Presenter 1 will give the audience an overview of a case study and lessons learned from the design, commissioning and operation of local hazardous exhaust ventilation systems for an offshore oil & gas production facility. Presenter 2 will review Enclosed vs. Enclosure-Less Dust Collectors. When can Enclosure-Less collectors be used in the workspace and what are the benefits? Who makes that determination? Presenter 3 will review challenges of using natural ventilation in hazardous environments in large buildings.   Freeze up Issues in winter months (ice and snow at intake louvers) and overheating issues (60°C) during the summer months while trying to maintain 3 air change per hour of continuous ventilation.

Ventilation for Airborne Infection Risk Mitigation – What We’ve Learned from the Covid-19 Pandemic

Guidance for engineering controls to reduce exposure of building occupants to infectious aerosols has focused heavily on increasing outdoor air flow rates, upgrading filter efficiencies, and addition of standalone filtration and disinfection technologies. Less attention has been devoted to air distribution, however, there is a growing awareness of its significance. This presentation will consider a number of important ways in which well-conceived air distribution can enhance the effectiveness of a risk mitigation strategy and how future HVAC system designs may change as a result.
