Course Description

100-HVAC Design - Industrial Ventilation

This course is intended for mechanical engineers who want to learn more about Industrial Ventilation. This course qualifies for one (1) hour Professional Engineering CEU credit. Industrial ventilation design issues covered include refrigeration machine room ventilation, battery room ventilation, and warehouse ventilation & heating. Included free with this course are industrial ventilation Excel spreadsheets which are yours to keep and use. Upon completion of this course, you will have a thorough understanding of the design aspects related to industrial ventilation.

The course is divided up into three parts; ventilation for machine rooms, battery rooms, and warehouse space. The machine room segment covers the various code requirements which govern machine room ventilation. This section looks at the calculations for offsetting the refrigeration equipment heat, determining the code-required emergency ventilation rate, as well as winter heating requirements. Cost-effective machine room design templates for both warm and cool climates are reviewed in detail including mechanical diagrams.

The battery room section explains the code requirements which pertain to battery room ventilation. The calculation for hydrogen concentration is reviewed in detail, as well as the recommended placement of supply and return ductwork. The third and final part of the course covers warehouse ventilation and heating. This section begins by discussing the various options for warehouse ventilation and includes helpful mechanical diagrams. Recommended ventilation rates are discussed and flow rate calculations are covered. The course concludes with the different types of warehouse heating systems including capacity calculation methods.

Calculation spreadsheets are included for every segment of this course. The spreadsheets are yours to keep upon completion of this course. The material covered in HVAC Design — Industrial Ventilation is a valuable resource that no design professional should be without.

Am very satisfied with this course. The materials are useful for actual design. However I think in the opening paragraph if the author really intended to use the acronym "CEU" instead of "PDH."

This was actually one of the most useful and challenging CPD courses I have taken here. It has interesting, real-world type problems. I had a hard time with this in school, and this software really makes a difference. I am sure I will use the software a lot in future work.

Very informative for non mechanical engineers. I suggest that some material (if any) on ventilation for rooms holding compressors handling natural gas/digester gas be added.

Thanks,

This is a very good course that summarizes the basic Code requirements and calculations for design of industrial ventilation for warehouses, battery rooms and machine rooms. The student will also need to know basic HVAC calculations required to calculate the heating loads and to find the ASHRAE climate data for the location of the facility.

The course was pretty straight forward, however, I don't believe the answer to the 'hydrogen sensor' test question takes into account that the building code allows you to use a ventilation rate for these rooms without a need to know the concentration of hydrogen.
