SMACNA and AMCA Partnership Highlights Ducted Air Systems

amca logo2016SMACNA is joining forces with the Air Movement Control Association (AMCA) to embark on educating HVAC&R industry professionals on the benefits of ducted air systems.

AMCA’s 2019 Air Systems Engineering and Technology (ASET) North America Conference is slated for March 25-26, 2019 in Chicago, Illinois. It is just one of SMACNA and AMCA’s partnership efforts that will provide in-depth technical training and education on ducted air systems and its associated products. The conference will also offer multiple track sessions on duct design, fans, dampers, louvers, testing and balancing, and AMCA Certified Rating programs.

The annual ASET engineering conference offers participants such as contractors, engineers, research scientists and technicians, code officials, facility operators, designers, specifiers, and engineering students, structured learning experiences as well as provide peer-to-peer networking opportunities.

In addition, SMACNA and AMCA will present white papers featuring case studies that cover future research projects on energy system comparison of ducted air systems versus non-traditional systems for the HVAC&R industry.

AMCA International works to advance the health, growth, and integrity of the air-movement-and-control industry. Founded in 1917, AMCA represents manufacturers of ducts, fans, louvers, dampers, air curtains, airflow-measurement devices, and other air-system components. In addition to their Certified Ratings Program, AMCA verifies compliance, develops standards, and advocates for model codes, regulations, and utility incentive programs that promote efficiency and life safety.
