How to Design a Hot Water Recirculation System
This video demonstrates how to design a hot water recirculation system using H2X.
Designing a hot water recirculation system can be one of the most challenging parts of the job for many engineers. When done correctly, the process can involve numerous iterations of calculations between pipe sizing and heat loss before the final results are realised.
This video demonstrates how simple it is to design a hot water recirculation system using H2X, and includes the following;
How to Set Calculation Parameters
Insulation type and thickness
Delta T between flow and return
How to Add Hot Water Plant
How to Draw Pipes and Set Pipe Heights
How to Connect Fixtures and Valves
Return system duty flow rate
Return system pressure loss
Return system heat loss
Balancing valve Kv value
Pipe peak flow rate
Pipe return flow rate
Pipe loading units
