Industrial Ventilation

Description

Fundamental knowledge of effective, economical industrial ventilation practices and design techniques through the established principles found in the ACGIH Industrial Ventilation manual. The program will build from standard air flow physics into the development of a complete dust collection system. This program will base all calculations on standard air.

Objectives

To provide a basic fundamental knowledge of industrial ventilation design by the “velocity pressure" method. You will learn to select appropriate exhaust devices and hoods, determine air volume and minimum duct velocity, how to size duct, and system static pressure for fan selection.

Target Audience

This program is intended for plant engineers, industrial hygienists, sales engineers, sheet metal contractors, plant managers, mining engineers, and anyone involved in industrial ventilation system design, maintenance and performance.

Prerequisite

Trainees must bring to class the textbook, Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Design, 29th edition, which needs to be pre-purchased for $119.96 for ACGIH members and $149.95 for non-members. Purchase the most recent edition of the manual here.

Instructor

Andy Thomason, Southeastern Sales Engineer for Camfil APC, is a mechanical engineer with a vast knowledge of fans, dust collection, room pressurization and system design. Andy served 30+ years as an instructor and planning committee member at the Industrial Ventilation Conference in Birmingham, AL.

Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Credits

Credit for this course is 14 Professional Development Hours (PDH). In many states (such as Arkansas), 10 PDH units equate to one (1) CEU. It is trainee's responsibility to follow local State Board guidelines when submitting PDH for CEU credit with the trainee's resident state. Camfil APC will provide documentation of training program content upon request. At the close of training, Camfil APC will provide a certificate of completion indicating: (1) Trainee's name; (2) Training program title and dates; and (3) 14 Professional Develop Hours (PDH) completed.
