Better Understand Hydronic Balancing via Upcoming ‘TAB Talk’ Webinar

The Associated Air Balance Council (AABC) will host a new AIA-approved webinar sponsored by IMI Hydronic Engineering in their TAB Talk series on Nov. 17.

The first key to hydronic control is design-flow availability at all terminal units under design condition. In theory, it is possible to obtain correct flows by properly sizing the plant, but in real life, installation does not always match design. Some oversizing occurs because components must be selected from existing commercial product lines. This could result in overflows and underflows in different parts resulting in poor delta-T, system performance and comfort.  The solution to this issue is to perform systematic balancing with optimal pressure-drop for design condition by decomposing the plant into hydronic modules, ensuring design flow availability at all terminal units.

“I’m looking forward to helping attendees develop a strong understanding on the key factors for hydronic controls, as well as the importance behind hydronic balancing and its effects on Delta T, system performance, and energy efficiency. By the end of this Webinar, attendees will understand the proper ways of using balancing devices and systematic balancing,” says Soham Neupane, hydronic training manager with IMI Hydronic Engineering.

Webinar Title: Hydronic Balancing – Design Flow at Terminal Units

When: Nov. 17, 2021, 2 p.m. Eastern

Duration: 1 hour

Registration Link:

Presenters: Cody Shook, P.E., TBE, CxA, Precision Flow Engineering, and Soham Neupane, IMI Hydronic Engineering.

Learning Objectives:

  • What are the objectives of HVAC installation?
  • Why is hydronic balancing important? How does it affect system performance?
  • How do we properly mount/install a balancing valve?
  • How can we create hydronic modules for systematic balancing?

Continuing Education Credits: AIA 1 LU

Cost: Free for AABC, ACG, and EMA members; $39 for non-members

AABC is a nonprofit association of qualified independent test and balance (TAB) agencies that establishes industry standards for the field measurement and documentation of HVAC systems, and provides education, technical training, and certification for its members.
