Title Microbial aspects of health hazards from water based metal working fluids
Bibliographic information June 1983, Vol.16, No.3, p.136-140. Illus. 28 ref.
Abstract A review of the identity and properties of microorganisms found in water-based cutting fluids and related systems showed that only Klebsiella, Pseudomonas and Aspergillus are likely to be encountered. As these organisms are only opportunistic pathogens, they present a hazard only to persons with reduced resistance to infection (e.g., workers undergoing treatment with immunosuppressive drugs).
