Filtration and Air-Cleaning Systems
The Filtration and Air-Cleaning Systems online PDH course is a part of the Mechanical Engineering category of courses.
With U.S. workers and workplaces facing potential hazards associated with chemical, biological, or radiological terrorism, the occupational health and safety dimension of homeland security is increasingly evident. As with most workplace hazards, preventive steps can reduce the likelihood and mitigate the impact of terrorist threats. This course provides guidelines on protecting workplaces from these new threats. It provides detailed, comprehensive information on selecting and using filtration and air-cleaning systems in an efficient and cost-effective manner. Filtration systems can play a major role in protecting both buildings and their occupants.
This course is based on DHHS (NIOSH) Publication Number 2003-136 “Guidance for Filtration and Air-Cleaning Systems to Protect Building Environments from Airborne Chemical, Biological, or Radiological Attacks”.
This course is intended for use by mechanical and environmental engineers, design and construction persons, owners, facility managers, students and others interested in learning about protection of mechanical and ventilation systems against airborne attack or contamination.
At the end of the course, you will be able to:
- Explain filtration and air-cleaning principles
- Describe Particulate Air Filtration
- Describe Gas-Phase Air Cleaning
- Explain and recommend filter and sorbent selection, operation, upgrade and maintenance
- Explain and compare cost of air-filtration systems, including maintenance and replacement costs
Good, comprehensive course
A good overview of filtration systems. Well researched and written. This material is an introduction only and will not provide direction for filter selection without considerable additional research by the HVAC system operators.
A good filter course
