ABSTRACT

 

This work presents optimum design of exhaust system used for fumes and smoke generated by various processes, which carry with them acidic droplets .This system is also used for circulation and ventilation of the fresh air in the industrial sheds and building. It is used as HVAC (Heating Ventilating and Air Conditioning Applications). This system is designed with compact assembly of impeller, casing and motor. It is made with customized specification to meet the requirement of different industries. It is designed with variable speed, so that it can be used to control the combustion, guide waste exhaust gases, coarse dust or chips, mixed dust with large shavings or lighter amounts of fine dust. Experimentally, we have studied the flow conditions at various locations and with different types of fumes and smoke. As a result, we reached the conclusion that it is a very efficient exhaust system which makes the environment clean and free from fumes and smoke. The portability of this system makes it a multi usage system.
