Engineering, architecture and consulting firm, Burns and McDonnels' Angela Vawter has an interesting take on ways to improve air quality in metal finishing operations, and also for any shop which has chemical tanks:

 

"When you think of criminals, the first thing that comes to mind probably isn’t humidity or hazardous mists and vapors. But these so-called ‘criminals’—indoor air quality criminals, that is—can escape from open surface tanks causing irritation or harm to operators, as well as corroding the surrounding building structure and supporting utility systems. Properly ventilating exhaust and supply air of open surface tanks is key to thwarting these fugitives before they can inflict damage—and can ultimately save a company a whole lot of trouble."
