Energy Recovery for Ventilation Air in Laboratories

Credit: 2 PDH Hours
Course Fee: $30.00
10 pages

Course Summary:

Manifolding laboratory exhaust in laboratory buildings provides substantial energy and first-cost savings opportunities when compared to separately ducted, multiple exhaust fans. A manifold system also offers a number of benefits, including: Increased fume dilution , Enhanced personnel safety, Augmented redundancy , Improved design flexibility & Probable energy recovery. Experience has shown that during laboratory retrofit projects, manifold exhaust systems reduce construction costs and help avoid operational disruptions.

This course is one in a series created by the Laboratories for the 21st Century program, a joint program of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and U.S. Department of Energy. Geared towards architects, engineers, and facilities managers, this course provides information about technologies and practices to use in the design, construction, and operation of safe, sustainable, high-performance laboratories.

Learning Objective:

  • Introduction
  • Energy Efficiency and Manifold Exhaust
  • Basic Manifold Design
  • Good Manifold Design Practice
  • Better Manifold Design Practice
  • Manifold Performance Examples
