1. Industrial ventilation is quite different from typical office building HVAC
2. Round ductwork is energy and transport efficient – still see labs built with rectangular ductwork of an office building
3. Local exhaust ventilation is a primary engineering control system for researchers; make it as easy to use as possible

Subject: [DCHAS-L] Fume Hood & Lab ventilation presentation for Engineering students - what would you include?
I have the opportunity to give a 1 hr presentation to the Engineering student section of ASHRAE that meets on our campus. I am going to talk about fume hoods & lab ventilation. I will give a short presentation and then take them to a lab so they can test face velocity with my various Alnors.
I'm planning on including ASHRAE Industrial Ventilation, ANSI/AIHA Z9.5, SEFA-1, NFPA 45, Laboratory Fume Hoods by G. Thomas Saunders, and Laboratory Ventilation Work Book by D. Jeff Burton as resources.
As a chemical safety professional, what do you wish the graduating Engineering students knew about fume hoods and lab ventilation?
Thanks, as usual, for your input!
