AFAIK never used in canon.

Not sure how this is different from the noun {ghImwI'} "exhaust", used one in the BOP Poster: 

  peng baHjan tuj ghImwI' 
  heat exhaust for torpedo launcher (KBoP)

Is {yIb} more of an opening while {ghImwI'} - derived from {ghIm} "exile" - is an active device?

taQbang 		exhaust (n) (waste?)
pugh 			dregs (n)
veQ			garbage (n)

tlhuch 		exhaust (v)
vuj  			expel, eject (v) (qep'a' 2016)
nIj 			leak (v)
tlhuD 		emit (v)
natlh 		use up (v)
