Title Removal of oil mist
Original title Eliminer les brouillards d'huile. [in French]
Bibliographic information Dec. 1976, p.142-150. Illus.
Abstract This article reviews the hazards and other problems of oil mist in machining shops (respiratory disease, dermatitis, cancer; slippery floor surface; bad lighting due to oil film deposited on lights and windows; fire hazard) and takes stock of ways and means of eliminating oil mist; protection of machine tool operators by screens or exhaust enclosures linked to a local exhaust ventilation system with filter or precipitator air purifying; use of non-pollutant cutting oils; preventive maintenance of machinery to avoid lubricating oil leakages and consequent contamination of cutting oils. In addition to numerous examples, several recently marketed appliances for the suppression of oil mist are described on pp.147-150.
