Engineering Report

Well designed plant and process ventilation systems can be engineered to provide a high rate of uniform exhaust throughout the plant. For process exhaust, source capture is always the best approach. This minimizes exhausting fumes and dusts across workers prior to wall or roof ventilators exhaust. After source capture is provided, the sunload and heat given off by other equipment generally requires plant ventilation. Always design plant ventilation based on keeping the exhaust fans as far away from natural openings as possible.

We have just learned that type 304L and type 316L stainless steel can be utilized in spark resistant fans and blowers since the ferrous content is less than 5% per AMCA Standard 99-0401-86. Type 304 and Type 316 are not considered spark resistant and should not be used.
