Designing PEX Plumbing Systems to Optimize Performance and Efficiency
– January 16, 2018 2 p.m. EST –
Irving, Texas—Sponsored by the Plastics Pipe Institute, Inc. (PPI), this one-hour American Society of Plumbing Engineers (ASPE) webinar is based on PPI’s “Design Guide: PEX Water Supply Plumbing Systems” (2013). It will demonstrate how the properties of PEX systems can improve the health, safety and welfare of building occupants through reliable, long-term delivery of clean water, and provides design guidance to optimize performance. The one-hour presentation will also explain piping design methods that can provide faster delivery of hot-water to fixtures, improve overall system efficiency, optimize use of materials, and improve installation efficiency.
Conducted by Lance MacNevin, P. Eng., the director of engineering for PPI’s Building and Construction Division, design examples will be illustrated and compared with empirical test data to demonstrate the best ways to design PEX plumbing systems for peak performance. PPI is the major North American trade association representing all segments of the plastic pipe industry.
