Technical Session Descriptions

Armstrong Fluid Technology
Making Energy Make Sense: Design Envelope HVAC Pump and CHW Controls Systems
Tuesday, November 11th – 8:00 AM – 9:00 AM (1 PDH offered)

Rising energy costs and sustainability governance are driving the development of new technologies to improve the performance of buildings. Armstrong answers the challenge with unmatched pumping efficiency and performance. Design Envelope IVS pumps reduce pumping costs through true demand-based-control variable speed operation — consuming only the energy required, based on real-time, current system demand that is mapped as an “envelope” in the on-board controller. This ensures a building’s hydronic pumping system consumes as little energy as possible. Further, in the larger context of a Chilled Water plant control system, the Design Envelope concept of real-time demand-based control is magnified through equipment-specific performance mapping that is optimally processed by an all-knowing relational controller that continuously delivers ultra-efficient CHW plant performance for both new construction and energy-upgrade retrofits. In fact, even in today’s VPF plants, our OptiVisor can command additional savings as high as 25% over the “best-in-class” offerings from other control methods. Case studies in critical-energy environments such as data centers (e.g., eBay, Digital Realty) and commercial installations speak for themselves. This substantive discussion sets the stage for our USGBC-certified instructional session in the afternoon (2 LEED CEU’s) – you’ll want to make time for both.

SPX – Flow Technology – APV Plate Heat Exchangers
Innovative Heat Plate Exchanger Design
Tuesday, November 11th – 9:15 AM – 10:00 AM

With the growth of project utilizing water source heat pumps, the opportunity to utilize heat plate exchangers with open cooling tower increases. As the inventor of the Plate Frame Heat Exchanger, SPX-Flow Technology continues to be on the cutting edge of design with innovative designs to provide improved energy saving Plate Frame Heat Exchangers. Adding the growth in the medical center and downtown areas, fed from district cooling facilities which require heat exchangers in their clients’ facilities, there is renewed needs for plate frame heat exchangers in the Houston market place. Come learn what SPX-Flow Technology can offer you on your designs and projects. Marley

Open Loop versus Closed Loop Towers
Tuesday, November 11th –10:15 AM –11:00 AM

The constant time crunch along with trying to provide the best design of a system for a client often does not allow time to evaluate the choice of system options, let alone options in the water cooled arena. We are often asked to compare and/or describe the differences between a closed loop cooling tower and an open loop cooling tower. Their basic features lead a lot into this, along with understanding them to best propose to a client a system that will meet their present needs – rather first cost, energy consumption, maintenance of the entire system, sound restraints, etc. As a manufacturer of both options, this session will review the features of both and provide information you can use in your evaluations for clients.

Engineering Ethics with Jason Young (Presenter)
Tuesday, November 11th – 11:00 AM – 12:30 PM
CEU for Engineering Ethics Provided

As professional engineers in the State of Texas, Engineering Ethics is a fundamental concept and focus in the yearly continuing education requirement. Often these topics focus on past failures and review what should have been done. We want to take a different approach to this requirement and provide a speaker which we hope will address the topic with more of a glass half full approach. We will meet the State of Texas requirements and provide either printed out certificates or certificates directly emailed to you upon the end of the session. Please join us for this presentation over lunch. If you are not a State of Texas Professional Engineer, we feel the luncheon presentation will still be enlightening and entertaining.

Marley Variable Flow Condenser Water and Cooling Tower Operation
Tuesday, November 11th – 1:00 PM – 1:45 PM

Energy savings and how they can be utilized effectively and easily in HVAC systems is not a new concept. The concept to take this step of energy savings and variable flow condenser water is still on the cutting edge with many people. Variable flow on pumps is not the primary concern as much as how will variable flow affect the cooling tower performance. The effect of the cooling tower performance varies between counterflow and crossflow design cooling towers. As a manufacturer of both, Marley is in a position to fairly weigh and discuss the pros and cons of this concept and how cooling tower performance and even the concept of how free cooling can work in Houston.

Armstrong Fluid Technology
Making Energy Make Sense: CHW Plant Design and Control
Tuesday, November 11th – 2:00 PM to 4:00 PM (2 USGBC LEED CEU’s offered)

  • Confidently satisfy ASHRAE 90.1/189.1 pumping standards with predictable, guaranteed performance
  • Make intelligent equipment selections that easily meet max-load conditions AND, more importantly, excel at daily, part-load operation zones
  • Reduce risk for engineers, contractors and owners with single-source, factory-integrated fluid systems that deliver reliable performance and supreme confidence
  • Precise load-matching is achieved by replacing inaccurate PID control methods with Digital Demand-Based Control & Natural Curve Sequencing
  • Holistic systems-based thinking embeds actual equipment performance maps for every component into a masterful conductor that considers all components simultaneously, continuously guaranteeing max savings
  • Post-install Continuous Commissioning guarantees that the results promised are delivered on an on-going basis with “health care” monitoring for your CHW plant’s performance

High Performance Leadership: Interpersonal Communications and Performance Coaching with Jason Young (Presenter)
Tuesday, November 11th –4:30 PM – 5:30 PM

In this session, Jason Young inspires executives, supervisors and managers at every level to help transform the workplace and improve bottom-line performance by imparting important skills every leader needs. Participants will learn how strong interpersonal communications and performance coaching can have the greatest impact for influencing those they lead. Espousing the innovative strategies and tactics he helped developed at Southwest Airlines; Jason offers key insights and practical ideas that can be implemented immediately.
