For the example case discussed above [10 ft 3. Design Criteria When designing stacks with the numerical method, it is necessary to have a design criterion for selecting a stack design. If the ACD is ansu i. These operations are performed inside a hood adequate to attain compliance. The containment and capture of a anzi hood shall be considered adequate if, in combination with prudent practice, laboratory worker chemical exposure levels ansk maintained below applicable in-house exposure limits as recommended in 2.
Receptor sites would include operable doors and windows, z9.52-003 any location where pedestrian access was allowed as well as to outside air intakes. The contamination in the general work area should be reduced before use. Fan performance and exhaust measurements should be conducted by a certified Test-and-Balance firm.
When control of utilities from inside the glovebox is required, additional valves and switches shall be provided outside the glovebox for emergency shutoff. This standard does not apply to the following types of laboratories or hoods except 9z.5-2003 it may relate to general laboratory ventilation: The maximum sash opening area intended for use by laboratory personnel is called the design sash position.
The location of laboratory chemical hoods and other hoods or vented openings with respect to open windows, doorways, and personnel traffic flow directly influences the containment ability. It does not apply to comfort or energy considerations unless they have an effect on contaminant control ventilation. Doors and panels on the lower portion should be capable of being opened for the installation of apparatus.
Pumphrey Chicago Transit Authority. The laboratory exhaust is based on three components: Provision shall be made for maintenance of the ACD without hazard to personnel or the environment and so as not andi contaminate the surrounding areas.
A Manual of Recommended Practice, and the most current codes, guidelines, and standards and any other applicable regulations and recommendations see Appendix 2. Persons responsible for laboratory operations and those working within a laboratory are typically not very knowledgeable about how ventilation systems directly impact laboratory occupant health and safety. Since modifications of the volumetric flow of a VAV nasi could upset the balance, the supply and exhaust systems should be designed to accommodate the modification in the exhaust air.
VAV Laboratory Chemical Hood Systems VAV hood systems shall be commissioned prior to use by laboratory personnel to ensure that all system z9.55-2003 function properly and the system operates as designed under all anticipated operating modes defined under the VAV section.
Sash movement qnsi require no more than 5 lbs. It also may be used for routine periodic testing, but it is somewhat expensive and other less rigorous tests may be adequate if conditions have not changed since commissioning tests. Hoods should only be turned off when all materials are removed from the interior and only if the hood does not provide general exhaust ventilation to the space.
z9.5-2030 Laboratory-scale gloveboxes, for which this standard applies, should have a maximum internal chamber volume of 50 ft3 1. Although the storage of acids does not pose the same hazard as flammable solvents, the storage of acids under the hood should be in acid-resistant cabinets. Neutralizing reagents should be used, if available.
Another method is to measure the face velocity. When standard provisions are in conflict, the ajsi stringent applies. If exposure limits [e. Replacement air is part of the general ventilation system. Third Stack Design Method— Physical Modeling Using the Wind Tunnel or Water Flume If the stack heights determined from the first two methods described above are undesirable or if the geometry or topography of the building site makes simple analysis methods unreliable, a scale model of the building and a9.5-2003 should be physically modeled in an atmospheric wind tunnel or water flume.
Determine that sash position of one hood does not affect flow through another hood.
New lab ventilation standard. ANSI/AIHA Z9.5-2003 affects every lab.
A Manual of Recommended Practiceswhich can be related to flow. Floor-Mounted Hoods absi called Walk-In Hoods A floor-mounted hood is a laboratory hood that shall meet the requirements in Sections 3. Periodic dynamic testing should be performed when significant changes have occurred or to evaluate the response of a VAV system. Smoke tests should be used only as an indication of flow direction and ahsi of visible smoke should not be interpreted as an absence of smoke.
If a combination sash provides horizontally moving panels mounted in a frame that moves vertically, the above requirements in Sections 3. Accumulation of debris or other materials anzi the sash track can impede movement. If the maintenance activities involve contact with potentially contaminated parts of the system, these parts should be evaluated first by appropriate methods.
Scholz American Glovebox Society. If the air-cleaning device ACD is passive i. Floor-mounted hoods are used when the vertical working space of a bench z9.5-203 is inadequate for the work or apparatus to be contained in the hood. The hood should not be used unless specific conditions for safe use can be identified and posted such as its maximum sash opening.
The program should be written z9.52003 supported by top management. Ensuring proper operation of a laboratory chemical hood requires proper design, installation, and operation of all components of anwi exhaust systems and many times the air supply systems as well. The responsible person defined in Section 2. As a starting place, it is suggested here to have the stack provide protection similar to what a laboratory chemical hood would provide a worker standing at the hood.
Factors including the design of the hood, the laboratory layout, and cross-drafts created by supply air and traffic all influence hood performance as much as or more than the face velocity.

Smoke particles are rapidly diluted to the extent where they may not be visible even though significant concentrations may exist in the invisible plume.

Pitot tubes other than standard shall be calibrated. The standard is presented in a two-column format. Blair American Insurance Services Group.
Wainless US Department of the Navy.
A normalized dilution value can be obtained by multiplying D by the ratio of the actual volume flow rate and a standardized volume flowrate [i. In addition, the tracer gas test does not simulate a live operator, who may increase potential for escape due to operator size, movements near the hood opening, or improper hood use.
