Title Use of the welding arc light in ventilation technology
Original title Ispol'zovanie svetovogo ėffekta svaročnoj dugi v ventiljacionnoj tehnike [in Russian]
Bibliographic information Nov. 1976, No.11, p.27. Illus.
Abstract This article describes the use of the light emitted by the welding arc to guide the exhaust ventilation equipment along the welding bench. Photoiodes fitted on this equipment detect the movements of the arc light, and the signals are converted to move the exhaust hood. This automation results in greater ventilation efficiency as well as energy savings.
