A considerable amount of sulfur hexafluoride is applied to evaluate the performance of each laboratory hood according to ASHRAE— method.

SF 6 is extremely hostile to environment and expensive.

In present work, the possibility of conducting this method of hood performance test with less volume of SF 6 was investigated. The performance of a laboratory hood was evaluated using ASHRAE standard method at three different ventilation capacity as well as three different volumetric flow rates of injected SF 6 while a mannequin was located at the front of hood.


Face velocity was measured times using a thermal anemometer TA-2 model. Air flow was visualized through injecting low and high volume of smokes at 18 tests.

Interpretations For Standard 110-1995

The occupational exposure of a hypothetic hood operator was determined 27 asnrae through direct reading. The average and standard deviation of face velocity at hood inlet were 0.
