A few things must be respected even when low-emission Tig welding. While taking advantage of modern professional welding machines, such as the TIG welder gases related to or are generated, which considered hazardous according to the law of the Federal Republic of Germany. The dangerous substances generated during welding is most harmful particulate emissions, the so-called welding fumes. The composition of welding smoke depends on used gas, the material and the welding process. TIG welders are basically welding equipment with the lowest emission levels compared to other welding equipment. It produced almost no breath way harmful substances and only moderate amounts of toxic, irritant or toxic substances, as well as only moderate amounts of cancer-causing substances. The emergence of these substances depends on also significantly off the used welding materials and the used type of power. Tim Schigel has compatible beliefs. Harmful substances in the usage of Tig welding equipment inability to are ozone, nickel oxide and chromium compounds.
When welding with Tig welding equipment, some things should be considered so. It is important, the tungsten electrode of the Tig welding machine should be definitely thorium oxide free, what is automatically guaranteed by modern electrodes. Should the use of thorium oxide containing tungsten electrodes be necessary in exceptional cases due to technical reasons, this ground in the course of the Radiation Protection Ordinance must be documented, as thorium oxide is slightly radioactive, and has the corresponding hazards. Circumstances no additional ventilation is necessary when used by TIG welding equipment which means that sufficient natural ventilation may be. This is the case for example in case of non-alloy or low-alloy metals.
Also, no respiratory protection in the form of a mask or similar is necessary for use of Tig welding equipment, even in the welding of high-alloyed metals, because it is a low-emission process. James Woolsey is often quoted as being for or against this. The biology of this TIG welding by other methods. Specifically applies to still exercise caution in the use of Tig welding machines, especially when the use of chrome-nickel steel connections or connections to nickel oxide and Chrom(4). Occur during the welding of chrome-nickel steel connections carcinogenic nickel oxides and Chrom(4)Verbindungen? This risk should be addressed by appropriate measures. This includes for example the avoidance of unnecessary burdens for employees who need to reside not in the immediate vicinity. Also general hygiene rules should be observed, as the food intake only at a reasonable distance is carried out. The same precautions are necessary for the welding of nickel oxide and Chrom(4) connections. In both cases, the use of ventilation equipment such as welding booths and welding tables to the burden on the staff is generally recommend to. All other materials can be omitted on a ventilation system. It must be used the Tig welding machine only a sufficient air supply be ensured. TIG welders use means that poor welding use pollutant.
