Ashrae Std Testing Laboratory Fume Hoods

Laboratory fume hood performance. The occupational exposure of the proposed hood operator to SF6 and ethylene were 4. Ind health ;48 1: In present work, the possibility of conducting this method of hood performance test with less volume of SF 6 was investigated. The application of ASHRAE hood performance test with smaller volume of tracer sulfur hexafluoride gas is not recommended.
