Title A comparison of iron oxide fume inside and outside of welding helmets
Bibliographic information Feb. 1985, Vol.46, No.2, p.89-93. Illus. 7 ref.
Abstract Airborne iron-oxide fume concentrations were determined simultaneously at 4 body locations (left and right front shoulders, front chest, inside the helmet) during a normal welding task. The fume concentrations in the actual breathing zone inside the helmet were 36 to 71% lower than outside concentrations, depending on the type of welding and the welder's posture.
