This 3-hour course discusses the HVAC design considerations for corrosive environments. Over time, even extremely low levels of Airborne Molecular Contamination (AMC) in the parts per billion can cause permanent damage to the sensitive electronic equipment. The corrosive contaminants can attack the metal surfaces, structural elements, switchgear equipment, machinery and even the HVAC equipment. Failure to protect your assets may have costly ramifications.
Remember whereas the equipment design issues rests with the manufacturers, ensuring a satisfactory environment is sole responsibility of the end user.
This paper is aimed at students, architects, air-conditioning engineers, controls engineers, contractors, environmentalists and loss prevention professionals. It is assumed that all the readers know the basic functioning of the air-conditioning system.
This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
