PDC: HVAC for the Industrial Hygienist

The HVAC for the Industrial Hygienist PDC is designed to enable the Industrial Hygienist to become more proficient when encountering industrial hygiene issues, such as Indoor Air Quality (IAQ), related to HVAC systems.

Learning Objectives

  • Present and discuss selected HVAC definitions, as well as heat transfer and heat generation fundamentals to establish / confirm a common basic understanding.
  • Explain and discuss the determination of Heating and Cooling loads to identify critical load factors.
  • Review and discuss ASHRAE Standard 62.1 "Ventilation for Acceptable Indoor Air Quality" relative to its application in addressing IAQ problems.
  • Explain and discuss Psychrometrics, "the science that deals with the thermodynamic properties of moist air and the utilization of these properties to analyze conditions and processes involving moist air." The use of the pyschrometric chart will be demonstrated and utilized to identify and determine the values of these thermodynamic properties.
  • Present and discuss the "Vapor Compression Refrigeration Cycle" as integrated into both direct-expansion and chilled water systems.
  • Identify selected commercial, institutional, and industrial HVAC equipment and associated air distribution, as well as air-to-air heat recovery equipment, and discus from an application-operation vantage point.
  • Identify typical Indoor Air Quality problems, associated with HVAC systems that the Industrial Hygienist encounters. From case studies, discuss underlying causes and solution strategies.
