Connecting Industrial Exposures to Practical Industrial Ventilation Controls

James Friedman CIH. PE, Robert Shearer, Jonathan Hale, Neil Zimmerman PhD. CIH. PE, Rafael Sartim. PhD. PE


This roundtable discussion will cover the following topics:

What Engineers should understand about worker exposures before designing a ventilation system including:

- Hazard review to identify which sources to ventilate

- Understanding the physical forms of air contaminants: gases, fumes, smokes and dusts.

- Hood types and which to use.

- Hood airflows and how to estimate.

- Duct balancing methods and when to use and not to use.

- Important of makeup air and how to deliver and distribute.

- Using general exhaust ventilation for heat removal and building pressurization.
