This course will focus on the benefits of multi-user, in-lab local vacuum networks for supply of laboratory vacuum in science buildings. The course will review common approaches to laboratory vacuum and consider the relative strengths and weaknesses of each approach. Emphasis will be placed on considerations related to the specification, design, and installation of a “local vacuum network.” Case studies will demonstrate the applicability of local vacuum networks for new and renovated lab space in a wide range of facilities and scientific disciplines.
In recent years, the construction industry has adopted standards and practices to use more insulation in buildings. This has been driven by both government and private initiatives to improve building energy efficiency. High-performance insulation is crucial for the achievement of these objectives! This course discusses the physical and performance properties of polyisocyanurate (polyiso) foam board insulation—a commercially-established, cost effective technology that is very useful for the construction of more energy efficient buildings.
