Default Venting a 3730XL

In the final hours of the Sanger era, I am finally getting around to venting our ABI 3730XL. We have 4" diameter flexible tubing connected to an inline fan and wired to our air return vent. (Which goes directly out the chimney because that part of our lab is on 100% outside air...)

Any advice to offer before we make the final connections and turn the fan on?

It did not cause any problems. We had largely overcome the lab excess heat issues by the time this was accomplished, so I can't tell you if it was particularly effective. But, near as I can tell, the instrument continued to work exactly the same.

This was more of an academic exercise then
