HVAC Design for Cleanroom Facilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course provides an overview of cleanroom and discusses the key HVAC design aspects applicable to cleanrooms.

 

Although the idea of a cleanroom may seem right out of science fiction, clean and controlled environments are actually used by a wide range of industries. From their more obvious uses in medical facilities to their necessity in integrated circuit manufacture, cleanrooms provide an essential role in modern production and research. At its most basic level, a cleanroom is just what it sounds like: an area kept free of contaminants.

 

There are five (5) key elements for the control of airborne particulate matter:

  1. Preventing entry of particulate matter
  2. Purging of particulate matter
  3. Prohibiting the generation of particulate matter
  4. Protecting the product from impact and settling of particulate matter
  5. Providing an area for the cleaning of parts and personnel

 

This 6 PDH  online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of cleanroom facilities.

COURSE TITLE: HVAC Design for Healthcare Facilities
COURSE NO: M06-011
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC Design for Healthcare Facilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course briefly outlines the best practices for design, construction and maintenance of healthcare HVAC systems. This course contains some, but not all, of the criteria pertinent to the design of HVAC systems for hospitals and is not substitute for industry standards such as AIA, OSHA, ASHRAE, ARI, JCAHO etc.

 

Hospitals and other healthcare facilities are complex environments that require special attention to HVAC design. Hospital air conditioning assumes a more important role than just the promotion of comfort. In many cases, proper air conditioning is a factor in patient therapy; in some instance, it is the major treatment. Studies show that patient in controlled environments generally has more rapid physical improvement than do those in uncontrolled environments.

 

Poor IAQ can adversely impact the patients' and staffs' health, comfort and productivity. To build an effective HVAC system, maintaining the quality of air as well as designing for the efficient removal of foreign particles is a challenge. The filtration and building pressure control is the most important component of HVAC design.

 

This 6 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of HVAC for healthcare facilities.

Learning Objectives

This PE continuing education course is intended to provide you with the following specific knowledge and skills:

  • Infection control practices to minimize airborne contaminants
  • Air distribution effectiveness within spaces served by the ventilation/HVAC systems
  • Air quality requirements in the healthcare facilities
  • Room pressure relationships of isolation rooms
  • Temperature and humidity design criteria
  • Filtration practices
  • Selection of HVAC equipment including chillers, air-handling systems and distribution systems
  • System reliability and redundancy recommendations
  • Energy-conservative design practices for the healthcare environment

COURSE TITLE: HVAC Design for Oil and Gas Facilities
COURSE NO: M04-014
COURSE PROVIDER: A. Bhatia
HVAC Design for Oil and Gas Facilities
Course Highlights

This online engineering PDH course will help explain the complexities of HVAC design for offshore installations and how to go about carrying out the selection of a proper system and related equipment.

 

Oil & Gas (O&G) facilities are fraught with numerous challenges related to health and safety, logistics, economics, quality assurance and overall performance. HVAC design for such facilities needs special considerations not only to minimize the potential loss to capital investment but also to isolate the personnel from life-threatening environment. The main objectives of HVAC systems in O&G facilities include:

  1. Maintain acceptable working and living environment for personnel and non - destructive conditions for equipment.
  2. Prevent ingress of potentially explosive/toxic gas-air mixtures into non-hazardous areas, electrical switch rooms and equipment rooms.
  3. Prevent formation of any combustible mixture and maintain an atmosphere where the gas/air mixture is kept below LEL during normal operation.
  4. Provide dilution ventilation for all enclosed hazardous areas in order to reduce the risk from build-up of potentially explosive/toxic gases within these spaces.
  5. Prevent smoke spreading and keep enclosed escape ways free of smoke in case of fire.

 

This 4 PDH online course is applicable to mechanical and HVAC engineers, process engineers, architects, building designers, contractors, energy auditors, facility managers who are involved in the design and installation of HVAC for oil and gas facilities.
