Outside air is a necessary part of the design of every HVAC system to provide adequate ventilation for occupants and spaces as called for in ASHRAE’s Standard 62.    While outside air can provide cooling in mild weather, often it requires both cooling and dehumidification  before it can be introduced into a space.   This is frequently accomplished by Direct Expansion Dedicated Outdoor Air Systems (DX-DOAS)

Mr. Paul Stewart of Desertaire  will give a brief overview of the latest version of ASHRAE 62 and review the basics of dehumidification before moving on to more detailed information on how typical DX-DOAS equipment operates.  He will focus on the new  performance standard,  AHRI 920, which  was approved in January 2016.  This standard established a performance standard for DX-DOAS based on the moisture removal efficiency of the products at multiple rating points.  The AHRI 920 standard was added to ASHRAE 90.1 in July 2016 with the adoption of Addendum cd to 90.1 – 2013.  This session will review the standard, the benefits to the industry, and the current adoption rate.
