Control of Smoke and Fire in Ventilation Systems


Low energy VAV (variable air volume) systems and demand based ventilation systems

VAV systems in relation to good indoor air quality and COVID-19

Constant pressure ductwork systems

VAV and the lowest energy buildings

Comfort in the indoor

The 6 factors controlling thermal comfort, the PMV and PPD, draught rating, asymmetric temperature difference, glare index, design and modelling to guarantee thermal comfort.

Comfort in the Indoor Environment

Ventilation systems

Displacement and mixing ventilation, natural, mechanical and mixed-mode ventilation, chilled beams and fan coil units, VRF-, VRV- and VAV-based ventilation systems.

Ventilation system

Improvement of building efficiency through optimised design and correct integration of ventilation system components – air handling units, chillers, ducting, dampers, terminal units and control methods. Finding a balance between energy efficiency, capital investment, industry regulations and comfort.

Low energy offices, hospitals
and cleanrooms

A closer look at comfort, air quality, energy efficiency and regulatory compliance with a focus on some important and common building types.

Commercial kitchen ventilation systems

Reducing energy consumption, maintenance costs and the risk of fire. Filtration systems. EcoKitchen and OCEAN for EcoKitchen systems.

Swimming pool

Swimming pool ventilation requirements, minimising and preventing corrosion, energy optimisation, humidity control.

Hospital ventilation

Requirements for hospital ventilation based on HTM 03-01 (specialised ventilation for healthcare premises), HTM 05-02 (fire code), operating theatre ventilation models, HEPA filtration.

Air handling unit construction and performance

Air filtration, fan and motor efficiency, specific fan power, heating, and cooling, humidification and dehumidification, energy recovery methods. Factory acceptance testing, assuring performance via Eurovent and EN 1886, HTM air handling unit requirements.

Air Handling Unit Construction and Performance

Optimised chiller performance and lifespan

Refrigerant use, energy reduction, Energy Efficiency Ratio (EER) and European Seasonal Energy Efficiency Ratio (ESEER), circuits, compressors types, ISO 50001.

CDM – commissioning, demonstration and maintenance

Commissioning protocols, post-occupancy evaluation, maintenance
requirements for life-critical systems, factory acceptance testing of air handling units, recommended maintenance intervals and procedures.
