LABORATORY EXHAUST SYSTEMS: PRACTICAL APPLICATIONS, STANDARD & ENERGY SAVING SCHEMES Back to Top

Laboratory exhaust fans system design offer unique challenges as their primary function is to provide containment and exhaust of hazardous and / or noxious fumes in the laboratory, protecting students and researchers.  Additionally these systems, when properly designed, provide displacement and dispersion of the laboratory exhaust effluent to minimize the possibility of re-entrainment into air-conditioning make-up air systems.

Learning Objectives:

Course time duration: 60 minutes - (1.0 Professional Development Hours)

EFFICIENTLY CONDITIONING OUTDOOR AIR Back to Top

Proper conditioning of outdoor air is a necessity to maintain building occupants comfort to be productive as well as maintain their health.  Not only is temperature control important, but controlling the moisture content essential to prevent respiratory issues as well as control the growth of hazardous building mold.  Industry accepted standards have been adopted internationally into building codes dictating the quantity of fresh outdoor air to be added to ventilation systems as well as requiring the inclusion of energy saving equipment.

Learning Objectives:

Course time duration: 60 minutes1.0 Professional Development Hours

APPLICATION & BENEFITS OF ENERGY RECOVERY WHEELS Back to Top

Industry accepted standards have been adopted internationally into building codes dictating the quantity of fresh outdoor air to be added to ventilation systems as well as requiring the inclusion of energy saving equipment.  Energy recovery wheels are one type of energy saving components that can be added to an HVAC system.  Energy recovery wheels precondition outdoor reducing the amount of energy to heat, cool, humidify, and dehumidify fresh outdoor air prior to the outdoor air introduction to the building HVAC system.

Learning Obectives:

An interactive unit demonstration is included.

Course time duration: 30 minutes - (0.5 Professional Development Hours)

ENERGY & MAINTENANCE SAVING BENEFITS OF ELECTRONICALLY COMMUTATED MOTORS (ECM)  Back to Top

Electronically Commutated Motors (ECMs) have been available for over 20 years, unfortunately the benefits of applying these motors in lieu of fractional Permanent Split Capacity (PSC) motors in building fan systems is just being recognized.  These benefits include energy savings, easier flow balancing, reduced maintenance, better fan control, and lower acoustics.

Learning Objectives:

An interactive unit demonstration is included.

Course time duration: 30 minutes - (0.5 Professional Development Hours)

FAN ENERGY SAVING & ACOUSTIC REDUCTIONS OF NON-INVASIVE AIRFLOW MEASUREMENT Back to Top

Airflow measurement in ventilation and fan systems is usually accomplished using flow measurement tubes (probes) installed in the ventilation system.  In many cases these flow measurement tubes are placed close to, or in the fan inlet.  Located in the fan inlet, these probes become “invasive” and create turbulence, resulting in a system effect that reduces the required system fan performance.  To compensate for this system effect, and obtain the required fan flow, the fan speed must be increased, resulting in greater energy use and louder sound.

Learning Objectives:

An interactive unit demonstration is included.

Course time duration: 30 minutes - (0.5 Professional Development Hours) 

IMPROVING COMFORT CONDITIONS & ENERGY SAVINGS IN KITCHEN VENTILATION SYSTEMS Back to Top

Commercial kitchen ventilation systems exhaust large quantities of air to contain and capture fumes and vapor from cooking surfaces and equipment. Continuously exhausting large quantities of air results in high energy costs.  During a 24 hour period, commercial kitchens have variations in the exhaust requirements that present energy savings to the building owner.  Explanation, review and application of these strategies will be presented.

Learning Objectives:

An interactive unit demonstration is included.

Course time duration: 30 minutes - (0.5 Professional Development Hours)

UNDERSTANDING THE NEGATIVE IMPACT ON FAN PERFORMANCE OF POOR DUCT DESIGNS & INSTALLATIONS (SYSTEM EFFECT) Back to Top

Improper duct design contributes to reduced air flow and ventilation in HVAC systems.  More significant are the duct designs that are connected directly to a fan inlet and outlet.  Poor duct designs on fan inlets and outlets cause turbulence, resulting in a system effect that reduces the required system fan performance.  Understanding how to properly apply inlet and outlet ducts to fans, insures air flow performance, reduces field visits, saves energy, and lowers fan sound.

Learning Objectives:

An interactive unit demonstration is included.

Course time duration: 30 minutes - (0.5 Professional Development Hours)

LIFE SAFETY DAMPERS  Back to Top

Life Safety Dampers are very important components in HVAC systems. They are designed to protect building occupants from dangers caused by fires and smoke. It is important for engineers and designers to understand typical damper designs, testing and certification as well as the codes involved to best apply the correct device for a given application.

Learning Objectives:

Course time duration: 60 minutes - (1.0 Professional Development Hours)

BACKDRAFT & CONTROL DAMPERS Back to Top

Dampers are another item in an HVAC system that offer unique opportunities for energy savings while affording comfort to building occupants. Understanding available product types and their applications will give the specifier useful information that leads to better building designs.

Learning Objectives:

Course time duration: 30 minutes - (0.5 Professional Development Hours) 

HVAC FAN APPLICATION PRINCIPLES Back to Top

There are many types of fans to consider for use in HVAC systems. From sidewall to inline, axial to centrifugal to mixed flow, backward curved to airfoil, all have strengths in given situations. Learn which to use and why.

Learning Objectives:

Course time duration: 120 minutes - (2.0 Professional Development Hours)

LOUVER APPLICATION:  LOUVERS ARE IMPORTANT TO THE PROPER FUNCTION AND SAFETY AS WELL AS AESTHETICS OF A FACILITY Back to Top

Understanding what kinds of louvers are available and what can be done with them is important. Architects and specifying engineers use louvers to protect intake and exhaust access points to a facility. Understanding how to size them for proper flow rates as well as applications involving life safety in coastal regions is very important to both parties.
