Everything you need to know about industrial ventilation design, operation and maintenance is in these manuals from ACGIH

by Brianna Crandall — March 11, 2019 — The American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists (ACGIH) has released Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Design, 30th Edition, which is one of over 25 titles featured in the ACGIH Signature Publications Series.

Since its first edition in 1951, Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Design has been used by engineers, regulators and industrial hygienists to design and evaluate industrial ventilation systems.

Beginning with the 26th Edition, the Manual has undergone several major reorganizations and upgrades: the addition of a second compendium manual dedicated to operation and maintenance (Industrial Ventilation: A Manual of Recommended Practice for Operation and Maintenance); subsequent additions of chapters on organization and evaluation of systems; metric solutions and tables; and calculation sheets and methods.

Now in its 30th Edition, changes in many of the chapters and conceptual figures that incorporate computational fluid dynamics (CFD) have been added for clarification and incorporated for simpler conceptual understanding of airflow patterns. Care has been taken to make this Manual a practical user’s handbook, written with deference toward a simpler and more concise means of explanation, points out ACGIH.

In addition, the Manual incorporates a new control concept for vacuum extraction on welding guns to complement the four new conceptual design strategies found in the 29th Edition.
