Robinson, 1950-1954; Chair, 1952-1954 A. That manual became the basis of the first edition of Industrial Ventilation in 1951. Frequently we punctuated discussions with a quota- tion from Cap or a reference to one of his published works. Principles of Air Flow 1.
He worked as a chemical engineer and ventilation engineer at Ralston Purina Company and Mallinckrodt Chemical, Uranium Division. S Heat Balance and Exchange 2. Usual range: loadings up to 3 grains per thousand cubic feet 0. Air Cleaner: A device designed for the purpose ofremov- ing atmospheric airborne impurities such as dusts, gases, vapors, fumes, and smoke. To many other individuals and agencies who have made specific contributions and have provided support, sugges- tions, and constructive criticism, our special thanks. Wunderle, 1960-1964 Aerosol: An assemblage of small particles, solid or liquid, suspended in air. During his 50-year career, Cap was a pioneer in the fields of industrial hygiene, industrial ventilation, and air pollution control.
This publication is designed to present accurate and authoritative information with regard to the subject matter covered. The Manual attempts to present a logical method of designing and testing these systems. Special acknowledgment is made to the Division of Occupational Health, Michigan Department of Health, for contributing their original field manual which was the basis of the First Edition, and to Mr. Louis County Health Department and the Michigan Department of Health as an industrial hygienist. Note: Atmospheric air in heavy industrial areas and in-plant air in many industries have higher loadings than this, and dust collectors are then indicated for proper air cleaning. In addition, Cap did consulting work, primarily as a ventilation engineer for Industrial Health Engineering Associates co-founder , Pace Incorporated, and Rust Environment and Infrastructure.
Dickie, 1984-1994; Consultant 1968-1984 B. In this 23rd edition, the Committee has made a number of minor revisions. He earned his bachelor's and master's degree in chemical engineering from Washington University in the 1940s. It has found wide acceptance as a guide for official agencies, as a standard for industrial ventilation designers, and as a textbook for industrial hygiene courses. Published in the United States of America by American Conference of Governmental Industrial Hygienists, Inc.
He served in the Commissioned Corps of the U. He conducted basic research on cyclone and fabric filter dust collectors and holds several patents for these devices. Because of new information on industrial ventilation becoming available through research projects, reports from en- gineers, and articles in various periodicals and journals, review and revision of each section of the Manual is an ongoing Committee project. . Air Horsepower: The theoretical horsepower required to drive a fan ifthere were no loses in the fan, that is, if its efficiency were 100 percent. Caplan, 1974-1978; Consultant, 1980-1986 W. Caplan who supervised the preparation ofthat manual.
In addition he wrote chapters in Air Pollution by Stem, Industrial Hygiene and Toxicology by Patty, Uranium Production Technology by Harrington and Rueble, and was the Associate Editor of Industrial Hygiene Aspects of Plant Operations: Volume 3 -Engineering Considerations in Equipment Selec- vii tion, Layout and Building Design by Crawley and Crawley. Caplan, while at the Division of Occupational Health, Michigan Department of Health, supervised the preparation of a field manual on industrial ventilation. He has been an instructor at the industrial ventilation conferences at Michigan State University thirty years and the University of Washington ten years. Petrey, Phoenix Process Equipment Co. Cap was born in St. Air Flow Characteristics of Blowing and Exhausting.
The Manual is not intended to be used as law, but rather as a guide. Barrett, 1956-1976; Chair, 1960-1968 J. Knutson, Knutson Ventilation Consultants, Minnesota G. Schuman, 1962-1994; Chair, 1968-1978 J. As an associate professor in the public health department of the University of Minnesota, Cap advised numerous Master's degree students in industrial hygiene, occupational health and air pollution control. Air, Standard: Dry air at 70 F and 29.
The metric supplement has been deleted and the Committee has developed a separate metric manual. He also worked for the St. Loeffler, 1980-1995; Chair, 1984-1989 1. Hughes, 1976-present; Chair, 1989-present H. In a constant effort to present the latest techniques and data, the Committee desires, welcomes, and actively seeks comments and suggestions on the accuracy and adequacy of the information presented herein. The Committee membership of industrial ventilation and industrial hygiene engineers represents a diversity of experience and interest that ensures a welJ- rounded, cooperative effort.
