The author discusses why good cargo hold ventilation is necessary and describes the aim of ventilation to be "to ensure fully unharmful working zones in all parts of the cargo holds". He refers to the problems associated with vehicle exhaust gases and examines the limit values for gas concentrations, ventilation requirements and plant arrangement. He describes his company's system "Dirivent" which is based on the control effects of air jets and proceeds to explain its application and advantages with additional comments on "sound levels" and "sound pressure levels".
