Flow through a Peirce-Smith Converter Hood

Flow of furnace and ingress gases in a Peirce-Smith converter hood. The purple streamlines show how ingress air enters the hood beneath the hood-gate, mixes with SO2 from the converter, and then exits through the gap at the top of the hood gate. Thus large quantities of SO2 leak from the hood and contaminate the surrounding environment.
