ASHRAE Columbus December Event

Topic: Condensing Boilers - Equipment Selection, Optimizing Boiler Efficiency, Understanding Physical Limitations

Condensing Boiler selection is not as simple as it sounds, with over thirty companies providing some type of condensing boiler it is important to understand the differences in design and performance. We will cover the different types of condensing boilers and examine the pros and cons of various designs. We will explain the truths about efficiency and how simply selecting a high-efficiency boiler may not equate to performance improvements. We will look at all around system performance and how to achieve higher total system efficiency through the use of modern control technology and equipment selection, resulting in lower upfront cost with no compromise on efficiency, resulting in faster payback on investment.

Speaker: Jim Coogan, ASHRAE Distinguished Lecturer

Sustainability is an idea based on a long term outlook.  Turning your labs green requires that same long term view.  This talk presents a step-by-step approach to assessing and improving the environmental performance of a laboratory facility.  Lab ventilation and energy issues are introduced for background. A variety of energy conservation measures are discussed along with an assessment program to determine which measures are most appropriate for a particular facility.  True sustainability includes indoor environmental health, so the best approach brings responsible EH&S professionals into the process from the start.
Jim Coogan is a Principal in product development and applications at Siemens Building Technologies. In 30 years designing controls for mechanical systems, he has contributed to products ranging from simple room controllers to Internet-based operator interfaces. His work has resulted in numerous patents. Jim has chaired several ASHRAE Technical Committees including, Control Theory and Applications, and Laboratory Systems. He also chairs the committee developing the first version of a Standard Method of Test for Airflow Controls. Jim served as vice-chair of the AIHA committee that revised the Z9.5 Standard: Laboratory Ventilation. Jim has participated in various activities in the Labs for the 21st Century program. Publications include technical papers on room pressurization and laboratory system commissioning. Jim earned his SB in mechanical engineering at MIT.
