||Open-type push-pull ventilation systems are increasingly being adopted as effective substitutes for conventional local exhaust ventilation systems at many welding workshops in Japan. In this study, laboratory experiments were carried out to evaluate the compliance of these systems with Japanese regulations and to establish design requirements and flow rate limitations necessary for avoiding welding defects.
