||Exhaust and collection of fumes from die-casting machines
||Absaugung und Abscheidung der Dämpfe an Druckgiessmaschinen [in German]|

||Parting agents used in die-casting machines are the main source of air pollution in these foundries, and it must be controlled at the source by exhaust ventilation. The operation and construction of these installations is described: suction effect, volume of exhaust air, example of an exhaust system serving several machines. Fume collection as close as posssible to the source is decisive for efficiency. Attention is drawn to the high fire risk associated with condensation of grease in the pipework. Filtration of the fumes is also dealt with, with illustrated descriptions of the various mechanisms and types of filter.
