Fuel Oil Piping Diagram for Main Tank, Day Tank, and Diesel Genset

Fuel oil systems design has always been a challenge for most designers. It involves thorough knowledge of NFPA codes, EPA regulation, local and state laws, and client requirements. The above diagram provides a very good starting point for simple Diesel Fuel Oil Genset application especially mission critical facilities such as data centers, hospitals, and emergency response facilities. While designing adequate attention has to be paid to redundancy, failure scenarios, fuel freezing, potential for leaks, etc. For additional information or design expertise contact us.

Commercial and residential buildings pressurization calculations

Building pressurization calculations has long been one of the unknowns to most HVAC professionals. We have always wondered how much air we need to pressure a building. NFPA and ASHRAE have publications which define this based on building type, number of doors/windows, construction type, etc. We have created a simple spread sheet which makes it easy to accomplish this task. This goes together with door closure forces calculations. Some buildings in toxic chemical industry environments have to be pressurized to higher pressure to prevent infiltration of toxic gases during blasts. Door closure forces has to be adjusted to account for this. There are several other considerations especially w.r.t. ceiling, door undercut, pressurization air distribution, etc. Contact me for further information and details.
