With our over 30 years experience in energy conservation and alternative energy, Wescor's highly-trained professional staff is uniquely qualified to present seminars geared for architectural firms, engineering firms, and design/build contractors.

Each seminar lasts approximately one hour. Contact the Wescor office nearest you for more information.

Pool room dehumidification designcovers evaporation basics, discusses methods for alleviating high-humidity loads in pool rooms, and compares the various methods' energy use.
This seminar also covers the latest findings by both ASHRAE and the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and their recommendations for using a source capture system for minimizing the effects of trichloramines and other gases found in natatorium environments.

Heat recovery for water-heating applicationsdiscusses how heat recovery from ambient or process air can be captured and used to pre-heat potable, process, or radiant water-heating systems. Air-to-water and water-to-water heat-pump technology is covered, as well as high- and low-temperature recovered heat and outside air systems for radiant floor heating systems.

Solar air heating systemscovers transpired solar collectors for pre-heating process or ventilaton air, technology that the US Department of Energy calls the “most efficient solar collectors in the world.” This seminar covers both vertical wall-mount systems and roof-top-mounted systems; discusses combining roof-top solar air heating system used as racking for solar photovoltaic panels; and shows how to use the RETScreen sizing and analysis program.
Evaporative cooling systemsdiscusses the full range of alternatives available with evaporative cooling: direct evaporative, indirect evaporative, two-stage indirect evaporative, and indirect/direct evaporative systems. The seminar shows how the systems work, the energy efficiency of each system, and the tonnage saved using each system.

Dedicated Outside Air Systems (DOAS)explains the terms of the AHRI 920 Standard, how the calculations were arrived at, and how the Standard is integrated into ASHRAE 90.1 ratings. By designing a DOAS system with high ISMRE and ISCOP ratings, you can lower the energy cost of a DOAS system by as much as 40%.

Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA)explains the special HVAC requirements of a grow room and why using air conditioners and dehumidifiers built for sensible cooling applications is not a proper design for a process application such as found in an indoor grow room.
A sophisticated CEA system must have several key features, including the ability to control the discharge temperature, adjust the dehumidification capacity, and anticipate the the changes that quickly occur in a grow room. In addition, the controller logic must provide growers with a predictable, stable environment needed to maximize yield and achieve desired results, while using energy efficiently.
