Title Validation of a recommended approach to recirculation of industrial exhaust air. Volume II
Bibliographic information National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 4676 Columbia Parkway, Cincinnati, Ohio 45226, USA, Aug. 1979. 195p. Illus. 18 ref.
Abstract The validity of the approach recommended in DHEW(NIOSH) Publication No. 78-124 (CIS 79-85) was evaluated by studying its application in 4 plants with newly installed exhaust air recirculation systems. The plants were a lead battery assembly operation, a woodworking operation, a wet grinding process, and an enamel blending process. Conclusions concerning the recommended approach and recommendations for improvement and research are presented. The recommended approach provided a useful method for examining the feasibility of recirculating exhaust air.
