXIM clamp-on meters are: retrofit capability no shutdown, all-in-one BTU meter, low flow sensitivity for measuring off peak flows, and 1% accuracy. In this presentation we will cover clamp-on BTU metering concepts, attributes, accuracy, and provide case study examples.

PDH/CEU certificate: FLEXIM will issue a signed company certificate of your personal attendance after viewing the presentation. The presentation is not registered with any state, so check with your state’s continuing education requirements to ensure a credit may be applied with this webinar.

Speaker:

Izzy Rivera has been involved with the development of ultrasonic flow measurement for 35 years. He is a co-founder of FLEXIM AMERICAS a subsidiary of FLEXIM GmbH, a Berlin based company that specializes in the manufacturer of flow measurement and process analytical instruments. Izzy was involved in the development of the first fully integrated ultrasonic BTU meter.

Mitigating Risk of Legionella Bacteria in Building Water Systems

Broadcast Live January 10, 2017 at 2 p.m. ET 
Presented by EVAPCO, Baltimore Aircoil Company, and SPX Cooling Technologies
 

Summary

This webinar will provide important information on:

  • The increasing threat of water borne illnesses and impact on building owners
  • Lessons learned from recent legionella outbreaks
  • The public water system and how it can affect building owners
  • Seven steps of Legionella Risk Mitigation
  • Three steps of Risk Mitigation that your actions will directly impact 

You have most likely heard about recent outbreaks of Legionnaire's Disease in the press.  Unfortunately, due to the typically short news cycle and the use of social media to disseminate the news, there is seldom sufficient time to provide the depth of technical information required for engineers and building owners to fully understand this important subject. 

This presentation will provide an executive summary detailing some of the recent outbreaks reported in the media, along with information you can use to mitigate the risk.  Experts in the field agree on the seven steps for mitigating the risk of Legionella bacteria in building water systems.  The focus of this presentation will be on the three steps of mitigation which are commonly within the control of design engineers and building owners.

Hosted by Troy Reineck
