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 system at Hanford Mills Museum.
