Waterloo teaches the basics of air distribution

Air terminal device manufacturer Waterloo Air Products has launched a training course geared towards teaching construction professionals how air distribution works in buildings.

‘The Basics of Air Distribution’ takes place on Wednesday 19 July at the Waterloo head office in Aylesford, Kent.  It is free to attend, and open to architects, specifiers, contractors, consultants and others involved in the construction industry.

“Getting the air distribution right is key to creating a successful building. The Waterloo team has a fantastic amount of expertise and we want to share this knowledge to help individuals and companies get the best out of the projects they’re working on,” said Rick Edmondson, Chairman at Waterloo. “Our trainers are members of the Chartered Institute of Building Services Engineers (CIBSE) and have over 60 years’ experience combined. The course is designed to be informative and engaging, with lots of hands-on testing.”

The course introduces the key science used in HVAC applications, looking at how aerodynamics, temperature and acoustics affect the distribution of air.

The Waterloo team will explain how to select the best air terminal devices for each project.  This section will give an understanding of the differences between grilles, diffusers and louvres, and how to get the most out of technical data.

Those attending the course will then learn more about supplying air to a building, and how air terminal devices are integrated with Air Handling Units (AHUs) and Variable Air Volume (VAV) technology to create a full HVAC system.

Throughout the day, the trainers will mix theory with practical demonstrations so everyone can see first-hand how air distribution works.  They can explore how air is supplied through a Waterloo grille, see a VAV in operation and try out control software.
