This half-day course uses lecture and demonstration to provide an overview of the ANSI/ASHRAE Standard 110-2016 method for testing laboratory fume hood performance. The standard uses airflow measurements, qualitative smoke studies and quantitative tracer gas procedures to determine a hood performance rating. Instrumentation, apparatus requirements, practical considerations and reporting results are discussed. An ASHRAE 110 test is performed in a demonstration laboratory.
Participants Will Learn
- The scope and purpose of the ASHRAE 110 test method
- What equipment is needed for the test
- How to report and interpret hood test results
- How to perform the procedures specified in the test method
