Abstract This study is intended as a guide and reference document for the design and monitoring of installations for collecting or diluting the pollutants given off by surface treatment vats and tanks. Field of use: all chemical or electrolytic processes in which the parts to be treated are immersed in liquids (excluding solvent degreasing processes, processes using salt or molten-metal baths and organic coating processes in general). Sections are devoted to: general principles of ventilation; ventilation system design (determination of category and overall level of risk, choice of ventilation configuration, flowrate calculations, effluent treatment); installation inspection and monitoring. Appendices: classification of surface treatment processes and general design data for ventilation systems.
