TABmaster Flow Hood 6715 for Exchange Rate Calculations for IAQ Investigation

As buildings have become “greener”, heating and cooling efficiency have greatly improved.  However, this increased building tightness can have a negative impact on the indoor air quality of the building if the HVAC system isn’t pulling in enough outside air.  How can you be sure that the occupants of a building are getting enough fresh air? The calculation is actually really simple.  ASHRAE Standard 62 lists the recommended volume of…

VOC’s and Vapor Intrusion: Keeping Up-to-date with Current State Guidance

Due to recent snowstorms that have resulted in power outages in the northeast, the NJDEP has updated some of the guidance relating to VOC’s and vapor intrusion. A building’s level of risk of the presence of volatile organic compounds (VOC’s) and vapor intrusion is based on the geographic properties of the surrounding area, the mitigation systems in place to minimize buildups, and general airflow in the most at-risk areas of…

Identify Duct Leakage in Commercial Buildings with the Kanomax DALT 6900

In large commercial and institutional buildings, the leading cause of energy waste (by a large margin) is duct leakage based on studies done by the Center for Energy and Environment (CEE).  Buildings use 49% of the total energy consumed in the United States, and of that 49%, HVAC systems are responsible for 32% of the energy.  Knowing this, it’s easy to imagine that much of the energy used is simply…

The Portable Particle Counter 3910 – Now Fully Compliant with ISO-14644: 2015

Introduction When it comes to cleanroom monitoring and verification, compliance with predetermined standards is both essential and everchanging.  It can become difficult to keep track of all the adjustments made to these standards, which can cause errors in particle counter readings and render the subsequent calculations useless.  Kanomax recognizes this issue and the importance of ensuring accurate measurements that comply completely with current standards.  In the interest of both saving…

Series 3520 Piezobalance Dust Monitor as Solution for Real-time Oil Mist Monitoring

In many manufacturing plants, machine shops and any type of metalworking facilities, oil mist is a constant concern.  It is both unsafe for the workers and rather difficult to monitor without the right equipment. The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) is well aware of the dangers of airborne oil particulates of any kind, and they’ve set acceptable limits.  The Permissible Exposure Limit (PEL) for mineral oil mist is 5mg/m3. …

ASHRAE 110 Test Kit – Ensuring a Safe Work Space for Techs

A fume hood is a local ventilation device designed to eliminate or minimize exposure to hazardous fumes, dust or other airborne particulates. Basically, the fume hood provides an area where a technician can safely work with certain hazardous materials. The fume hood is designed to contain and vent all dangerous vapors and particulates away from the worker. A typical fume hood will undergo quality testing by the manufacturer, but it…
