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
