Title Respirable dust control in grinding gray iron castings
Bibliographic information Feb. 1987, Vol.48, No.2, p.181-187. Illus. 11 ref.
Abstract The size distribution and concentration of airborne dust were measured in a pilot grinding operation. Increased exhaust ventilation, installation of baffles and/or use of an air jet to deflect the entrained air stream reduced the respirable dust concentration. The combination of these techniques reduced the concentration 20-fold.
