4). This chamber has a tangential upper inlet, an upper cone to allow even distribution, an exposure section, and a lower cone for exhaust. , 1959). It was originally used for simultaneous exposure of 4 monkeys, 8 dogs and 40 rats using two levels of cages. Animals could be observed easily with windows that formed the chamber walls. Vertical-flow chambers with cubic exposure sections, tangential inlets, and pyramid-shaped upper and lower sections (Fig. , 1968. 8 m 3 were designed. 3 m 3 volume.

In this system, temperature and relative humidity (RH) are well regulated, oxygen is automatically replenished, and C02, ammonia, and other vapors are removed continuously. This system can be used for both toxicological and pharmacokinetic studies of aerosols and gases. The dose delivered is easier to estimate from the steady airborne concentrations, and the environmental conditions in the chamber allow long-term studies with a large number of animals. However, a dynamic exposure system consumes larger quantities of test material than either the static or recirculating systems.

These systems maintain a steady concentration with minimum test material. Fig. , 1992). A dedicated PC is used to monitor and control the operation of the system. , 1992, with permission). is not recirculated. After an initial buildup of the toxicant, a stable chamber concentration is maintained if the generation rate remains constant and is usually reproducible on a daily basis once conditions have been optimized. , 1959). In this system, temperature and relative humidity (RH) are well regulated, oxygen is automatically replenished, and C02, ammonia, and other vapors are removed continuously.
