  • Welding Fumes and the effects of Manganese

    The potential risks of welding operations include the potential to breathe in metal fumes and toxic gases. Fume particles are formed from the vaporisation of molten metal that occurs during the process. These particles are very fine in size and may join together to form larger particles.. The biggest risk is exposure to the manganese contained in fumes that are given off during welding. ...

  • Welding fume hazards

    Welding is tough work.  Not many who begin as welders retire as welders.  Eventually practically every welder develops cataracts.  Neck and back problems are also a foregone conclusion. There is also a long list of possible health problems depending on the type of welding.  Recently, the Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA) identified hexavalent chromium as a ...

  • WHO report on diesel fumes puts sharp focus on need for effective monitoring

    The World Health Organisation this month reclassified the dangers of diesel exhaust fumes, upgrading the risk from probably carcinogenic to a definite cause of cancer. The WHO report is based on the findings of research on workers in high risk areas, and puts a sharp focus on the need for effective monitoring in industries such as mining, rail, transportation, construction, power generation and ...

  • Recovering Valuable Chemicals from Air Emissions

    Air emissions in many cases are a waste of valuable natural resources that should have become useful chemicals. In some cases the economic payback from recycling/reuse of air emissions can be almost as much a motivation to control air pollution as government regulations. Examples of recycling and reuse of air emissions are sulfur oxides emissions that can be made into sulfuric acid, cement ...
