Appendix A: Additional
The following is a list of books and publications that are often seen on the shelves
of professional air pollution control personnel. For more detailed information about
a particular product, application, or gas cleaning technique, these references will be
of great value to you.
A listing of the details of the individual publications is at the end of this appendix.
inDustrial Ventilation: a manual of reCommenDeD praCtiCe
This classic work is a valuable reference regarding gas collection and movement
techniques. In print since 1951, it contains information regarding collection hood
sizing, conveying velocities, ductwork friction losses, contaminant exposure limits,
and the ventilation aspects of industrial hygiene.
air pollution enGineerinG manual
As an update of the old AP-42 U.S. government publication regarding the applica-
tion of air pollution control devices, this essential resource contains a detailed com-
pendium of application descriptions by industry written by a variety of experienced
designers and application engineers. A wealth of practical and useful information is
Produced by Howden Fan Company, this power-packed book contains excellent
information regarding gas ow rates, gas-moving devices (such as fans), air pollu-
tion control hardware, psychometrics, and related air/gas properties.
inDustrial researCh serViCe’s psyChrometriC tables anD Charts
If you are not familiar with the properties of air and the moisture it can carry,
this book by Zimmerman and Lavine (1953) might appear a bit daunting. Though
computerized gas mixture property predicting programs are now available (see
Psychrometric Problem Solving Program under the “Publication Details” section
that follows), the Psychrometric Tables and Charts are still in daily use by air pollu-
tion control professionals. With these charts and tables, one can accurately predict
gas mixture properties that form the basis of gas cleaning system design.
