BASF 701 Building HVAC & Pressurization System
This project included replacement and relocation of existing HVAC equipment, ductwork and appurtenances which resulted in a complete and functional HVAC and pressurization system.
BASF 800/ 806 Building Exhaust & Control Room Fresh Air Supply System
The project consisted of designing a new fresh air ventilation system for the Capro-Lactam production facility. The issue was complicated by the fact that due to the location of the Control Room, fresh air was not readily available. Wanting to maintain a pressurized environment within the Control Room required that pressurization testing prior to the design was required to determine, empirically, the amount of air needed to produce the requested level of pressurization, relative to the surrounding production facilities. Once this was accomplished, a multiple bed, gas-phase filtration system, along with a water cooled chilled water air conditioning system was designed to scrub the incoming air, temper it and deliver it to the Control Room. This design saved the construction of a 200+ foot 32” round, stainless steel outside air stack which would have been required to get to a location with acceptable air quality to accomplish the task at hand.
