ASHRAE will provide two exclusive courses during CLIMA 2022. Please note that these courses are not included in your CLIMA 2022 ticket and require separate registration. You can register for the courses via the ASHRAE website.

A comprehensive introduction to how ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) can be used in conjunction with HVAC systems to improve indoor environmental quality (IEQ) and reduce airborne disease transmission is the focus of the course. The course surveys the history of the development of UVGI from its beginnings in the 19th Century to the present. It describes the fundamentals of the germicidal action on UVGI and characteristics of UVGI sources, common system types and their applications, the economics of UVGI, and practical considerations including material degradation, maintenance, and safety. Case studies are used to illustrate typical applications.
