Title Safety study of paint drying ovens
Original title Sicherheitstechnische Untersuchungen an Lacktrockenanlagen [in German]
Bibliographic information Apr. 1972, No.4, p.134-137. Illus. 6 ref.
Abstract It is stated that solvent vapour concentration in drying ovens must be kept below 0.8% by volume, by means of air dilution, and the theoretical principles for chamber and continuous furnaces are considered. Theoretical considerations are given on accident prevention in varnish-impregnation drying and in direct-heat drying plants with a high solvent flow level (approx. 200kg/h); methods of reducing waste-gas solvent concentrations are considered.
