SCOPE. This Unified Facilities Criteria (UFC) provides criteria for the
design of ventilation systems that control contaminants generated from industrial
PURPOSE OF CRITERIA. Criteria are developed to define requirements
during the design of industrial ventilation systems. Chapter 2 provides general criteria and
Chapters 3 through 10 provide criteria for specific processes. Use the general criteria
presented in Chapter 2 along with the applicable specific criteria presented in Chapters 3
through 10 to design the ventilation system. For all other ventilation applications, use the
criteria in Chapter 2.
Criteria contained in this UFC should be interpreted as the minimum
required and should be improved where current technology or situation warrants. Users
of this UFC are advised to consult the most current edition of the standards.
This UFC does not incorporate individual state and local environmental
requirements. It is the sole responsibility of the cognizant design personnel to design
an industrial ventilation system that complies with state and local environmental
SPECIFIC PROCESSES. The specific processes addressed in this
handbook are asbestos delagging, torpedo refurbishing (Otto Fuel II), fiberglass reinforced
plastic fabrication and repair, abrasive blasting, woodworking, battery maintenance, paint
spray booths, and aircraft corrosion control hangers.
