Sorry. You did not pass the Introduction to temperature control test this time

Correct
01.
Q: Why does a cooling system that uses propylene glycol as coolant demand pumps with oversized motors?
A: The viscosity and density of propylene glycol is higher than tap water.
Correct
02.
Q: What is the expected payback time of an investment in system optimisation?
A: 1-12 months
Correct
03.
Q: How do you prevent pumps from malfunctioning when transporting hot water with a temperature of well above 120C°?
A: Equip the pump with double-shaft seals or air-cooled top.
Correct
04.
Q: How have temperature control systems traditionally been regulated?
A: Constant speed pumps and throttling valves regulating the amount of water entering the heat exchanger.
Correct
05.
Q: How high is the suction lift of the self-priming CM pump?
A: Up to 8 metres
Correct
06.
Q: What is the most efficient and simple way of controlling heating, cooling and refrigeration systems?
A: Intelligent pumps equipped with temperature sensors that measure the outlet temperature and signal the pump to regulate its flow accordingly – without the use of valves.
Correct
07.
Q: Which component is often ‘the weakest link’ in centrifugal pumps?
A: Shaft seal
Correct
08.
Q: What is the ratio between the capital investment and running costs of a temperature control system?
A: 1:20
