Containment Systems: A Design Guide is the only book that covers containment, specifically for the process industries. This Guide covers the range of containment equipment from simple air-flow control devices to enclosures that restrict exposures to well below a microgram per cubic meter averaged over a working day. The selection of a particular containment system for a particular transfer operation can be difficult because of the wide choice available. This Guide provides a structured approach to the selection process.
