Typical Scenarios Where Fume Extraction Is Employed
A fume extraction system is used for a range of industrial applications, and works by using a fan to pull fumes and loose particles into a filtration system that removes toxicities from the air. Similar to smoke extraction systems, they work to keep occupants of a space safe during activities that could present danger. Fume extraction can be employed in a variety of use cases, including but not limited to:
Powder filling processes
Why Is Online Simulation with SimScale Needed for This Application?
Fume and smoke extraction systems are crucial to the safety of occupants within a space. Therefore, it is extremely important to test and evaluate the system for its performance before prototyping or implementing it. This analysis can be done early in the design process with the assistance of online simulation.
Using online CFD simulation from SimScale, you can evaluate the flow distribution, find areas of recirculation, and even test different operating conditions for your application.
