Geothermal Design Center Advanced TRT Analysis Request
Requirements for Advanced TRT Data Submission
Obtaining an Advanced TRT data analysis requires uploading a spredsheet with
one Row for each data sample collected, and containing the following Columns:
- One or two columns containing the date and time of each data sample
- One column containing the incoming fluid temperature
- One column containing the outgoing fluid temperature
- One column containing the electric power input, including power to the pump
- One column containing the fluid flow rate (optional for electric heating TRT equipment)
After submission of your data, you will receive an invoice if you have not yet setup an account with us.  All data will be analyzed by specially trained Certified Geothermal Designers, with final review by a PE.  Results typically require 2-3 days before delivery.

About Advanced Thermal Conductivity Testing
Geothermal Design Center brings Leadership and Innovation to the Geothermal Heat Pump (GHP/GSHP) industry.  We won a Small Business Vouchers Pilot grant to have Oak Ridge National Lab (ORNL) validate our new breakthrough Advanced Thermal Conductivity Testing (A-TCT) method.  The effort has been a 100% SUCCESS!!  ORNL confirmed our new way to perform ground Thermal Conductivity Testing works faster and better than existing methods. Further, our new advanced methods can be used to confirm proper ground loop installation pipe and grout -- a completely new capability for the geothermal heat pump industry.  Our new A-TCT method further lowers the cost of Thermal Conductivity Testing testing by eliminating the need for an expensive generator -- stable power is no longer required!  This is an exciting development for the geothermal industry that will significantly improve the quality of Thermal Testing and lower its cost for all GHP sites -- Institutional, Commercial, and Residential.  This is just one of our several GHP Product Development efforts.
