Original title Recirkulation vid ventilation av rensningsarbetsplatser [in Swedish]
Bibliographic information Report 74009, Mekanresultat, Sveriges Mekanförbund, Box 5506, 114 85 Stockholm, Sweden, June 1974. 23p. Illus. Price: Swe-cr.38.00
Abstract Report on an investigation into the feasibility of recirculating cleaned air previously exhausted from a fettling shop in order to save air heating costs. The tests performed and equipment used are described in detail. The best results from both the occupational hygiene and economic points of view were obtained with a combination of cyclone or scrubber and filter dust collector (bag filter). It is recommended that filter installations for recirculating air should be provided with a warning device which is actuated as soon as a filter is damaged.
