Zoning Made Easy – Part 1:
Five Rules of Thumb for the Non-Engineer

Date: Thursday, May 21, 2020 2-3 p.m. ET

Most residential and light commercial zoning jobs don’t require an engineering degree. You just need to have a good basic grasp of what’s going on in the system.

Join Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand, to learn basic “Rules of Thumb” that will take the guesswork out of simple zoning applications. Using these “Rules of Thumb,” the non-engineer can easily determine the required pipe sizes, pumps and baseboard without relying on complicated calculations. These simple tricks of the trade will help you figure out your next zoning job in no time at all.

Attendees of Part 1 of this two-part webinar will learn five “Rules of Thumb” that will allow them to quickly determine the systems required flow rate, how to size pipe based on maximum flows and how to understand heat carrying capacity of pipes. Examples on how to apply these rules will be provided.

During this one-hour webinar, Xylem will:

  • Review basic terms used in hydronic systems
  • Demonstrate how to calculate the required system flow rate
  • Outline the maximum flow rate for a given pipe size
  • Discuss how much heat a pipe will carry
  • Illustrate maximum baseboard length for a given loop

Modern Pump Selection

Date: Wednesday, May 27, 2020 10–11 a.m. ET

In response to industry demand for the most efficient pump selection, Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand developed a pump selection criteria called Part Load Efficiency Value (PLEV) to assist in selecting pumps that maximize efficiencies while reducing energy costs.

PLEV is a calculation that represents the efficiency of a centrifugal pump at partial flow rates and can be used to gauge true pump performance within a hydronic system.

In this webinar, Kyle DelPiano of Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand will explain how PLEV works, how to use the calculation based on application and the benefits it provides.

Zoning Made Easy – Part 2:
More Rules of Thumb for the Non-Engineer

Date: Thursday, May 28, 2020 2-3 p.m. ET

Most residential and light commercial zoning jobs don’t require an engineering degree. You just need to have a good basic grasp of what’s going on in the system.

Join Bell & Gossett, a Xylem brand, to learn basic “Rules of Thumb” that will take the guesswork out of simple zoning applications. Using these “Rules of Thumb,” the non-engineer can easily determine the required pipe sizes, pumps and baseboard without relying on complicated calculations. These simple tricks of the trade will help you figure out your next zoning job in no time at all.

Attendees of Part 2 of this two-part webinar will learn four “Rules of Thumb” that will allow them to quickly select the correct pipe size for shared flow, understand pump head and select a circulator for a simple system. Examples on how to apply these rules will be provided.

During this one-hour webinar, Xylem will:

  • Outline shared piping sizes
  • Discuss pump head
  • Illustrate the difference between zoning with valves or circulators
  • Show how to easily select the correct circulator
