Title Workplace ventilation and heating seen from the angle of energy saving and recovery
Original title Ventilation et chauffage des locaux de travail associés à l'économie et à la récupération d'énergie. [in French]
Bibliographic information Edition INRS n°532, Institut national de recherche et de sécurité. 30 rue Olivier-Noyer, 75680 Paris Cedex 14, France, Sep. 1976. 62p. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract Up to the present, ventilation and heating problems were considered separately, and dust, gases and fumes were removed from buildings directly into the surrounding air. Energy saving policy now necessitates re-examination of this procedure. This well-illustrated booklet contains chapters devoted to various types of ventilation, exhaust ventilation, and heating and air purifying systems used in industrial premises, and comments on techniques which can be used to save energy used for heating: recirculation of air after purifying and, if necessary, reheating; heat recovery by heat pumps and heat exchangers (fluid or direct); recovery of heat from waste combustion. Appended: typical energy recovery systems with profitability calculations. Reference to French legislation on gas and dust removal from workplaces, airborne dust control and combustion installations.
