Keltech Tankless Water Heater with Revit Type Catalog | Clearance Box

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Apr 7, 2017 9:30:00 AM

How to Load Keltech Revit Family Using A Revit Family Catalog

Some Revit Keltech tankless water heater families include a Revit family catalog file (*.txt). All of them have a Clearance Box object. (The Revit Clearance Box object is defined below)

Make sure the Revit Keltech Family Catalog file (*.txt) ALWAYS remains with and in the same folder as the Revit family.

Load the the Keltech Tankless Water Heater family from the Revit Ribbon:

  • HOME Tab > Component

Next select Load Family Button in the upper right corner

When the Load Family file dialogue box pops up;

  • Navigate to your Keltech Revit Family Folder > Select the Family > Select Open

The Keltech Revit Family Type Box will pop up; showing the Keltech models in the catalog.

You may need to slide the horizontal scroll bar (right/left) at the bottom of the dialog box, to see all the parameter columns for each Revit Type.

Select one or several Keltech models by holding down the CTRL Key and selecting the models (in the Type Column) you wish to load into your project.

Bradley Keltech Commercial Tankless Water Heater Models as the perfect sustainable design option for reducing a facility's water and energy consumption for these applications:

  • Car and Truck Wash Facilities
  • Water Heating for Remote Toilet, Shower & Locker Rooms
  • Sports & Healthcare Laundry Sanitization
  • Geo-Thermal Heat Pump HVAC Systems
  • Solar Water Heating Heat Pump HVAC Systems
  • Food Service Dishwasher Sanitization Processes
  • Emergency Eye\Face Wash Systems
  • Enclosed Safety Showers - Eye\Face Wash Systems

The Keltech Revit Model Library is located in the Bradley Revit Library (1,000 models).

Benefits of Tankless Water Heating Applications

Save Money

Easy installation means lower labor cost. A small footprint means less square footage needed for utilities. Lower energy use and less maintenance mean lower utility and maintenance costs over the life of the product.

Save Energy

Inefficient boiler systems have to generate heat and maintain temperature 24 hours per day, 7 days per week. Keltech tankless heaters only heat water when needed. And, Keltech's innovative controller is fully modulating so you only use the actual kW needed, not full power or stages.

Save Space

A large commercial tank water heater requires a large space. Keltech tankless water heaters only require 3 square feet (.3 square meters) of space to generate 491,000 BTUs.

Simple Installation

Requires only one electrical connection and water. No pumps, no external fusing, and no design needs to be considered externally - it's all built into the heater.

Simple to Maintain

No tank to maintain, no anodes, no softeners.

ASPE Phoenix – How BIM Changes Everything | Revit Family Secrets - April 18

Posted by Daniel Hughes on Mar 31, 2014 10:45:18 AM

Join Bradley BIM at The ASPE Phoenix AZ Chapter - BIM Technical\Educational Seminar | BIM for the Plumbing Engineer on Friday, April 18, 2014 from 12:00 - 3:00pm.

The Bradley BIM 3-hour educational seminar is taught in two- presentation sessions; with a short intermission between sessions.

Session #1 - How BIM Changes Everything

The Building Information Modeling (BIM) process offers multiple opportunities to automate and coordinate the construction documents and specifications, using a virtual 3D facility model.

BIM authoring software (Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks) allow multiple users (disciplines) to work simultaneously in the facility model file during the construction + design processes. This collaborative workflow uses new tools for project programming & phasing, creating specifications & cost estimates, and prefabrication & commissioning documentation.

We'll take a visual tour of 3rd party applications, BIM-based projects & discuss how firms have saved time & labor using BIM.

Session #2 - Revit Family Secrets - Creating Quality Content

This technical session is designed for attendees; that are building or managing Autodesk Revit family content for their organizations and projects. Every Revit project has the time and labor costs for gathering and\or creating Revit project families.

Class content provides proven and tested Revit family creation techniques; that was used to create thousands of Revit families for hundreds of Revit projects since 2003.

It has trained more than 150 professionals to assume the role of a Revit-BIM Manager. It provides basic techniques to quickly evaluate, perhaps edit and use pre-built Revit family content found on manufacturers’ and Revit user group websites --to meet your standards.

Presentation Title: "How BIM Changes Everything"

Educational Speaker: Daniel Hughes BIM Strategist - Bradley Corporation

BIM Presentation Description:

"How BIM Changes Everything"

Building Information Modeling (BIM) is a process that offers multiple opportunities to automate and better coordinate the construction documents and specifications, from a 3D computer model. BIM authoring software (Revit, Bentley, ArchiCAD, Vectorworks) allow multiple users (disciplines) to work simultaneously in the facility model file during the construction + design processes.

This collaborative workflow uses new tools for programming & project phasing, creating specifications & cost estimates, and prefabrication & commissioning documentation.

Learn how the BIM process is redefining

  1. the project workflow,
  2. team roles & responsibilities,
  3. marketing of services,
  4. contractual BIM deliverables defined by both private & public BIM mandates; with an ongoing requirement for training & professional development.

Thank you to Smith & Stevenson for sponsoring the Raleigh ASPE Bradley BIM presentation.
