Title A practical guide to ventilation - 3: Manual manufacture of laminated polyester products
Original title Guide pratique de ventilation - 3: Mise en ¿uvre manuelle des polyesters stratifiés [in French]
Bibliographic information 1st quarter 1984, No.114, Note No.1463-114-84, p.3-23. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract This note was prepared to be a guide and reference source for the design, installation, testing, operation and monitoring of the ventilation systems in a laminated-polyester workshop. Styrene concentration in air was considered as the risk indicator, and the effectiveness of the ventilation system was tested by seeing if it could lower styrene concentration to 50ppm. Topics covered: manufacturing techniques and raw materials used; design of the ventilation system (choice of configuration, dimensions); study methodology; aspects of implementation and monitoring (air flow rate calculation, choice of parts, heating). Technical documentation is presented for actual installations.
