Heating, Ventilation, and Air Conditioning (HVAC) in a Regulated Environment

This is a three-day course designed to provide individuals with an in depth understanding of the design, balancing, commissioning, operation and maintenance of HVAC systems in a regulated environment. The course consists of lectures and imbedded exercises. Participants will also be placed in several real life situations such as completing a compliance review of floor plans and air flow diagrams, room pressurization schemes, ductwork design, and air balance reports; conducting emergency egress analysis during a system failure; HVAC risk assessment; and change control analysis including the impact of modifications requested by the end user.

The course is designed to provide the attendee with thorough knowledge of the following topics:

  • The governing regulatory agencies with direct impact on HVAC systems
  • FDA and EU classified space comparison
  • What constitutes Good Engineering Practice
  • The major components of an HVAC system
  • A high level overview of Psychrometrics
  • The engineering and design process
  • Latent and sensible loads
  • Types of systems – application and operation
  • Energy conservation measures and their impact on system performance
  • Ventilation requirements
  • Control set points and alarms
  • Air balancing – cascading air flows and room pressurization
  • Risk assessment for HVAC
  • Air filtration – from bird screens to terminal HEPA filters
  • Sources of air particle contamination
  • Room air-change rates – ISO standards
  • Room recovery period versus air change rates
  • Sterility versus containment
  • Humidity and temperature set points – range of control and tolerances
  • Instrument calibration – critical, non-critical, and informational
  • Maintenance impacts to system performance, reliability, and validation
  • Partnering with the system owner to obtain funding for major repairs, upgrades or wholesale replacement
  • Personnel safety and egress considerations
  • The importance of as-built documentation – user and field directed changes
  • The engineering turnover package (ETOP) and commissioning
