Re: Moisture Exhaust Ducts??
As I read it, they are referring to the moist air created by the dryer, as it dries wet clothes, and exhausting it through ductwork to the great outdoors.
Another way to read 504.3.1 is:
The first two sentences could apply to any ductwork that exhausts moist air as a reference for other code sections, after that it pretty much talks about specifics for dryers.
