1 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology © 3M All Rights Reserved. Laboratory/ Process Safety Ventilation Program By Tom Crotty Metrology With Results Bringing process safety, energy conservation and data collection together.

2 2 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Learning Objectives Ventilation Program 1. To convey best practices of a ventilation program and the method used for testing. 2. Provide a platform for developing a value added testing program using Metrology. 3. The participants will be able to replicate a similar program using the reference tools provided in this lecture © 3M All Rights Reserved.

3 3 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology 3M Corporate Headquarters Campus Campus = 425 acres, 41 buildings, 8.2 million square feet Office space Research and development Full scale product testing Pilot process lines Manufacturing © 3M All Rights Reserved.

10 10 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Flanged, Moveable Fume Extractors Some manufactured systems types: Nederman, Plymovent, Torit, and Micro-Air. non-flanged ventilation, elephant trunks

11 11 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Taking the Face Velocity Reading Use a calibrated anemometer to take the velocity measurement at the face of the ventilation opening. Slowly move the probe around the face of the opening until the highest face velocity is reached Document the highest consistent face velocity. © 3M All Rights Reserved.

12 12 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Flanged, Moveable Fume Extractors Labels Minimum requirement is 200 fpm face velocity. ~ 600 of these systems at 3M Center Pass: active hoods must be certified annually with yellow sticker Interim (low): orange sticker for systems between fpm, can still use during repair Fail: red sticker stating Do Not Use

13 13 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Oven - Indirect Side Ventilation © 3M All Rights Reserved.

14 14 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Oven Standard - Smoke Tube Test For oven exhaust on the top of the oven: hold the smoke tube parallel to the oven surface in the center of the opening. Discharge a stream of smoke. For oven exhaust on the side of the oven: hold the smoke tube parallel to the exhaust opening in the center of the opening. Discharge a stream of smoke. Smoke tube test results descriptions: Good: No reverse flow observed. Smooth flow into & around the boundaries of the exhaust opening. Fair: Some reverse flow, not necessarily at the opening. No visible escape of smoke. Poor: Reverse flow of smoke near openings or lazy flow into the openings along boundaries. Poor performance shows potential for escape of smoke. Fail: Smoke observed escaping from the duct or box

15 15 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Slot Exhausts Yellow label shows the effective capture distance. The blue and white Caution label remind the user to conduct a Hazard Review before start-up. Guidance for safety survey : finding = no sticker or more than 1 year since last certification (need to call *3 to get certified), finding = using ventilation with red failure label or with Caution label

16 16 Plant Engineering / Corporate Metrology Setting Specifications - Base line FPM © 3M All Rights Reserved. ANSI/ASHRAE 110 (1995) For 3M Hoods with average face velocities between fpm: Place a sash height indication label on the hood to the right of the sash indicating the sash position that the hood has been certified at (for vertical sashes only).
