Some Principles Related to Protective Air Enclosures

  • P. A. F. White


Some elements occur and recur in the design of protective air enclosures whatever the design or purpose to which it is to be put. Among these are high efficiency filtration, laminar flow and air flow control. A general account of these principles is given at this stage so that the use of these terms will be more fully understood when the description of various air enclosures is considered in subsequent chapters.
