    The Return of Johnny Tundra, Cold-Weather Engineer 2

    Fifteen years ago, Ron Wilkinson became a commissioning authority. At the time, most commissioning case studies focused on problems of moisture incursion in air-conditioned buildings in hot and humid climates. Ron wanted to call attention to cold-weather problems in Northern Tier states and do it in a way “that was fun and that described the American ‘can-do’ attitude in the context of actual engineering problems.” The result: a series of mystery/adventure stories starring the “troubleshooter from Big Timber,” Johnny Tundra....More

Engineering Study: The Future of Chilled Water Plants and Waterside Economizers

An engineering study was completed to compare a water-cooled centrifugal chiller with a waterside economizer, to a single water-cooled magnetic bearing centrifugal chiller operating in inverted duty - the YORK YMC2 chiller. In this webinar the results of the study will be presented, summarizing the differences between the two options in terms of chiller plant design, first costs, operating costs, and ownership (maintenance, footprint, and controls). Attendees of this webinar will learn:...More

Essential Strategies for Insulating Cold Piping In HVAC Systems

Insulation can make or break the performance and longevity of a chilled water or variable refrigerant flow (VRF) system. This webinar covers everything an engineer needs to know before committing a client to a specific insulation strategy, including the stresses imposed on these piping systems and how various insulation options differ in terms of ease of installation, vulnerability to moisture, and more....More
