Title Effectiveness of local exhaust systems
Original title Skuteczność urządzeń wentylacji miejscowej wywiewnej [in Polish]
Bibliographic information June 2003, No.6, p.24-28. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract This article presents current standardization efforts for evaluating the parameters connected with the emission of airborne dust from machinery and devices and assessing the effectiveness of exhaust ventilation systems. It discusses methods used in Germany and Poland. The results of measurements of the emission of dust generated during machining using hand-held power tools and a bench grinder are presented, as well as results of testing the effectiveness of dust removal by local exhaust systems.
