||Jan.-Feb. 1977, Vol.68, No.1, p.22-37. Illus. 36 ref.
||The concentrations and composition of the welding gases and fumes produced using various types of electrode are analysed. The occupational lung disease hazard is estimated on the basis of the cumulative effect of their constituents (which together are at 300% of exposure limits). The kinetics of welding fumes are examined and a section is devoted to prevention measures: general ventilation, exhaust ventilation at the source (mobile hood), personal protective equipment.
