||Plans are described for the installation of 5 different air-purifying systems in an actual factory; air exhaust with heat recovery and heating by natural gas or oil; air exhaust without heat recovery and heating by natural gas or oil; air recycling after treatment and natural gas heating. For each possibility, the calculation includes: investment costs, annual operating costs, total costs based on the previous 2 costs, on the method of financing of the installation and on price projections. The influence of weather on these evaluations is discussed. The least expensive choice for this factory would be the installation of the system with air exhaust with energy recovery and heating by natural gas. A more general method for such calculations is being looked for; such a method would permit, at the planning stage, the comparison of prices of several solutions without the need for long and expensive studies.
