Characteristics of Welding Fumes

Research output: Book/ReportReport


The aerosols from 13 common electric arc welding processes have been characterized regarding total emission, particle size distribution, elemental composition and, when applicable, the oxidation state of chromium. The characterizations have been performed systematically for different combinations of welding current and welding voltage.
