Advanced Lab Application and Design Workshop with Greenheck and Antec

Join the Buckley, Antec Controls, and the Greenheck Engineering teams for a four-part virtual workshop series focused on the design of critical lab spaces.

Course Objectives:To provide advanced HVAC design training for lab spaces. Focus on control strategies for exhaust fan systems, venturi vales, and room pressurization. This 4-part series is intended to be an advanced training session and participants should understand basic room pressurization theory, Fume hood basics and temperature control sequences for these applications. Please forward this to anyone on your team or in your network that you believe could benefit from these sessions.

Session 1: Precision Airflow Control Devices

Agenda:
  • Identify a device as a high accuracy terminal or a venturi valve
  • Identify the unique differences of different venturi valves and high accuracy terminal units in the market
  • Identify the design and operational features of different venturi valves and high accuracy terminal units in the market
  • Apply venturi valves and high accuracy terminal to critical space design

12pm-1pm or 3pm-4pm

Session 3: Room Pressurization Solutions for Critical Spaces

Agenda:
  • Understand the difference between open loop and closed loop controls
  • Determine what type of control loop a given air valve technology uses
