AMCA: Update on Codes, Standards and Certifications for Severe-Duty Louvers and Fire/Smoke Dampers

The air-systems industry is undergoing tremendous change, especially in the areas of codes, standards, and regulations. Moreover, technologies in these areas are evolving, as are methods engineers use to size, select, and specify equipment. Join AMCA Oct. 23 for a FREE 60-minute webinar including presentations discussing:

  • Changes in the 2019 editions of NFPA 80, Standard for Fire Doors and Other Opening Protectives, and NFPA 105, Standard for Smoke Door Assemblies and Other Opening Protectives, allowing remote periodic testing of life-safety dampers and how remote testing can significantly reduce costs and improve safety.
  • Code requirements for louvers in hurricane-prone regions and how to protect buildings and occupants through specification of third-party-tested and certified products.

Additionally, there will be a short presentation explaining AMCA’s role in the air-systems industry.

Mitsubishi Electric Trane HVAC US - Applying VRF and Third-Party HVAC Systems

Modern construction requirements, sustainability and the rising cost of energy are driving adoption of Variable Refrigerant Flow (VRF) systems in the United States and worldwide. As such, building owners, facility managers and project teams will be responsible for buildings where VRF systems are applied with complementary third-party HVAC equipment. In this presentation, the speakers will discuss how advanced controls and professional services from VRF system manufacturers streamline the integration and management of third-party HVAC systems with high-performing VRF technology.

Objectives:

  • Understand why VRF systems are positioned to be the primary heating and cooling technology.
  • Discuss why VRF systems are applied with existing and complementary HVAC equipment and describe scenarios.
  • Understand how VRF manufacturer controls and services facilitate integration and solve building challenges.

ASHRAE 90.1 – 2016 Energy Standard for Buildings

Scaling Power & Cooling for Digital Growth: Key Takeaways for Controls Relating to ASHRAE 90.1-2016

Session Overview:

We are witnessing an increased shift towards Electrification. As we look to more sustainable, distributed, and connected ways to produce and store energy, we will see a shift toward electricity over traditional fossil fuels as a primary energy source. As a result, we will see an increase in electricity consumption in buildings of 60% over the next 20 years.  ASHRAE 90.1-2016 is the new Energy Standard for Buildings to help reduce this increase in consumption.  Each version was developed to save energy and yet be technically feasible, cost effective, and goes beyond the standard minimum.

In this session we will discuss Engineers’ challenges around customer’s needs and energy & sustainability in relationship to HVAC building controls.  We will also review the differences between the previous ASHRAE 90.1-2013 and the new 2016 standard, as outlined in the Section 6 compliance flowchart.  We will review key sections and the changes that affect not only HVAC building controls but also electrical systems in Sections 8 & 9, to improve energy savings and sustainability.

A certificate of completion will be available for downloading at the end of the webinar. This webinar is not registered, so please check with your jurisdiction regarding obtaining credit for attending this webinar.

Intellihot - Is ASSE-1017 & Legionella your worst enemy? Go tankless

Webinar Description:
Join us for a webinar to learn how the new ASSE Standards will allow you to eliminate costly and unreliable mixing valves, while significantly reducing the risk of Legionella.


Presenter: Sri Deivasigamani, Intellihot Co-founder & CEO

Sridhar (Sri) Deivasigamani didn't set out to create the first on-demand hot water heater. But, after returning home from a 30-hour flight only to find his basement completely flooded from a broken water heater, he knew a worthy challenge when he saw it. After mopping up the basement, the robotics engineer immediately started troubleshooting his water heater. By sunrise, he had the idea for what would become the first on-demand, tankless commercial water heater. Today, Intellihot boasts several large-scale clients including Levi's® Stadium, home of the San Francisco 49ers, 340 on the Park, Chicago's second tallest residential building, and Hilton Hotels. Prior to founding Intellihot, Sri spent ten years at Caterpillar as a mechanical engineer with a focus on marine engines and control systems. He holds a bachelor's degree from Manipal Institute of Technology, India and a master's degree in Mechanical Engineering from Clemson University. Sri envisions a future of extraordinary efficiency, where not a watt of energy or drop of water is wasted. In his spare time, he likes to work on motorcycles and robotic lawnmowers.

Hydronic Piping with PEX: Pros and Pitfalls

Description

While the use of cross-linked polyethylene (PEX) piping has been widespread in residential applications for several decades, building owners, contractors and engineers are moving towards it as a cost-effective and flexible alternative to conventional metallic piping systems on large-scale commercial projects. PEX has become a proven system solution that can reduce both material and labor costs while providing the reli­ability and peace of mind that building owners demand. When considering PEX, however, it is important that contractors and engineers understand not only the benefits, but also the challenges and potential pitfalls.

This webinar will examine the following:

  • What is PEX?
  • PEX types for commercial applications
  • Advantages of PEX compared to conventional metallic systems
  • How a PEX design differs from a metallic pipe design

Common design and installation best practices

Sizing Pumps for Cooling Towers

Webinar Description:  In this webinar, you will learn to correctly select the pump types and then size them for cooling tower applications in commercial buildings, industrial, and other applications. Should you choose a split case, vertical turbine, end suction, vertical inline multistage or other pump type? What determines the flow rate required? How is the pumping head to be calculated? How do we avoid NPSH and cavitation issues and other suction problems such as vortexing and imbalanced suction inlet flow? Also discussed will be choice of proper controls to assure that the pump is operating in allowable areas of its curve and that the pumping system is operating with the greatest possible efficiency and the lowest possible overall Life Cycle Costs, including a reduction in the need for cleaning and maintenance of the tower.

Evaluating High Rise Pressure Boosting System Types

Description: 

When selecting pressure boosting systems for high rise buildings, designers are faced with a few decisions that can impact installation, operational and subsequently the overall life cycle cost of the pumping system. Configurations can be as simple as a single pressure booster supplying the entire building or more complex with multi-tiered systems supplying water to different zones of the building.  This webinar will present some different approaches to pressure boosting system design and configuration and will evaluate operational costs of each which will allow for designers to make more informed decisions during the design process.

Objectives:

  • Identify the basic components that make up a pressure boosting system
  • Describe system configurations that are possible for high rise buildings
  • Explain how the different system types can affect construction costs
  • Evaluate annual energy usage between the different systems
  • Quantify in general terms the differences in maintenance costs between the different system types​

Control Strategies for Radiant Heating and Cooling Systems

Radiant heating and cooling systems have been proven as an effective strategy for reducing building energy usage while maintaining optimum thermal occupant comfort. These systems are designed to provide sensible heating and cooling capacities based on a number of variables, such as surface temperature, space temperature, and operating water temperatures. Effectively controlling these variables, in concert with the balance of the HVAC system, is critical for optimum system performance and occupant satisfaction. This webinar will cover the fundamentals of radiant heating and cooling design, control and operation.

Topics will include:

  • Factors that impact system capacity and performance
  • Controlling operating water temperature
  • Control system components
  • Sequences of operations
