June: Armstrong Fluid Technology building performance webinars for changing environments

Depending on the tenant make-up, your buildings may be full or nearly empty. Either way, the performance demands on mechanical systems will be affected and the operating costs will draw attention. Join Armstrong Fluid Technology for a series of webinars on aspects of building performance, all with a focus on helping you navigate in a changing environment. Here are the webinars being offered in June:

How Edge and Cloud Computing Technology can Keep your Building Operating Beyond Expectations, 11 a.m. EDT, June 9

The continued development of computing technologies, particularly in their application within industrial environments has brought the combination and comparisons of edge computing and cloud computing to the world of HVAC. How will these technologies affect current and future building projects? What does this mean for design architecture of HVAC systems and the BMS systems that control them? Join us Tuesday, June 9th for a fascinating investigation of the IT and AI technologies that will soon be a part of the HVAC industry.

Flow balancing in hydronics systems, 11 a.m. EDT, June 12

Satisfying the comfort requirements of occupants in different parts of a facility can be a never-ending task. With varying levels of accuracy in flow control between circulators and valves, and in some cases very low accuracy in the available flow data, balancing contractors face a daunting challenge with each new building. But there are new solutions to help contractors install, commission and balance hydronic systems more quickly and more accurately. Join us Friday, June 12th to learn about advanced solutions for accurate and easy flow balancing within hydronic systems.

Ask a Fire Safety Expert – Panel Discussion, 11 a.m. EDT, June 16

For true Fire Safety Professional, the job and the contribution to the safety of others is a constant source of pride, as is their depth of knowledge and expertise in their chosen field. But as much as the pros all know their own specialty, everyone has more to learn. So, bring your questions about fire safety and fire suppression systems to our Ask the Expert Session on Tuesday, June 16th. We’ve assembled a panel of Fire systems experts to answer any question you can throw at them. If you’d like to make sure your question is addressed in the session, send it to us in advance via email to info@amrstrongfluidtechnology.com. Register today to save your place!

How Sprinkler Contractors Can Save Time and Money with Self-regulating, Variable-speed Fire Pumps, 11 a.m. EDT, June 19

Safety is not an option and fire codes must be met. But you can adhere to the fire code, and even beyond, and still be smart about your work and your cost management. Still relatively new to the industry and the NFPA code, Self-regulating, Variable-speed Fire Pumps offer amazing savings in materials, installation labor, commissioning and on-going maintenance. Join us Friday, June 19th for a deep-dive into new, intelligent variable-speed technology, its application to Fire Pumps, and how it will transform the installation of fire sprinkler systems.

Variable Primary versus Primary/Variable Secondary Chilled Water Pumping, 11 a.m. EDT, June 23

Within the broader context of design decisions, the choice between Variable primary flow and Primary/Variable secondary seems almost inconsequential. But the differences in operating practices and efficiencies between the two types of systems matter. Those aspects, combined with the short and long-term cost implications, make this an important design choice for any building. For a careful comparison, plus the latest info on the merits of each configuration, and an explanation of industry-leading variable speed technology, join us Tuesday, June 23rd.

The value of central pumping over distributed multiple circulator pumping, 11 a.m. EDT, June 26

A distributed pumping system uses one circulator for every zone to provide flow. A centralized pumping design uses fewer, larger pumps to achieve the same flow. The two different approaches both have pros and cons, but the differences in performance and cost make it an important design choice. For the latest in circulator and pump controls and how the new technology affects system design, join us Friday, June 26th.
