Herein, a Sentry Air Systems product study of hexavalent chromium particles, [Cr(VI)], is reported. Due to the popularity of extended life cleanable filter media and health concerns regarding hexavalent chromium exposure in the work place, Sentry Air Systems conducted a study of the efficacy of cleanable filter systems for the maintenance of safe breathing conditions during welding operations that generate [Cr(VI)]. A Sentry Air Systems 450 Series Welding Fume Extractor was used for the containment of a representative stainless steel welding process. The collected data and analytical results suggest that the use of Sentry Air Systems 450 Series Welding Fume Extractor with MERV16 Micro Pleat cleanable filter media allows for safe operator breathing conditions, as shown under the conditions outlined in this paper.
