Armour Valve recently hosted a User Group Training Session for district energy (DE) professionals at its head office in Toronto. The session included a diverse mix of participants coming together to learn about problem-solving solutions that optimize District Energy system performance.
Armour Valve first launched its DE User Group Training Sessions in Vancouver in 2018 in order to share best practices and best-in-class solutions with local contractors, engineers, and end users. A session typically includes a technical workshop with a focus on products, applications, and system performance. Participants can engage in Q&A directly with manufacturers who bring decades of experience helping clients achieve higher system efficiency and learn about proper installation through hands-on demonstrations.
