EAST LANSING, MI — The 51st Annual Industrial Ventilation Conference, sponsored by the Michigan Department of Consumer and Industry Services, will be held Feb. 11-14, 2002, at the Kellogg Hotel and Conference Center at Michigan State University.

Ventilation system design courses include principles of airflow, hood selection and design, determining the proper air volume and minimum air velocity in the duct, duct design, calculation of system pressure requirements, selection of fans, and air-cleaning equipment.

Advanced ventilation system design courses will also be available during the conference. A general advanced course will be offered for attendees who are familiar with exhaust system design, either through experience or by attending introductory-level courses. The course will cover a variety of industrial processes, including those involving flammable liquids and the assessment and retrofit of an existing fan installation.

A nonstandard air design course and a plant engineering course will be available for advanced students. The air design course involves ventilation systems with elevated temperatures and/or moisture where air density differs significantly from standard conditions. The engineering course is designed to deal with problems plant engineers encounter in the design of ventilation systems, including industrial processes, standard and nonstandard air systems, fan locations, noise, and other problems.
