Lightbulb 4 inlet fume extractor for lady salon

Hello everyone, its my first time posting a question. I did try first to do a search but couldn't find what I needed.

My wife has a lady salon and she would like to install 4 inlet fume extractor for the 4 hair treatment stations. Each opening will have a 16" hood that attaches to a 6" 1.2m long flex hose. That flex hose connects to a 6" 3m long solid duct pipe. and each of the 4 opening is connecting to the main 6" solid pipe by a T-Y connecting style connection to avoid the sharp T style connector.

My question is, what is the appropriate fan size needed to insure proper suction performance at each hood opening? assuming all 4 will be working at the same time.

Also, is there any advantage looking at Centrifugal Blowers vs. In-line fans?

Thanks in advance for any help and support

P.S: we're in Kuwait, and over here there are no building codes what's so ever.

Welcome to the forums.

An axial inline may be all you need.

You may have to install shutoffs above the ceiling for each outlet or the first location will get the bulk of the suction while the one furthest away will get almost nothing. Normally, the main line is much larger than the outlets so that all the outlets receive equal flow.

I see, thanks for the advice. So do you recommend changing way and go with something like the Panasonic ceiling mounted fan?

That's a good exhaust fan but what would you do.... use four of them ?

Cost wise.. a single inline fan would be more effective.

To be frank, cost is a factor but for now I'm concentrating on putting together a system that is reliable in term of suction power, quality and longevity to create a healthy environment inside the salon for both the staff and the customers.

If we were to use such an option, how would the system look like from A-Z?
