How to achieve ultra-low particulate counts for today’s most challenging manufacturing needs.
Cleanrooms are a unique and challenging building space to construct. Extensive considerations are required to achieve the ultra-low particulate counts required in modern day cleanrooms, such as those used for manufacturing pharmaceuticals, semi-conductors, and EV Batteries. This presentation will explore the engineering fundamentals, codes, and practical considerations in Cleanroom Design.
Who is this for?Engineers who design, maintain, or have an interest in clean rooms.
Electrified VAV Terminal Systems
Revising the VAV system to meet ongoing decarbonization trends.
This presentation will review industry trends towards an electrified and decarbonized built environment and the impacts it has on historical VAV system design. Heat pumps systems are becoming more common for both new and retrofit projects and are quickly outpacing all electric reheat or traditional high water temperature gas boiler systems. The impacts of these systems will be discussed with a focus on how traditional terminal heat exchangers and their performance are impacted. This presentation will present industry research and findings and provide recommendations on design, selection, and control of terminal units to improve HVAC system performance.
Who is this for?Engineers who want to optimize the performance of their VAV system designs.
Patient Isolation Rooms
Comfort, Controls, and Clean Air. How to design our most critical healthcare environments.
Patient Isolation Rooms can be particularly challenging environments to design. The air distribution system must supply clean air to the patient, maintain pressurization to prevent unwanted leakage in/out of the space, as well as meet the thermal comfort requirements from a thermostat. This webinar will explore both the typical HVAC equipment layouts of Patient Isolation Rooms and the control schemes behind them.
Who is this for?Engineers who design, maintain, or an have interest in hospital HVAC systems.
Perimeter Heating Solutions
Successful case studies in a universally challenging application.
Building perimeters pose a unique engineering challenge as they are often both the building's greatest heating and cooling load. Unlike interior zones, these require systems that can efficiently provide heating without compromising the comfort and air quality requirements of the occupants. This webinar will explore the challenges of perimeter zones, what works, what doesn't, and explore practical design solutions, including the use of bar grilles, linears, and floor troughs. CFD will be used to validate the performance of a particularly challenging design.
Who is this for?Any engineer who designs for both heating and cooling loads.
Fan Coil Design for High Loads and High Value Spaces
Practical lessons from Life Science retrofits and high cost-per-square-foot fan coil applications.
Retrofits of office buildings have become popular in the wake of the work-from-home movement. Building owners are looking for creative solutions to increase tenancy in high-value buildings. Fan Coils and Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems allow for higher space loads while maximizing the utilization of existing HVAC infrastructure. This webinar will explore practical lessons in retrofitting fan coils in high-value office spaces including case studies from Life Science buildings – a particularly challenging application. Acoustical mitigation is especially critical and will be reviewed in detail.
Who is this for?Engineers who use fan coils and/or handle retrofit designs.
Demystifying Air Distribution Acoustics
When your HVAC design is louder than you expected - and how to fix it!
This webinar will cover the layout of ducts and air moving devices, specifically how these affect noise in the occupied space. Viewers will leave with greater confidence: how to layout their ductwork and air moving devices to reduce noise, how to interpret noise data from standardized tests, and when/how to reduce the resultant noise with additional noise control solutions.
Who is this for?Any person who has ever experienced a noisy HVAC system.
