Containment Capabilites of a Class II, Type A2 BSC Using a Chemo Pad on the Work Surface
- To study the containment capabilities of the BSC when using a chemo plus prep mat on the worksurface.
- A NuAire model NU-425-500 Class II, Type A2 BSC was set to its nominal average velocity airflow of 70 fpm downflow and 105 fpm inflow.
- Personnel protection tests followed NSF/ANSI 49:2002 at nominal airflows using a chemo prep plus mat (10-3/8" x 16-1/2" size) on the worksurface in different configurations. The following configuration along with the BSC test report and runs were represented:
|Test setup configuration (fig)||BSC test report/run|
|Dry mat (fig. 1)||test # 1 / run 1 & 2|
|Dry mat w/glassware (fig. 2)||test # 1 / run 3|
|Wet crumpled mat (fig. 3)||test # 2 / run 1 & 2|
|Wet crumpled mat w/glassware (fig. 4)||test # 2 / run 3|
