A question - what is the best degree of exhaust for soldering?
Here’s the original question poised to me:
Second, we met with an engineer today about the metal studio. We’re
getting closer, Joy. What he needs to know is the quantity of gas in
the tanks we want to use. What would you recommend or suggest. What
is the cubic feet of gas in the tank. And it looks like we might be
able to keep the tanks in the room. There is a maximum amount of gas
in the code specs and he thinks this could work.
And third, could you direct me to a source for the venting hoods we
would want to have, and any recommendations. I know they should be
able to be regulated as to the degree of exhaust because, in my
understanding, soldering requires less draw, than lampworking. (I
recommended HVAC ductwork, for that is what I have).
I have been working with a non-profit organization that is trying to
setup a jewelry/lampworking studio and I’m getting questions I’m not
sure how to answer, but I’m the metalworking/jewelry consultant. I
can set upa jewelry lab for best efficiency and layout, but amount
of degree in exhaust has never arised for me. I’m still having
trouble finding out thecu. ft. capacity for a 5 tank (the big 5’
tanks) for I only use the B tanks.
