Eliminating the High Cost of Over-Pumping in Thermal Distribution Systems

Summary This presentation will examine how inadequate hydronic balancing will cause over pumping and low delta T. Low delta T is very costly but can be corrected. Keeping the water in the coils per their design will allow chillers, coils and pumps to perform according to their design...
