||The heavy use of organic solvents in screen printing establishments can result in concentrations of these solvents in the air of the workplace exceeding the TLV, even in the presence of general ventilation. This report evaluates the effect of 4 local exhaust systems suitable for such workplaces. The concentration of solvents in the air was reduced by 80-90% after correct application of these local exhaust systems. The effect of a canopy hood used in one screen printing unit was also evaluated. Directions are given for the design of ventilation systems in these workplaces.
