HydroSketch is a cloud-based software for drawing piping and electrical schematic diagrams to document hydronic heating and cooling systems.  It was designed for users who need to make a simple drawing, without the lengthy learning curve associated with most CAD software.  Its intuitive interface uses the concept of “drag and drop” to add components from several “toolboxes” to a drawing canvas.  These components are then joined into piping or electrical systems using intelligent connectors.

HydroSketch is now available in single user licenses at less than 1/3 of its original cost.  A single user license costs $99 and lasts 3 years.  This allows contractors, installers, wholesalers, engineers, and technical service representatives to generate unlimited numbers of drawings for just $33 dollars per year.

A free 30-day trial version of HydroSketch is available at www.Hydrosketch.com

Heat metering has practical applications including apportioning energy costs to multiple customers served by a central system based on individual consumption.  Another common application is verifying if a heating (or cooling) source is producing its expected thermal output.  With the recently defined ASTM E3137 Standard Specification for Heat Meter Instrumentation, the stage has been set for the standard to Read more

Heat metering has practical applications including apportioning energy costs to multiple customers served by a central system based on individual consumption.  Another common application is verifying if a heating (or cooling) source is producing its expected thermal output.  With the recently defined ASTM E3137 Standard Specification for Heat Meter Instrumentation, the stage has been set for the standard to appear in specifications and job requirements in North America.

John Siegenthaler, P.E. kicks off the 2019 webinar series to elaborate on the benefits of heat metering including concepts and illustrations of practical applications at the next extended edition of Coffee with Caleffi on Thursday, Feb. 21at 12 noon – 1:30 p.m. CST.

You’ll learn:

→ Does antifreeze fluid passing through a heat meter affect its ability to accurately measure heat flow?
→ Can the same heat meter be used to measure heating energy and cooling energy delivery?
→ What’s the best way to change the length of a temperature sensor cable on a heat meter?
→ How many conductors are necessary to connect multiple CONTECA heat meters together?

A seasoned industry leader and passionate teacher, John shares his over 35 years’ experience in the understanding and proper application of water-based engineering principles with our audience. He is the principal of Appropriate Designs and a regular contributor to industry publications.

During the AHR Expo, John Siegenthaler and Caleffi surprised Bob “Hot Rod” Rohr with a copy and dedication of his new book.

Hot Rod has been a plumbing, radiant heat and solar contractor and installer for 30 years and has pushed the envelope of design and function for all in the area of renewable energy and the technical design of said systems. Bob currently heads up the training and education division of Caleffi both at and away from their US office in Milwaukee, WI.
