MASTER CLASS:
Flammable Refrigerants for Refrigeration and Air Conditioning

Ing. Gildardo Yáñez
Refrigeration Specialist - Mexico

  • Conference summary

    With the process of reducing refrigerants with high global warming potential, the refrigeration and air conditioning sectors have the task of adapting to new synthetic or natural flammable fluids that will replace the current ones.

Financial Analysis for HVAC systems under the Life Cycle Cost Analysis (LCCA) method

Ing. Edgar Alejandro Moneta Elizondo
Global Plasma Solutions – Mexico

  • Conference summary

    Decision makers usually carry out complicated analyses to detail the costs of ownership and operating costs to help them determine whether a project is not only feasible but also whether the money invested will yield returns above what is offered by other alternatives (stock market, investment funds, promissory notes, etc.) commonly called Opportunity Cost. Even so, the final decision they make is based on economic tools. In this lecture you will learn the financial language needed to justify investment alternatives in HVAC projects.

Healthy indoor air and energy-efficient HVAC solutions

Elsa Yanez
Belimo – Mexico

Raúl Contreras
Belimo – Mexico

  • Conferene summary

    Considering the significant amount of time we spend inside buildings, indoor air quality (IAQ) and productivity have not always received sufficient attention in the past. In many cases, the focus was on building health rather than occupant and energy efficiency. It is possible to design energy efficient buildings and at the same time provide occupants with healthy indoor air. Belimo's framework, the 7 Essentials of Healthy Indoor Air, provides valuable information on how HVAC devices can contribute to healthy indoor air (HIA) in buildings without compromising energy efficiency.

Nine Fundamentals of a Healthy Building

Ernesto Porras
Consultor – Colombia

  • Conference summary

    We will show how a Healthy Building requires a holistic vision that analyzes together a variety of factors and systems, forcing interactions between various fields of expertise to achieve an indoor environmental quality that generates productivity, health and well-being for users and economic benefits for owners.

11:00 - 12:00
Fouling factor, consequences and how to avoid fouling in HVAC/R systems

Mayra Lira
Clinest – Mexico

  • Conference summary

    The accumulation of dirt in the parts where the heat exchange of the systems takes place, such as copper tubes, aluminum fins, the inside and outside of tubes or plates, substantially affects the performance of the units by representing a thermal resistance. It is known as fouling factor or fouling factor. Carrying out predictive and preventive maintenance is the key to saving energy, avoiding shutdowns and extending the life of HVAC/R units, but now, more than ever, to achieve in addition to comfort and productivity, indoor air quality by preventing the spread of pathogens through the air. In this talk we will address the causes and types of fouling depending on the part of the unit as well as prevention and removal procedures with the latest technology cleaners and tools.

12:00 - 13:30
Lunch
13:30 - 14:30

Modular Central Chilled Water Plants: a hydronic option for HVAC engineering

Ing. Daniel Domínguez Lucero
Flutec – USA

  • Conference summary

    There are a multitude of options with different types of systems available on the market to propose artificial climate solutions for any HVAC project. For large projects, with greater awareness, design engineers are urged to evaluate the best options from the point of view: efficiency, environmental impact, durability, reliability, cost benefit, and maintenance among others. Since the beginning of the 21st century, PCM systems (Modular Central Plants) have emerged as an innovative solution, penetrating mainly in the US and Arab Emirates markets. At present, they represent an attractive and important option for the rapid integration and implementation of hydronic solutions where, in addition to the aforementioned characteristics, quality control and functionality are sought.

14:30 - 15:30

Academy-Industry Interrelationship for the Training of HVAC Technicians

Héctor Dueñas
CBT Technology Institute – USA

Aníbal Borroto
CBT Technology Institute – USA

  • Conference summary

    The industry needs technicians with an academic background that enables them to assimilate new technologies and face new problems, something that empirical technicians cannot do, but at the same time requires that graduates have the professional skills and practical skills to enter the field.
