Title Evaluation of industrial local exhaust hood efficiency by a tracer gas technique
Bibliographic information July 1984, Vol.45, No.7, p.485-490. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract Sulfur hexafluoride (SF6) was released at a known rate into an industrial process area, and exhaust hood efficiency was measured by comparing this quantity to that captured by the exhaust ventilation system as measured in the exhaust duct. The advantages and limits of the method are discussed.
