Local ventilation is often a very important part of the
ventilation system. It is used to diminish or,
preferably, to prevent exposure to contaminants
(including heat). This includes protection of persons or
products from hazardous or nuisance contaminants.
Efficient operation of a local ventilation system must
account for exhaust flow field as well as contaminant
generation process and rate. Thus solid knowledge about
air flow mechanisms and contaminant generation process is
essential for proper design of local ventilation systems.
