OPTIMIZING LABORATORY VENTILATION RATES

The objective of this Best Practice Guide is to help users optimize ventilation airflow and reduce associated energy use while maintaining or improving safety. While this guide highlights best-practice strategies focused on reducing energy use, it does not specify how to set a ventilation rate. Note that the terms “good” and “better practices” are used…
