The tables below indicates necessary capture velocities of evacuating air in distance x from outlet openings to avoid pollution products transferred to surrounding rooms and environments.

The pollution source is in distance - x - from the outlet opening.

- v1 -
Galvanic baths, stain baths, kitchen hoods, smith hoods etc. small 0.2 - 0.5 40 - 100
Spray painting, unloading and loading of bags, welding etc. moderate 0.5 - 1.0 100 - 200
Unloading moulds high 1.0 - 2.0 200 - 400
