||Evaluation of ventilated sanders in the autobody repair industry
||Aug. 1994, Vol.55, No.8, p.756-759. Illus. 9 ref.
||Orbital and reciprocating sanders were evaluated in an autobody shop to obtain information on the ability of the sanders to control worker dust exposures. When unventilated sanders were used, short-term total dust exposures ranged between 2 and 170mg/m3. When ventilated sanders were used, short term total exposures ranged between 0.22 and 1.2mg/m3. Aerosol photometer measurements showed that ventilation decreased dust exposure by a factor of 10 when body-filling compound was sanded. These results indicate that the use of sanders equipped with high-velocity, low-volume ventilation should be encouraged in the autobody repair industry.
