  Refer to NRC Reg guide 8.21 , you will find some face velocity specifications.

Subject: [ RadSafe ] Fume hood face velocity specifications 

Hello radsafers, 


I am looking for information regarding where the requirements that a 
fume hood's face velocity be 80-120 FPM come from. Is this a regulation 
or best practice? I can only find a reference to this in an ANSI/AIHA 


Thanks for your help,
