Dipping Presents Hot Topic at ASPE Conference

ESD technical director of plumbing engineering will be speaking at the 2021 ASPE Tech Symposium which will feature plumbing engineering industry professionals discussing the latest innovations and trends.

James Dipping will be heading a session titled “Hot Water Distribution Temperatures, Legionella Control & the Need for Enhanced Scald Prevention Tactics” during the annual Tech Symposium hosted by ASPE (American Society of Plumbing Engineers). Dipping says the industry is shifting away from low-temperature hot water distribution systems due to an increased awareness of Legionella and other water-borne pathogens in plumbing systems.

Dipping’s presentation will focus on how greater attention must be paid to distribution temperatures, recirculation temperatures, hot water return pump calculations, and fixture applications to meet requirements and avoid the danger of scalding. According to Dipping, this will require a high level of knowledge of ASSE-rated devices. His talk will outline the need for engineers to have familiarity with the rating, applications, and best practices associated with protecting the public from scalding.

The event is scheduled for September 22-26.

James Dipping brings more than two decades of experience to his role as technical director, plumbing engineering and freely shares his knowledge at these types of professional events as part of furthering ESD’s mission to improve society through the built environment.
