    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.
