  • Double Containment Fuel Piping - UL 1369 - 123

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: Double Containment Fuel Piping - UL 1369 - 123. Double containment fuel piping is a reliable system designed and tested for liquid fuels such as Gasoline, Diesel, and Bio Diesel for use in above and below ground fuel piping in retail and commercial applications. Design and installation of any fuel piping system is dependent on the acceptance of the authority having jurisdiction (AHJ) and in accordance with State and Local codes. Double Containment pipe is required for all below ground applications meeting the UL 971A standard with a new above ground standard released in 2018, UL 1369.

  • In-building Blackwater Reclamation and Thermal Energy Recovery in Manhattan - 421

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: In-building Blackwater Reclamation and Thermal Energy Recovery in Manhattan - 421. In addition to water scarcity, drivers to consider water reuse now include aging or inadequate infrastructure, resiliency, resource recovery and increasing costs for conventional water and sewer. Many communities are responding by incorporating onsite water treatment and reuse systems for both existing and new-build projects. As water reuse initiatives increase, more focus is being directed to the water-energy nexus; which is the relationship between how much water is used to generate and transmit energy, and how much energy it takes to collect, clean, transport and store water. Onsite or distributed systems are located closer to the source and point of use, which facilitates local recovery of both water and thermal energy embedded in the water. Natural Systems Utilities is currently recovering thermal energy from treated wastewater at its onsite treatment and reuse systems. These projects illustrate how distributed systems can facilitate local integration of our water and energy infrastructure, and be competitive against conventional infrastructure on water, cost and carbon savings. Two New York City residential tower case studies located in Battery Park will be presented. The case studies will include a multi-building onsite treatment and reuse system at the Helena, and an existing in-building treatment and reuse system at The Solaire, a LEED Platinum has been retro-fitted to recover reuse water heat energy for domestic hot water heating purposes. The heat recovery system reduces the building heating costs and saves more equivalent thermal energy than used to power the water reuse system electrically. This presentation will explore the performance of these heat recovery applications and how, for the first time, they make small-scale onsite water treatment and reuse systems net energy producers.

  • Lab Water Design - An In-Depth Case Study and Review - 522

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: Lab Water Design - An In-Depth Case Study and Review - 522. Lab water design is a multifaceted topic consisting of high purity water generation, loop design, central system, point of use systems, aqueous waste collection/transfer and solvent collection and handling. The presentation will focus on a recently completed laboratory building. The building consisted of clean rooms as well as an additional wet lab space. The presentation will work through the case study covering the complete design of the lab water systems and piping infrastructure.

  • Not All Alloys are Created Equal - 321

    Includes a Live Web Event on 12/02/2020 at 10:00 AM (CST)

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: Not All Alloys are Created Equal - 321. There are many valve materials to choose from when designing for commercial plumbing however it can be difficult to decipher the features and benefits to each material. This presentation will explore the differences between the varieties of materials commonly chosen for design including the realization that some materials labeled as bronze technically are a brass material according to the Copper Institute.

  • Physical Water Conditioning - 122

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: Physical Water Conditioning - 122. Physical water conditioners can take the place of conventional salt based water softeners but their performance can vary and it is important to appreciate their limitations. New test protocols have been developed and are in the process of development.

  • Plumbing Systems and Global Pandemics - 422

    Includes a Live Web Event on 12/02/2020 at 1:00 PM (CST)

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: Plumbing Systems and Global Pandemics - 422. This seminar provides a broad review of the effect of COVID-19 crisis and the unintended consequences of how this crisis has specifically affected plumbing systems.

  • Practical Plumbing That Improves Customer Satisfaction - 512

    Includes a Live Web Event on 12/02/2020 at 1:00 PM (CST)

    ASPE Digital Conference Session: Practical Plumbing That Improves Customer Satisfaction - 512. This session will use hands-on teaching to explore the answers to the following questions. 1) Why does it take so long for hot water to arrive at plumbing fixtures and appliances? 2) Why is this amount of time (and water) larger than the volume in the pipe? 3) What can I do to reduce the structural and behavioral waste while waiting? 4) What one item can I include in my specifications that will increase satisfaction with modern faucets and showers?
