Presentation Description: 

Understanding laboratory and fume exhaust system fundamentals allow engineering of solutions that will safely meet design requirements, reduce the cost of operation, and more effectively control the system pressure. This presentation reviews the fundamentals required to safely exhaust contaminated air from a critical environment with use of pre-engineered fume exhaust systems. We will review multiple plume rise equations, how the exhaust system plays a role in the bigger lab control environment, various configuration options of the systems, and redundancy options.
