||Report intended to serve as a guide for buyers of process ventilation systems for welding. It states that the system should be well adapted to the production and personnel of the workplace. Most existing systems assume that the welder frequently moves the local exhaust and that he will position it accurately. In many cases the exhaust is therefore not used at all. Consequently, it is important that the equipment be as easy to use as possible and that the welder concerned take part in the process of selecting the ventilation system. The different types of local exhausts available for welding are described and evaluated. When installing a new local exhaust system it is important to determine how the ventilation systems already existing in the building are affected. How the maintenance of the new system is to be carried out should be planned in advance.
