||Electric and magnetic fields at three pulp and paper mills
||Apr. 1994, Vol.55, No.4, p.358-363. Illus. 26 ref.
||Extremely low frequency (60Hz) electric and magnetic field levels were measured at three Canadian pulp and paper mills, using area point-in-time measurements. Most electric field levels were below limit of detection of 1V/m; the highest measured field was 47V/m. Measured magnetic field strengths ranged from less than the limit of detection of 0.125mG to 706mG, with a median of 1.6mG. Magnetic field levels were higher in mills that consume more electric power, but worker exposures could not be predicted according to plant power consumption. Overall, electric and magnetic field levels in the three pulp and paper mills were similar to those experienced by the general population. However, maximum magnetic field intensities in some areas were as high as those experienced by electrical workers.
