Distributing air flow as evenly as possible across a fume collection hood

Often Air Pollution Control (APC) designers are faced with the task of distributing air flow as evenly as possible across a fume collection hood face.  Simple hoods with no distribution can produce high velocities at the center of the hood which is good to collect emissions centered on the hood but not so good for collecting emissions generated at the edge of the hood.  To distribute and better equalize the flow across the hood width, a slotted plate baffle is commonly used.  See Fig 1.

Designers should consider using bar-sized structural steel shapes to create the reduction in cross sectional area.  This is often less expensive than a plate with slotted holes and provides the greatest amount of coverage across the hood width by allowing a free-flowing streamline to develop along the hood wall.  See Fig 2., an affordable, better design.
