Title Development of push-pull ventilation
Bibliographic information May 1985, Vol.46, No.5, p.262-267. Illus. 8 ref.
Abstract This technique of blowing air across a contaminant generation area toward an exhaust hood can have distinct advantages over exhaust ventilation alone. It reduces the volume of conditioned air exhausted, thus providing energy savings. Systems and flow rates are described for open surface tank operations such as plating. About 98% of the contaminants generated can be captured by a push-pull system using proper flow rates.
