A New System Approach to Efficient Central Plant and District Heating design : A New System Approach to Efficient Central Plant and District Heating design CIBSE AM12:2013 (9.16, p 49) states: “It is preferable to adopt a variable volume control system for the DH system and all of the building heating systems connected. This will ensure that pumping energy is minimised through reducing the volume of water to be pumped and the pressure drops to be met, and also reduces heat losses through ensuring that return temperatures remain low under part load conditions.” PowerPoint Presentation: “It is recommended that, for new systems, radiator circuit temperatures of 70ºC (flow) and 40°C(return) are used with a maximum return temperature of 25°C from instantaneous domestic hot water heat exchangers.” PowerPoint Presentation: 70/40 is well suited to new radiator systems at maximum load conditions.  In part load conditions, flow temperatures should be reduced using weather compensation . The main characteristic of a “70/40 ” ( 60/30 or other) system is a large ΔT and low return temperature to best suit the lead (low carbon)  heat source .

PowerPoint Presentation: Danfoss TPV Temperature Chart PowerPoint Presentation: The Primed Temperature Set-back lowers the temperature at which the plate heat exchanger is kept warm with app. 8 °C helping to reduce primary return temperatures and system distribution losses.

The 70/40 principle - tried and tested: The 70/40 principle - tried and tested PowerPoint Presentation: SAV have put together a CIBSE-accredited CPD Seminar, which explores the main issues arising from a 70/40 approach to design. The agenda for this is given under the CPD Seminars tab further along this website . The 70/40 method can be expected to have far-reaching implications, and discussions which are a normal part of each Seminar will sharpen your insight into developments in this field. 70/40 CPD Seminars PowerPoint Presentation: Read more on on http:// sav-systems.com
