Basic Welding Health Hazards

Welding joins two metal pieces by the use of heat and with or without pressure apply.

Common Welding Processes are:

Health threats by Gases & Fumes

 

Mainly gases and fumes come from different way:

  • Base material and filler material
  • Coating and paints
  • Shielding gases and their chemical reactions
  • Process and different types of consumable used
  • Contaminants in the atmosphere
  • Wrong welding techniques

Health Hazards:

Contact of welding gases and fumes may have Short time impact and Long time impact.

Short time Hazards

  • Irritate the eyes, nose, chest and respiratory tract.
  • Cause coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, bronchitis, pulmonary edema, and pneumonitis .
  • Cause nausea, loss of appetite, vomiting, cramps,  and slow digestion.

Long Time Hazards

?  Welders may chance a variety of chronic lung problems, including: Bronchitis, asthma, pneumonia, emphysema, pneumoconiosis, decreased lung capacity, silicosis, and siderosis.

 

Other Health Hazards:

1.       Heat exposure

  • Skin burns and skin cancer

2.       Noise

  • May also increased metal  stress & blood pressure, and  further cause to heart problems, exhaustion, nervousness, and bad temper.

3.  Eye damage– More than 5% eye injuries in industries and construction are associated with welding and cutting

  • damage to retina
  • damage to cornea, resulting in cataracts
  • permanent eye damage

Arc Welding Machine and Portable Welding Machine

We are well recognized to manufacturing welding machines, especially manufacturer and exporter of Arc Welding Machines. Our range starts from 150 Ampere to 650 Ampere in different designs equipped with latest technology.

Our products are efficient in all welding positions like flat position, horizontal position, vertical position and overhead position. Model CW-ARC150,CW-ARC200,CW-ARC250,CW-ARC320 are portable type arc welding machines, these arc welding machines are easy to carry, light weight and specially designed for movable job purposes.

Basic advantage of portablewelding machine is use in  two phase as well as in single phase connection. So it can be in small scale industries, home base industries, where three phase connection is rarely available. We recommend our arc welding machine for offshore sites and onshore sites both.
