    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: E06.41 | Committee E06 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    Scope 1.1 This standard measures the capture efficiency of wall mounted domestic range hoods under controlled conditions in a test chamber. 1.2 This standard applies to range hoods that exhaust air to outside and does not apply to recirculating range hoods. 1.3 This standard is intended to quantify the capture efficiency of range hoods under controlled laboratory conditions suitable for rating. 1.4 Only SI units of measurement are used in this standard. If a value for measurement is followed by a value in other units in parentheses, the second value may be approximate. The first stated value is the requirement. 1.5 This standard does not address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
