Why Choose this Training Course?

Why Choose this Training Course? 

HVAC (Heating Ventilation & Air Conditioning) is a science and professionalism known by a good population in this world but knowing and justifying the reason for the proper decisions and selections are great additions to any organization, company, facility, building, production, operation, maintenance and other departments. This PetroKnowledge training course is planned to define the proper route for HVAC design, operation, and maintenance.

“Comfort conditions” are the golden words used by HVAC professionalism; these golden words need to be more specified, more customized, and accurately applied to reach customer satisfaction. This PetroKnowledge training course introduces the standards which lead the definitions of the main parameters, requirements, limitations. By knowing where we are in this world; and what the atmospheric conditions are; and what the project conditions are, we can reach the expected end results and deliverables.

This PetroKnowledge training course will highlight:

  • HVAC Design concepts
  • Chilled Water System Piping
  • Heat Transfer and Selecting the proper Air Cooling System
  • HVAC Operation modes
  • HVAC Maintenance requirements

Organisational Impact

Improving the operation and maintenance staff performance which will lead to a budget reduction by: 

  • Reducing the amount of improper operation
  • Reducing the improper maintenance
  • Increasing the end user’s satisfaction
  • Reducing the Mean Time to Perform Maintenance
  • Increasing the Mean Time Between Maintenance
  • Reduce Initial and Running costs and Increase the HVAC systems

Personal Impact

Using the “Plan – Do – Check – Act” as a routine sequence in any HVAC activity will help you to:

  • Define the proper design which will reduce the initial and running costs
  • Perform a proper interpretation for the HVAC equations, to reduce costs and increase efficiency
  • Select the proper materials & HVAC equipment to reduce the operation and maintenance efforts
  • Define the needed control system to reduce the operation costs and staff
  • Define the needed maintenance tasks to reduce costs and time, and increase efficiency
  • Define the improvement needed in your systems

Daily Agenda

Day One: HVAC Systems Design 

  • Sources of heat load
  • Using the equation of each heat load for analysis and possible reduction in the heat load.
