Title Local exhaust ventilation problems of stationary welding workplaces and new solutions
Original title Probleme und neuere Lösungen zur Absaugung an stationären Schweissplätzen [in German]
Bibliographic information 1982, Vol.34, No.2, p.90-93. Illus. 3 ref.
Abstract Review of the effects of working methods, ventilation and convection currents on atmospheric contamination during welding. Presentation of new designs for welding benches with: (a)built-in exhaust ventilation hood; (b)additional exhaust ventilation slots; and (c)a positive ventilation slot at the front of the welding bench producing an air curtain which forces the fumes into the exhaust ventilation hood. The effectiveness of the blower/exhaust device is shown diagrammaticaly.
