Method of testng performance of laboratory fume ashrad. Significance of face velocity fluctuation in relation to laboratory fume hood performance. Application of non-dispersive infrared NDIR spectroscopy to the measurement of atmospheric trace gases.

In this test, sulfur hexafluoride SF6 is applied as a tracer gas to quantitatively evaluate the performance of laboratory hoods.

Face velocity was measured times using a thermal anemometer TA-2 ashare. Meanwhile, the exposure of a mannequin stationed at the ashrea of hood was measured. A considerable amount of sulfur hexafluoride is applied to evaluate the performance of each laboratory hood according to ASHRAE— method. Am Ind Hyg Assoc ;59 2: The concentration of tracer gases was measured using direct reading instruments.

Ind health ;48 1: Choosing less environmentally damaging gases for fume hood tracer gas testing.

Linear regression of the results was used to consider the substitution of ethylene with SF6. The occupational exposure of the proposed hood operator to SF6 and ethylene were 4. Islamic Azad university; The average and standard deviation of face velocity at hood inlet were 0.


The application of ASHRAE hood performance test with smaller volume of tracer sulfur hexafluoride gas is not recommended. Hitchings DT, Maupins K. Shahid Beheshti University of Medical Science; Ann OccupHyg ; 51 2: Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
