Kitchen Ventilation Improvement
This online engineering PDH course describes some of the basics of kitchen ventilation fundamentals, the influence of makeup air, makeup air recommendations, influence of other factors on kitchen ventilation, and energy savings considerations in commercial kitchen ventilation system designs. This course will also help you realize that technology and research is ongoing; therefore, it is wise to consult current design standards and codes regarding kitchen ventilation requirements and recommendations for each project.
Effective commercial kitchen ventilation (CKV) system requires air balance. Fortunately, there is no "magic" to the relationship between an exhaust hood and its requirement for replacement or makeup air (MUA). The physics are simple: air that exits the building (through exhaust hoods and fans) must be replaced with outside air that enters the building (intentionally or otherwise).
This 1 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical engineers who design commercial kitchen ventilation systems and are interested in current technology for commercial kitchen ventilation design.
This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:
- Kitchen ventilation fundamentals
- Influence of makeup air
- MUA recommendations
- Influence of other factors
- Energy savings considerations
- Design guide for commercial kitchen ventilation
In this professional engineering CEU course, you need to review the material contained in Design Guide - Improving Commercial Kitchen Ventilation System Performance, California Energy Commission P500-03-034F Rev. May 5, 2003.
