Laboratory Exhaust Stacks: Safe and Energy-Efficient Design

Share This

Course Length: 3 hours

This course provides designers and operators of laboratories with wet lab exhaust systems with the proper methodology to ensure safe systems operation. Laboratory Exhaust Stacks: Safe and Energy-Efficient Design walks students through the entire design process. Energy consumption represents an important component of the course, as laboratories consume significantly more energy than a typical office building, due to laboratory ventilation systems. Training topics include how to properly locate air intakes and exhaust stacks and the various methods for applying variable-air-volume control to minimize energy usage while avoiding adversely impacting the air quality. Attendees will calculate an appropriate concentration design criterion for a specific emission source and determine dispersion modeling techniques for particular applications.
