Abstract:

The report describes the procedures and results obtained from sampling the emissions from a plasma torch cutting operation. The emissions were sampled from the stack used to direct the exhaust system air away from adjacent buildings. The exhaust air was sampled for particulate matter, nitrogen oxides, and ozone. An octave band analysis of the noise exposure to the operator was performed and a study of the radiation hazards to the operator is being conducted. Author
