Source capture ventilation on large galvanizing tanks


I/m looking for experiential data on source capture ventilation on large galvanizing tanks. Methods of calculation, etc. Guide data seems excessive and I'd like to confirm.

In the plating industry, most vendors today use the high-pressure low-volume push air system, with exhaust rates in the order of 100-150 CFM/sq. ft. I imagine galvanizing is similar.

Try calling some exhaust ventilation specialists like Cy-Bo Plastics [Montreal, Quebec], Prolite Systems [Maple Ridge, BC, Canada] or KCH Services [Forest City, NC]. They may be able to give you experimental data.
