Mechanical Engineering Design Aspects

These include:

HVAC Systems

mechanical engineeringOne is first required to choose between a compact floor-by-floor such as slit or rooftop units and heat pumps or central HVAC system. In order to select a system or a combination of systems, the architect must be in constant consultation with the engineer of a building. The two will then further consult with the owners and other specialists such as electricians and plumbers before producing the final building layout and HVAC system.

There are three components of an HVAC system: Source Components facilitate heat or moisture removal and provision e.g. Boiler and refrigerator cooler; Distribution components transmits the heat or coolant to various areas requiring conditioning e.g. radiators and fans; Delivery Components finally work as a link between the distribution system and room space of a building.

Commercial hood exhausts systems

This system is mainly used in restaurants and it can greatly improve productivity of your business once installed. Their main function is to curb and contain smoke, moisture and heat produced from the kitchen.

Some hoods are fitted over equipment emitting smoke and in some cases grease vapors while others are fitted over appliances producing only moisture or heat.
These hoods also contain filters that enable them to perform their functions efficiently. Thus, they secure exhaust ducts by stopping flames from going into them. In addition, they also absorb grease vapors and moisture. The mostly commonly used filter is the Baffle Filter but for a bigger surface area, the Velocity Cartridge Filter is recommended.
