LOCATION: SaskEnergy Training Centre
                     1301 Quebec Avenue, Saskatoon

Day 1—Students learn advantages of hydronic systems, boilers, venting and combustion, air pumps, air control, expansion tanks, valves, emitters, controls, and balancing. A working hydronics board and computer software will be used to visually demonstrate many of the principles presented.  Attendees will leave with a good understanding of how all the pieces in hydronics systems function and interact. They will be able to lay out the components in the correct order for proper operation and diagnose problems in existing systems.

Day 2—Students focus on Hydronic System Design – defining requirements, piping layout, selecting equipment, pipe/pump sizing, operating temperatures, control strategies.  The group will design a system from scratch and receive Excel spreadsheet programs to do routine calculations for hydronic system design/analysis.  The instruction also covers:  

Day 1: Advantages of Hydronic Systems
  • Boilers, venting, and combustion air
  • Pumps, air control, expansion tanks
  • Valves, emitters (terminal units), controls, balancing
  • Primary to secondary piping connections
  • Heat loss calculations

A working hydronics board and computer software will be used to visually demonstrate many of the principles presented. Attendees will leave with a good understanding of how all the pieces in hydronics systems function and interact, be able to lay out these components in the correct order for proper operation, and be able to look at existing systems that have issues and correctly diagnose problems.

Day 2: Hydronic System Design
  • Defining requirements, piping layout
  • Selecting equipment, pipe/pump sizing
  • Operating temperatures, control strategies
  • Primary to secondary piping, pumping, and control
  • Analyze temperature relationships
  • Boiler controls, including code requirements for safety devices
  • Variable speed pumping
  • Troubleshooting techniques
  • Basic electrical trouobleshooting

The group will design a system from scratch and receive Excel spreadsheet programs to do routine calculations for hydronic system design/analysis.
