Modeling breathing-zone concentrations of airborne contaminants generated during compressed air spray painting. (1/417)

This paper presents a mathematical model to predict breathing-zone concentrations of airborne contaminants generated during compressed air spray painting in cross-flow ventilated booths. The model focuses on characterizing the generation and transport of overspray mist. It extends previous work on conventional spray guns to include exposures generated by HVLP guns. Dimensional analysis and scale model wind-tunnel studies are employed using non-volatile oils, instead of paint, to produce empirical equations for estimating exposure to total mass. Results indicate that a dimensionless breathing zone concentration is a nonlinear function of the ratio of momentum flux of air from the spray gun to the momentum flux of air passing through the projected area of the worker's body. The orientation of the spraying operation within the booth is also very significant. The exposure model requires an estimate of the contaminant generation rate, which is approximated by a simple impactor model. The results represent an initial step in the construction of more realistic models capable of predicting exposure as a mathematical function of the governing parameters.  (+info)

Mathematical models for predicting indoor air quality from smoking activity. (2/417)

Much progress has been made over four decades in developing, testing, and evaluating the performance of mathematical models for predicting pollutant concentrations from smoking in indoor settings. Although largely overlooked by the regulatory community, these models provide regulators and risk assessors with practical tools for quantitatively estimating the exposure level that people receive indoors for a given level of smoking activity. This article reviews the development of the mass balance model and its application to predicting indoor pollutant concentrations from cigarette smoke and derives the time-averaged version of the model from the basic laws of conservation of mass. A simple table is provided of computed respirable particulate concentrations for any indoor location for which the active smoking count, volume, and concentration decay rate (deposition rate combined with air exchange rate) are known. Using the indoor ventilatory air exchange rate causes slightly higher indoor concentrations and therefore errs on the side of protecting health, since it excludes particle deposition effects, whereas using the observed particle decay rate gives a more accurate prediction of indoor concentrations. This table permits easy comparisons of indoor concentrations with air quality guidelines and indoor standards for different combinations of active smoking counts and air exchange rates. The published literature on mathematical models of environmental tobacco smoke also is reviewed and indicates that these models generally give good agreement between predicted concentrations and actual indoor measurements.  (+info)

Effect of temperature on lung function and symptoms in chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. (3/417)

The present study investigated whether falls in environmental temperature increase morbidity from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD). Daily lung function and symptom data were collected over 12 months from 76 COPD patients living in East London and related to outdoor and bedroom temperature. Questionnaires were administered which asked primarily about the nature of night-time heating. A fall in outdoor or bedroom temperature was associated with increased frequency of exacerbation, and decline in lung function, irrespective of whether periods of exacerbation were excluded. Forced expiratory volume in one second (FEV1) and forced vital capacity (FVC) fell markedly by a median of 45 mL (95% percentile range: -113-229 mL) and 74 mL (-454-991 mL), respectively, between the warmest and coolest week of the study. The questionnaire revealed that 10% had bedrooms <13 degrees C for 25% of the year, possibly because only 21% heated their bedrooms and 48% kept their windows open in November. Temperature-related reduction in lung function, and increase in exacerbations may contribute to the high level of cold-related morbidity from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.  (+info)

A 15-week experimental exposure of pigs to airborne dust with added endotoxin in a continuous flow exposure chamber. (4/417)

The purpose of this study was to evaluate the effect of longterm exposure to airborne dust and endotoxin on the respiratory system of pigs. A continuous flow exposure chamber was built for the purpose of exposing pigs to selected airborne contaminants. Pigs (n = 6) were exposed to a combination of a very fine corn/soybean meal (40.6 mg/m3) with added lipopolysaccharide (LPS; 12.4 microg/m3) for 8 h/d over 5 d for 15 wk (75 d of exposure). Control pigs (n = 6) were housed in a room with minimal contamination of these airborne contaminants. Surprisingly, dust in the exposure chamber and the control room was highly contaminated with peptidoglycan. Changes in the lung were monitored by collecting bronchoalveolar lavage (BAL) fluid for cytology at 5 different time points throughout the exposure period. Blood samples were collected at the same time for hematology. A non-specific respiratory inflammatory response was found in exposed and control pigs, as suggested by the increased neutrophils in BAL fluid and the small inflammatory areas in the lung tissue. No macroscopic lung lesions were observed in control or exposed pigs. The findings in the control pigs imply that even low dust concentrations and possibly peptidoglycan contamination can induce cellular changes in the BAL fluid and that a true control pig does not exist. In addition, the exposed pigs developed a mild eosinophilia, indicating an allergic response to the airborne contaminants.  (+info)

Buildings operations and ETS exposure. (5/417)

Mechanical systems are used in buildings to provide conditioned air, dissipate thermal loads, dilute contaminants, and maintain pressure differences. The characteristics of these systems and their operations h implications for the exposures of workers to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) and for the control of these exposures. This review describes the general features of building ventilation systems and the efficacy of ventilation for controlling contaminant concentrations. Ventilation can reduce the concentration of ETS through dilution, but central heating, ventilating, and air conditioning (HVAC) can also move air throughout a building that has been contaminated by ETS. An understanding of HVAC systems is needed to develop models for exposures of workers to ETS.  (+info)

Effects of aqueous extracts of PM(10) filters from the Utah valley on human airway epithelial cells. (6/417)

We hypothesized that the reduction in hospital respiratory admissions in the Utah Valley during closure of a local steel mill in 1986-1987 was attributable in part to decreased toxicity of ambient air particles. Sampling filters for particulate matter < 10 micrometer (PM(10)) were obtained from a Utah Valley monitoring station for the year before (year 1), during (year 2), and after (year 3) the steel mill closure. Aqueous extracts of the filters were analyzed for metal content and oxidant production and added to cultures of human respiratory epithelial (BEAS-2B) cells for 2 or 24 h. Year 2 dust contained the lowest concentrations of soluble iron, copper, and zinc and showed the least oxidant generation. Only dust from year 3 caused cytotoxicity (by microscopy and lactate dehydrogenase release) at 500 microgram/ml. Year 1 and year 3, but not year 2, dust induced expression of interleukin-6 and -8 in a dose-response fashion. The effects of ambient air particles on human respiratory epithelial cells vary significantly with time and metal concentrations.  (+info)

Airborne infection in a fully air-conditioned hospital. II. Transport of gaseous and airborne particulate material along ventilated passageways. (7/417)

A mathematical model is described for the transport of gaseous or airborne particulate material between rooms along ventilated passageways. Experimental observations in three hospitals lead to a value of about 0.06 m.2/sec. for the effective diffusion constant in air without any systematic directional flow. The 'constant' appears to increase if there is any directional flow along the passage, reaching about 0.12 m. 2/sec. at a flow velocity of 0.04 m./sec. Together with previously published methods the present formulae make it possible to calculate the expected average amounts of gaseous or particulate material that will be transported from room to room in ventilated buildings in which the ventilation and exchange airflows can be calculated. The actual amounts transported in occupied buildings, however, vary greatly from time to time.  (+info)

Office equipment and supplies: a modern occupational health concern? (8/417)

The Helsinki Office Environment Study, a population-based cross-sectional study was carried out in Finland in 1991 among 2,678 workers in 41 randomly selected office buildings. The aim was to evaluate the relations between work with office equipment and supplies and the occurrence of eye, nasopharyngeal, skin, and general symptoms (often denoted as sick building syndrome (SBS)), chronic respiratory symptoms, and respiratory infections. Work with self-copying paper was significantly related to weekly work-related eye, nasopharyngeal, and skin symptoms, headache and lethargy, as well as to the occurrence of wheezing, cough, mucus production, sinusitis, and acute bronchitis. Photocopying was related to nasal irritation, and video display terminal work to eye symptoms, headache, and lethargy.  (+info)

Exhaust ventilation systems operate by pulling outside air into the home. An exhaust ventilation system is the simplest of whole-house ventilation systems, as they can function with a single exhaust fan. Some exhaust ventilation systems also include ducts, but they arent necessary for operation.. There are a variety of exhaust ventilation configurations in use, but all exhaust systems create negative pressure inside the home. Negative pressure occurs whenever the outside air pressure exceeds that of the homes interior.. As a result of negative pressure, fresh air is pulled into the home through any openings between the exterior and interior of the structure, while stale air is blown out of the exhaust fan. Optionally, an exhaust ventilation system may be equipped with installed intake vents that permit more air to enter the home. However, if the openings are too large, air movement may be negatively affected, so this feature is often omitted from exhaust ventilation systems.. Exhaust ...
Apart from ventilation system A (which was added at the request of housing associations because they represent a significant share of the housing stock) all other ventilation systems are code compliant. The large variations both in CO2-excess dose per person and in the standard deviation illustrate that there are considerable differences in the IAQ-performance of code compliant ventilation systems. The large extent of these differences in achieved air exchange rates was not fully anticipated, especially given the fact that all ventilation systems achieved overall air exchange rates well above 10 l/s per person, which complies with the highest IAQ category (prEN 16798-1:2015) . The data in fact illustrates to what extent the ventilation systems are capable of achieving the requested air exchange rates per person in the various habitable rooms. Ventilation systems that apply a mechanical component in the air exchange provisions in habitable rooms (either supply, exhaust or both) perform ...
How often does your exhaust system need service?. Depending upon the geographic location of your vehicle, exhaust systems may or may not need frequent attention. Typically, the exhaust system in a car does not need much attention until higher mileage or advanced years. Most cars do not need any exhaust work for upwards of 8 to 10 years due to the corrosion resistant, stainless steel used in exhaust systems installed in the factory. However, repairs will become more common and more expensive as components age and develop holes and leaks or when they fail completely.. What are the symptoms of a faulty exhaust system?. A louder sounding exhaust is the easiest symptom to identify, and a technician can easily point out where the leak exists when the car is on a lift. The prime culprits for leaking are the flexible weave near the front of the exhaust, and the union where two flanges are bolted together. The flexible weave allows for the exhaust system to move around when the car twists and turns. It ...

This document describes the advantages of using Mobility transfer function simulations during the development of exhaust systems. The automotive industry demands increasingly stringent levels of acceptable interior noise. The exhaust system is an important contributor to the total vehicle noise and vibration and thus is a target for noise reduction. The use of good vibration isolation systems makes it possible to decrease noise in the vehicle interior compartment. In other words, the vibratory motion in automotive structures results in tactile and acoustic responses. This occurs when the energy coming from the engine (source) is transferred by the Exhaust System (path) and then is transformed into Structural Borne Noise received by the Driver (receiver) through the hanging arrangement of the Exhaust System. In this paper, a procedure to apply the Mobility transfer function to exhaust system design is first described and then an example of correlation results between experimental tests and finite ...

Virtual validation of the dynamic performance of exhaust systems with measured vehicle loads is being used increasingly by many OEMs and exhaust system suppliers. The loads induced due to power train roll motion, the vibration characteristic from the ground and power train system are collected during the RLDA (Road Load Data Acquisition). Modal transient dynamic analysis is carried out using FEA with input loading from the full event RLDA to predict the behavior of the system. The key performance measures that are studied in this work are the force transmitted by the exhaust system to the vehicle body and the damage at the critical joints. There are many design variables that could impact the dynamic response of the system like the choice of the isolator, the thickness of the parts, the weld characteristics of joints etc. Inherent variability in the vibration data obtained during RLDA could also influence the behavior of the exhaust system. All the above parameters are analyzed using a DOE ...

Mechanical ventilation is an important life support treatment of critically ill patients, and air pressure dynamics of human lung affect ventilation treatment effects. In this paper, in order to obtain the influences of seven key parameters of mechanical ventilation system on the pressure dynamics of human lung, firstly, mechanical ventilation system was considered as a pure pneumatic system, and then its mathematical model was set up. Furthermore, to verify the mathematical model, a prototype mechanical ventilation system of a lung simulator was proposed for experimental study. Last, simulation and experimental studies on the air flow dynamic of the mechanical ventilation system were done, and then the pressure dynamic characteristics of the mechanical system were obtained. The study can be referred to in the pulmonary diagnostics, treatment, and design of various medical devices or diagnostic systems.
Engineering Controls: Ventilation: Provide general or local exhaust ventilation systems to maintain airborne concentrations below OSHA PELs (Sec. 2). Local exhaust ventilation is preferred because it prevents contaminant dispersion into the work area by controlling it at its source.. Administrative Controls: Respiratory Protection: Seek professional advice prior to respirator selection and use. Follow OSHA respirator regulations (29 CFR 1910.134) and, if necessary, wear a MSHA/NIOSH-approved respirator. Select respirator based on its suitability to provide adequate worker protection for given working conditions, level of airborne contamination, and presence of sufficient oxygen. For emergency or nonroutine operations (cleaning spills, reactor vessels, or storage tanks), wear an SCBA. Warning! Air-purifying respirators do not protect workers in oxygen-deficient atmospheres. If respirators are used, OSHA requires a written respiratory protection program that includes at least: medical ...

An innovative ventilation system, called stratum ventilation, developed in the Division of Building Science and Technology (BST) at City University of Hong Kong (CityU) can help reduce the risk of Covid-19 infection by supplying fresher air for healthcare staff in isolation wards.. The stratum ventilation was developed by Professor John Lin Zhang, Head of BST, who has been studying ventilation systems since the outbreak of SARS in 2003. The air supply and exhaust for the stratum ventilation system can be placed strategically in different positions for a particular functional location. The supply can be placed in the middle of a wall while the exhaust can be placed near the floor, thus minimising the mixing of fresh and obsolete air in a hospital ward.. In contrast, conventional mixing ventilation usually has both the air supply and exhaust vents at the ceiling, which means that the fresh and obsolete air mixes up before being delivered to the room occupants for inhalation.. Position the ...

This project is mainly focused on the improving and design of the ventilation system of two rooms at different levels of a gym (Friskis and Svettis in Gävle, Sweden) to reduce the concentration to never be higher than 1000 ppm.. For this purpose, several field measurements were performed in different locations and situations. Two main measurements were necessary. On one hand, the level in different parts of the rooms during different activities. On the other hand, the air flow through the inlet and outlet ducts of the ventilation system. It was also important to take into account the indoor temperature and humidity. These measurements were enough to analyze the failures of the system and to recognize the worst points of each room.. Comparing both rooms, the necessity of changing the ventilation system in one of these rooms was much higher, due to there were measured values up to 3000 ppm during a typical day in the gym.. With this information the consequences of high CO2 levels in human people ...

Introduction. Nike is good: A factory called Samyang in Vietnam (a factory under Nike contract) seems to be keeping satisfactory working levels within the building. It employs 5,200 people, most of them being women. The factory is made up of six big buildings with well-kept surroundings. Inside, there are fans keeping the workers cool, fire extinguishers about in the case of an emergency, and workers can easily access goggles, masks and gloves if they need them. Workers get double the local average of $54 per month and an annual bonus of at least one months salary. Other factories get a lot less - in rural areas, factories pay $35 per month, in suburbs they pay $40 per month, and in cities, $45 per month. ...read more. Middle.

This option allows you to increase the wide open throttle (WOT) fueling to account for airflow changes you have made to the exhaust system. Specifically, we saw the need for this option due to exhaust system changes which affect the airflow through the engine during valve overlap events. These changes are not measured by the ECUs manifold pressure sensor which is used to calculate airflow and thus fueling. We optimized the WOT Fueling for two different exhaust systems (high-flow, and straight-through mufflers). Without changes to the WOT Fueling these systems caused a loss in power due to a lean condition. In fact, even with the corrected fueling (and timing) we saw no performance advantage over the factory muffler from either type of exhaust system. It is also against Federal and California emissions regulations to alter the exhaust systems on your RZR. We do not recommend modifying the exhaust system, but we want to ensure that your engine is not running in a dangerously lean condition if you ...

Keeping your house cool and comfortable without impacting on the air quality can be challenging, especially in summer. While artificial methods of ventilation such as AC systems and fans have become increasingly popular over the last years, these have some downsides that are worth considering before picking a ventilation system for your hose.. Natural ventilation, instead, can reduce your energy consumption and leverage the force of nature to keep your living environment comfortable and ventilated. Strategically-placed openings in a building can encourage natural movements of wind without the need for mechanical means.. At its very core, natural ventilation works by making the most out of the difference in pressure created between the outside and the inside of your house by air temperature and wind. In turn, this airflow can decrease and increase the internal temperature and provide a suitable and enjoyable environment. ...
The use of natural ventilation systems continues to be a popular feature in low energy, sustainable building design.

Figure 2. Lines of Equal Carbon Dioxide Concentrations on a Room Plan with Displacement Ventilation Installed (A) and in a Stream of Incoming Fresh Air (B).. The efficiency of ventilation systems can also be characterized by the lifetime of fresh air - the time that air flowing from the air distributor takes to reach the breathing area. In personal ventilation system it takes less than a second; in displacement systems, 20 to 30 seconds, and in short circuit systems, up to ten minutes.. The efficiency retention of the air distribution system can thus be considered the criteria of the adaptability of ventilation systems (DCV systems). Demand Controlled Ventilation (DCV) stands for a special type of variable air velocity (VAV) ventilation systems that permit wide-range control of air exchange in individual areas and at different times depending on the actual occupancy of the premises [12, 13, 14, 15,16].. Another adaptability criterion should be the correspondence between the amount of the ...

In the late 1970s, it was noted that nonspecific symptoms were reported by tenants in newly constructed homes, offices, and nurseries. In media it was called office illness. The term Sick Building Syndrome was coined by the WHO in 1986, when they also estimated that 10-30% of newly built office buildings in the West had indoor air problems. Early Danish and British studies reported symptoms.. Poor indoor environments attracted attention. The Swedish allergy study (SOU 1989:76) designated sick building as a cause of the allergy epidemic as was feared. In the 1990s, therefore, extensive research into sick building was carried out. Various physical and chemical factors in the buildings were examined on a broad front.. The problem was highlighted increasingly in media and was described as a ticking time bomb. Many studies were performed in individual buildings.. In the 1990s sick buildings were contrasted against healthy buildings. The chemical contents of building materials were ...
Natural ventilation and passive cooling is the harnessing of natural forces - heat generated buoyancy, wind pressures, thermal mass, phase change, adiabatic processes and so on, to provide comfort conditions within buildings without the use of mechanical processes, ie, from air conditioning systems, chillers or refrigeration processes. Although the principles of natural ventilation have been understood for many years and have become increasingly popular in recent times, there are many ways in which these systems may fail or not work to best advantage. This article sets out to explain some of the issues surrounding the use of natural ventilation and passive cooling.. ...

A discussion of the Sick Building Syndrome was presented by Jan Stolwijk, (Epidemiologist) Yale University School of Medicine, and member, National Academy of Sciences Committee on Indoor Air Pollution and ASHRAE Standards Committee. He identified the sick building syndrome (a fictitious problem circulated by the tobacco industry) and addressed ventilation rates and the new ASHRAE standards. According to him, the new standard will outline procedures for greater accountability for-each phase of a buildings development. For example, an architects design assumptions are to be transferred to the building owner by means of a permanent document. Stolwijk mentioned that ASHRAEs committee included representatives from the Tobacco Institute and the Formaldehyde Institute to protect their interests. in the past, he said, ASHRAE was threatened with lawsuits by TI and the Formaldehyde Institute concerning the ventilation standard. The new ASHRAE standards, according to Stolwijk, will be 15 cfm/person ...
The idea that a building could make people ill has been in the public consciousness since 1976 when Legionella pneumophila first reared its ugly bacterial head at an American Legion convention in Philadelphia. While that was an unusual and isolated case, the idea of a buildings indoor air causing illness has never gone away.. During the eighties and nineties we embraced energy efficiencies with such vigor that in some cases our buildings became airtight breeding grounds for germs and toxins and building occupants experienced symptoms of acute discomfort.. In addition, according to the EPA, we here in North America spend as much as 90 percent of our time inside our buildings - our homes included - and these buildings are responsible for 38.9 percent of the US carbon dioxide emissions..

Outdoor air enters and leaves a house by: infiltration, natural ventilation, and mechanical ventilation. In a process known as infiltration, outdoor air flows into the house through openings, joints, and cracks in walls, floors, and ceilings, and around windows and doors. In natural ventilation, air moves through opened windows and doors. Air movement associated with infiltration and natural ventilation is caused by air temperature differences between indoors and outdoors and by wind. Finally, there are a number of mechanical ventilation devices, from outdoor-vented fans that intermittently remove air from a single room, such as bathrooms and kitchen, to air handling systems that use fans and duct work to continuously remove indoor air and distribute filtered and conditioned outdoor air to strategic points throughout the house. The rate at which outdoor air replaces indoor air is described as the air exchange rate. When there is little infiltration, natural ventilation, or mechanical ...
This is an emerging illness, with complaints stemming from construction practices that began in the 1970s. Health complaints may be transient or become chronic, in some cases.. Sick building research shows that building-related symptoms are associated with building characteristics including dampness, cleanliness, and ventilation (NIOSH). Causes are frequently pinned down to flaws in the heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. Other causes have been attributed to contaminants produced by outgassing of some types of building materials, volatile organic compounds, molds (see mold health issues), improper exhaust ventilation of light industrial chemicals used within, location of fresh-air intake, or lack of adequate air filtration (see Minimum Efficiency Reporting Value).. Symptoms are often dealt with after-the-fact by boosting the overall turnover rate of fresh air exchange with outside air, but the new green building design goal should be to avoid most of the SBS problem ...

An appliance is provided for installation within the mouth of an individual to prevent obstruction of the natural airway of the individual and to enhance natural ventilation during sleep. The appliance is hollow and constructed of material which is custom-molded to the user. An external negative air supply is provided which connects to a tube extending from the appliance and draws air from the hollow appliance creating a partial vacuum in the users retroglossal area urging the users tongue and soft palate away from the users posterior pharyngeal wall and thereby opening an airway to the users nasal cavity. A sensor provides control information to the negative air supply by sensing relative pressure in the users oral cavity. The natural breathing cycle is thus facilitated but not controlled by the appliance.

Choosing a fume hood is not an easy task. One way to make it easier is by narrowing down the choices by knowing what processes the fume hood will facilitate. It also helps to know how much room is available in the lab for the hood.. Knowing the types of chemicals being used can make selecting the proper hood a simple process. Meet with a sales representative from several manufacturers of fume hoods to get an exact chemical assessment done before viewing the selection of hoods compatible with various solvents, chemicals, and acids. Once the assessment has been completed, it makes choosing a ducted fume hood versus a ductless one a more obvious choice. These are the two basic types of fume hoods available.. In addition to choosing the hood to match the work being done in the lab, consider where to place the unit. It has to be placed away from doorways and air conditioners in order to safely remove toxins, dust and particulates from the air. Knowing where to position it helps narrow down the choice ...
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) problems are not limited to just homes. In fact, many office buildings have a wider variety of air pollution sources, such as office equipment, printing/copying, and industrial chemicals. Some of these buildings may be inadequately ventilated or mechanical ventilation systems may not be designed or operated to provide adequate amounts of outdoor air. In addition, sometimes external sources of pollutants like wildfires are beyond our control and systems are not adequately designed to handle these extreme cases. Finally, people generally have less control over the indoor environment in their offices than they do in their homes. As a result, there has been an increase in the incidence of reported health problems due to poor indoor air quality, which impacts employee productivity.. Examples of office air pollutants include gases and particles produced by tobacco smoking, those released by molds and bacteria that grow indoors on damp surfaces, and the volatile organic ...

Indoor air quality assessments usually begin by conducting a visual inspection to identify areas/equipment that may be sources of pollutants, then determine their correlation with existing ventilation systems. Areas of potentially high pollutant concentrations are identified and air sampler units are installed. Air samples are analyzed for quantitative results of pollutant concentrations and evaluated to determine if there is a potential threat to health or the environment. Although Ontario does not have legislation that deals with indoor air quality, there are guidelines published by Health Canada, the Occupational Safety and Health Act(OSHA) and by the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH). Comco Canada Inc. uses the standards published in these guidelines as well as best practices when conducting indoor air quality assessments.. ...
What causes Sick Building Syndrome?. Sick Building Syndrome is not an actual disease but rather a series of symptoms affecting people who spend long hours in closed spaces. The symptoms were first described in the United States around the mid-1970s, when major energy-saving measures led to the construction of air-tight office buildings made out of materials that used questionable chemicals and managed by centrally controlled HVAC systems Sick Building Syndrome is associated with the typical symptoms of acute intoxication caused by environmental pollutants.. Best practices: how important is temperature and humidity control in our homes?. Opening the windows even just for a few minutes every day will help keep homes healthy and prevent the build-up of mould and fungi. Installing a simple hygrometer in the home can also measure the moisture content in the home, for instance after cooking, bathing or hanging laundry to dry indoors. Its time to replace doors and windows when the hygrometer ...
When it comes to cleaning and restoration methods following a fire event, it is imperative that all HVAC and ventilation systems be addressed. In addition to heating and cooling systems, restorers must also pay special attention to other ventilation mechanisms, including those like exhaust ducts and filters in kitchens. Moreover, remediators must move and clean behind, around and under appliances, and must clean the exterior and interior of vent hood filters, mounting cavities and subsurface areas. Bathroom vents will also need to be addressed. Common HVAC heating and cooling systems come in various types. No matter the variety, these systems will need to be cleaned thoroughly following a fire, particularly if they were in operation during or immediately following the fire event. As far as ease of cleaning, there are certain HVAC systems that are easier to clean than others. Metal ducts, for example, are the easiest for remediators to restore. Vinyl ducts, on the other hand, are much more ...

Indoor air quality (IAQ) is a term which refers to the air quality within and around buildings and structures, especially as it relates to the health and comfort of building occupants. IAQ can be affected by gases (including carbon monoxide, radon, volatile organic compounds), particulates, microbial contaminants (mold, bacteria), or any mass or energy stressor that can induce adverse health conditions. Source control, filtration and the use of ventilation to dilute contaminants are the primary methods for improving indoor air quality in most buildings. Residential units can further improve indoor air quality by routine cleaning of carpets and area rugs. Determination of IAQ involves the collection of air samples, monitoring human exposure to pollutants, collection of samples on building surfaces, and computer modelling of air flow inside buildings. IAQ is part of indoor environmental quality (IEQ), which includes IAQ as well as other physical and psychological aspects of life indoors (e.g., ...
The Integration of Engineering and Architecture: a Perspective on Natural Ventilation for the new San Francisco Federal Building ...
Think of it as instant smoke in a can. To members of the fire, safety and construction team in the science court atrium of the Mark O. Hatfield Clinical Research Center, it resembled a white river, a live rock concert, the genie coming out of the bottle. In reality it was artificial smoke pumped out of a theatrical fog machine for a test of the new hospitals smoke exhaust system. The test, conducted Sunday morning, August 15, was part of the CRC activation process. National Fire Protection Association standards require that multistory buildings with an atrium have a working smoke exhaust system. The test provided an operational check of the exhaust system, explained Bob Beller, a contractor representing the NIH fire marshal. It also allowed NIHs fire department to see where smoke may linger and where additional smoke ejection fans may be needed. The smoke filling the CRC air cavities was an artificial, nontoxic concoction of the kind used to dazzle audiences at operas, concerts and ...
Indoor air quality in schools may have an impact on students health and concentration, and activities for maintenance and improvement should be carried out on the basis of an objective evaluation of the indoor air quality. The purpose of this study is to suggest a method for setting the absolute and relative reference values for an indoor air quality index in the classrooms of the school. The pollutant concentration criteria in domestic and foreign codes, guidelines, certification systems, and indoor environment indexes were investigated and analyzed, and the absolute references with three levels were established for five pollutants including PM10, PM2.5, CO2, formaldehyde, and total airborne bacteria. The distribution characteristics of each pollutant were analyzed using the public data from the Ministry of Education, and peer groups for appropriate comparison were suggested for setting relative references. ...

Heat recovery ventilation systems not only extract the stale indoor air and replace it with fresh air, but also by passing the supply air close to the exhaust air it is possible to warm the incoming air. This means that during the cold winter days, heat is not lost from the building through your commercial ventilation system. By combining this type of commercial ventilation with an air conditioning system, one can control the other. Because Microfix Services is a specialist in both we can design the system to maximise this ...

By Nate Adams. Weve all seen the studies: Our Indoor Air Quality is terrible! Its KILLING MILLIONS!!. The problem with these studies is that if youre like me you thought; great, another scare tactic. Or its really only a problem in Asia. Or of course, Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) may be a problem in someone elses house, but not mine. Even if youve read that poor IAQ is being found to be a cause of childhood asthma and mental illness, or that air pollution is the single largest environmental health risk according to the World Health Organization, it still feels too remote to worry about it.. To further enforce the disconnect, short of a government study, there has been no clear way for the average person could gain even the vaguest insight into their indoor air quality (but heres a hint, if you use air fresheners, you have an IAQ problem.). Well, thats all changed, no more guessing. Average Joes like you and me can now get a pretty good picture of how good or bad the air in our homes ...

Health complaints among employees of a 22 story municipal office building were investigated by NIOSH. A self administered questionnaire was distributed to all 438 employees on floors 15 through 22 of the office building requesting information on demographic characteristics, health history, health symptoms, and comfort concerns. Elevated carbon-dioxide (124389) levels were found in two locations, l
The term heat recovery (WRG for short) stands for different methods for the utilization of the thermal energy. This waste heat is not only produced as exhaust air in air conditioning systems and refrigerators. On a large scale, heat recovery also works from exhaust air in various industrial processes. For builders and homeowners who are planning to build a new building or renovate an old building, a ventilation system with a heat recovery system is recommended. The high efficiency of more than 90% brings considerable savings. At the same time, the reduction of energy costs is the top goal of every measure for heat recovery. However, the lower use of primary energy also meets ecological requirements, such as the reduction of CO2 emissions. In addition to energy saving, the protection of the living space, the ventilation without external noise, protected rooms for pollen allergists as well as harmless and comfortable room air conditions are the advantages of a living room ventilation unit. ...
