HVAC Duct Sealing: The Science and the Savings
It’s not the heat, it’s the humidity! At Pfizer Pharmaceutical, this isn’t simply a notion of comfort, it’s a battle cry for engineers responsible for controlling the indoor environment at the company’s pill-manufacturing facility in Puerto Rico. So, when Pfizer began a large HVAC renovation, the company knew tight ductwork was essential. After several failed attempts at traditional manual sealing, contractors recommended a new internal approach to duct sealing. To prove success, painstaking measurements were taken before and after the work was done. This webinar looks at how Pfizer quickly repaired leaky ductwork, improved operations and realized tens of thousands of dollars in annual energy savings.
Learning Objectives: Those attending this webinar will:
- Take an in-depth look at the pros and cons of traditional sealing methods and investigate the latest innovations used to eliminate leakage in existing duct systems.
- Review a detailed analysis of energy usage (and associated costs) before and after duct sealing including the impact on fan usage, the load on cooling coils, and other variables.
- Understand how critical components of the HVAC system impacted manufacturing at Pfizer Pharmaceutical.
- Gain a comprehensive understanding of the role duct leakage plays on the overall efficiency and functioning of heating and cooling systems in commercial facilities, including Pfizer.
