That says the wrong engineer installed or designed the system. If the ducts were round with no right angle bends, and were sized for a 4000 l/m centerline velocity as ACGIH recommends, there would be no deposition. A lot of these desk-sized systems available off-the-shelf are not even close to good design. Monona
