General Guidelines For Canopy Hood Sizing

Hot Vs. Cold Process Canopy hood design requires different consideration for both hot and cold processes. Hot processes transfer significant heat to the air surrounding the process via conduction and convection mechanisms. In doing so, thermal drafts are present and can cause upward air currents with air velocities up to a few hundred feet per minute. The design of the canopy hood and exhaust rate must account for these thermal drafts during the sizing phase….
