Title Atmospheric dilution of fume hood exhaust gases
Bibliographic information Mar. 1982, Vol.43, No.3, p.185-189. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Guidelines are proposed for the design of fume hood exhaust systems such that sufficient atmospheric dilution is obtained to prevent unacceptable contamination of fresh air intakes. An empirical design criterion, used in pharmaceutical research laboratories, is presented. The literature on the calculation of atmospheric dilution near buildings is reviewed and suggestions are offered regarding the appropriate choice of a design formula for a given application.
