Program Objectives
The objectives are to develop the participant’s ability to recognize cost-saving measures in a steam plant and in HVAC equipment/operation, and then to implement the necessary changes to realize these savings. The measures to be explored include low up-front cost, O&M procedures, fast payback heat recovery, cogeneration projects and equipment modification projects. Additional objectives include showing participants the latest measurement instrumentation/techniques for measuring and improving HVAC efficiency, safety equipment/testing, cleaning, storage, etc., and updating participants on the status of existing and new refrigerants, including handling, recovery and the purchase/retrofit of new equipment.
