$149 (discounts available)

This ​full ​day ​design-focused ​workshop ​examines ​best ​practices ​for ​combining ​modern, ​high ​efficiency ​wood-fired ​boilers ​with ​hydronic ​distribution ​systems. ​ ​It ​will ​cover ​the ​operating ​characteristics ​of ​two-stage ​wood-gasification ​boilers, ​pellet-fired ​boilers, ​and ​wood-chip ​boilers ​and ​the ​latest ​hydronic ​heating ​technology ​that ​can ​complement ​these ​high ​efficiency ​heat ​sources. ​The ​hydronic ​topics ​discussed ​will ​include ​low ​temperature ​heat ​emitters, ​high ​efficiency ​circulators, ​modern ​control ​techniques, ​and ​options ​for ​water-based ​thermal ​storage.

The ​workshop ​culminates ​with ​several ​examples ​of ​how ​to ​combine ​these ​heat ​sources ​and ​distribution ​techniques ​into ​stable, ​efficient, ​and ​reliable ​systems. ​If ​you ​plan ​to ​be ​involved ​in ​designing ​or ​installing ​wood-based ​biomass ​heating ​systems, ​this ​workshop ​will ​present ​a ​wide ​range ​of ​design ​details ​that ​will ​help ​optimize ​the ​performance ​your ​systems ​deliver.

This training will include a tour of the biomass boiler plant and district heating system at the Ray Brook state office campus.​
