This document is titled SHAPA Technical Bulletin No. 19 Dust Hood Design by Nigel Hubbard of Dustcheck Limited.
Hood design is one of most important areas to consider when designing Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV). It influences the effectiveness of the system in terms of contaminant control and the amount of air captured, which in turn influence ducting, air mover and air cleaner size.
The aim of this paper is to provide information that will help the reader to identify the correct type
of hood for the particular application.
