In-Depth Exploration of Moisture Meters

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM
__________________________________________

Description:
 

Moisture meters have long been a critical tool in IAQ and remediation industry, but much has changed in both the meter technology and the construction materials. It is essential for capable inspectors to stay abreast of these changes to ensure their moisture inspection work is accurate and reliable. This presentation will discuss the various types of moisture meters and the proper techniques for using those meters when assessing moisture in buildings. We will review such topics as how to avoid false readings, salts detector, and contamination, conductance versus capacitance, rising dampness profile, and causes of rainwater infiltration. This presentation has information for both the experienced inspector and the beginner so they may better employ moisture meters.

Tracer Gas as a Tool for Contaminant Behavior and Building Commissioning

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 8:00 AM to 12:00 PM
__________________________________________

Description:

The focus of the workshop is to provide the audience with the knowledge to conduct Tracer gas procedures in various indoor air quality scenarios including determination contaminant migration inside buildings, outdoor air infiltration, actual airflow patterns, documenting adequate HVAC system performance and commissioning. The focus shall be placed on the use of single and multipoint procedures using SF6 as tracer gas. Examples of case studies include carbon monoxide contamination, cooking odor pattern verification and HVAC performance.

Indoor Air Quality Monitoring – A New Toolkit for the 21st Century

Tuesday, February 18, 2020 - 12:30 PM to 4:30 PM
____________________________________________

Description:

With the world’s highest levels of public awareness of indoor air quality combined with incredible growth in built environments, there is plenty of opportunity in the IAQ industry. A notable trend is continuous monitoring to track and validate indoor environmental quality. One of China’s experts in monitoring will share best practices, drawing upon his experience having developed and deployed over 2000 monitors globally. Topics covered will include: why monitor, how to select hardware, how to deploy, and how to read and use the data to gain valuable insight.
