Free Webinars Set for Air-System Engineering, Technology

July 16, 2019
Education series kicks off July 31 with a presentation on the new Fan Energy Index and its expected impact on building energy codes and standards.

The Air Movement and Control Association (AMCA) International Inc. this month will launch its new Air System Engineering and Technology (ASET) series of free webinars on topics impacting air systems in buildings. The first webinar will be Wednesday, July 31, from 12 noon to 1 p.m. CDT, focused on “Fan Energy Index (FEI)—Changing Our Industry.”

FEI is a new fan-efficiency metric headed for building energy codes and standards, including the 2019 version of ANSI/ASHRAE/IES 90.1, Energy Standard for Buildings Except Low-Rise Residential Buildings. It also is a design tool, an indicator of the ability of a fan system (fan, motor, and drive) to serve a duty point efficiently.

Presented by Mark Bublitz, chair of the AMCA Fan Regulation Committee, Tim Mathson, chair of the AMCA Fan Committee, and Michael Ivanovich, AMCA senior director, global affairs, the webinar will provide a technical overview of FEI, cover practical applications of FEI, discuss current regulatory developments and initiatives, and more.

The webinar is worth 1 professional-development hour (PDH) through Registered Continuing Education Program (RCEP). It is sponsored by Applied Research Laboratories, ebm-papst, Greenheck, Mars Air Systems, PennBarry, and Ventilation & Fan Consulting Service International.
