Earn 8 PDH hours toward continuing education requirements
The HVAC industry is in a constant state of evolution – it can be challenging to keep pace with the changes.
To help engineers stay abreast of new developments, Maddock Industries is partnering with the Mestek Boiler Group, parent company of RBI, to host a free, one-day seminar on July 20, 2023. The seminar will dive deep into cutting-edge boiler technologies and explore how they relate to boiler room operation.
Participants will earn 8 PDH hours upon completion.
Modern Boiler Technology
John Wrobel, director of training and development for the Mestek Boiler Group, will present an in-depth overview of the latest developments in boiler technology. Participants will learn about the factors that impact boiler room operation – including combustion, hydraulic separation, venting, and dirt and air separation – and leave with a greater understanding of how to select the best boilers for specific applications.
Topics will include:
Boiler and Burner
- Combustion – fuel / air coupled burners
- The combustion triangle
- Turndown & flue gas dewpoint
- Combustion condensate – effects
- Low mass watertube
- High mass firetube
- Types: stainless steel, copper, cupronickel & cast iron
- Air elimination, dirt separation & water quality
- Sizing and regulator locations
Designing the Boiler System
Professional trainer and the owner of Intermountain Hydronic Specialties, Joe Stagg, will teach participants how to design boiler systems that maximize efficiency and minimize operational difficulties and costs.
Topics will include:
- Temperature rise
- Flow rates
- Inlet temperatures
System Flow Control
- 3-way valve control
- 2-way valve control
- Pressure independent valve control
Piping the Boiler
- Variable primary piping
- Primary / secondary piping
- Boiler pump control
Piping the System
- Reduced flow rates
- Energy savings calculations
- Controlling the system pumps
Boiler Short Cycle Prevention
- Boiler firing sequence
- Net efficiencies
- High-efficiency boiler system design
To learn more about the latest in boiler technology and system design, join Maddock Industries and the Mestek Boiler Group from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. July 20 at the Ivy Hotel in Chicago. Food and beverages will be provided.
