UNIQUE AIR CURTAIN INSTALLATION SOLVES DIFFICULT AIRPORT PROBLEM

The article considers the design of an air curtain in operation at LaGuardia Airport since 1971, the purpose of which is to keep jet exhaust fumes from migrating, due to mass diffusion and inadequate ventilation system exhaust, to the passenger luggage pick-up area. The design consists of a negative pressure outdoor vestibule, coupled with a slightly less negative exhaust system for handling the air immediately adjacent to the door opening. The system has an axial - flow constant speed exhaust fan which discharges the unwanted air toward jet aircraft away from the building. A smaller constant speed fan handles interior air.
