Capturing Weld Fumes at the Source

Posted by Jim DiLeo on Jan 9, 2017 10:41:46 AM

Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is one of today’s most popular welding methods in nearly all industrial manufacturing fields. This is a positive development; however, the process has a wide range of risks for the welder. Welders protect themselves from the negative effects of welding by wearing protective gear to protect the body and eyes from burns, electrical shock and bright light and ultraviolet radiation.

New Threshold Limits for Manganese

Posted by Matthew Sciannella on Jan 4, 2017 10:20:44 AM

Fusion welding and pressure welding processes both produce visible smoke and fumes that contain harmful metal fume and gas byproducts that can be hazardous to a welder’s health. Manganese oxide has gained so much attention as a hazardous element found in welding fumes that it has warranted a closer study of its side effects.
