Removal of Particulate Contaminants in Supply Air

Air filters are an essential part of any HVAC system to remove particulate contaminants in the supply air that would otherwise be harmful to the building occupants, or build up in the ductwork or equipment. They are also an essential part of air moving devices such as terminal units, fan coils and air handlers as they remove dirt that would otherwise cause coil blockages and fan wheel imbalances.

Swimming Pool Ventilation

Posted by Price Industries on March 24, 2020 at 12:03 PM

Design Considerations for Natatorium Ventilation

Designing a ventilation system for a swimming pool can be tricky. For occupant comfort, these facilities require 40 to 60% relative humidity to be maintained year round. For swimmers, a humidity range of 50 to 60% is most comfortable. However, humidity levels below 50% can significantly increase energy consumption, while humidity levels above 60% can cause damage due to mold, mildew and condensation.
