The presentations, ‘Deaeration and Dirt Separation Techniques’ and ‘Understanding Pressurisation Design, Installation and Implementation’ highlight the importance of removing air and dirt from a heating system to maximise its performance and save energy.
As well as emphasising that maintaining high quality water in the system is paramount, the programmes outline key product types that can effectively combat air and dirt in retro-fit and new installations, for both commercial and domestic applications.
Rob Jacques, national key accounts and technical sales manager for Spirotech UK, said: “We want to ensure that Spirotech leaves no stone unturned in educating the market on the importance of treating both dirt and air within a heating system, whilst offering our expertise on the best methods and product types to achieve this.
“The CPDs do this and more, with the content containing key insights for specifiers, M&E consultants, contractors, facilities managers and heating engineers.
“A lot of time and energy has gone into making these CPDs as impactful as they can be. Now they have full CIBSE approval, we look forward to taking them to businesses across the country.”
With technical analysis provided throughout and 3D animation, challenges covered within the CPDs include: balancing issues, leaking AAVs, kettling, poor circulation, noise, maintenance costs, corrosion, blockages, reducing heat transfer and pump inefficiency.
Mr Jacques added: “A big issue for the industry currently is managing your carbon footprint. Ensuring there is good quality system water, free of air and debris, will go a long way towards maintaining the intended efficiency of the heating system, thereby supporting designers, installers and building owners to achieve their carbon reduction targets.”
