1.1 Scope. This publication includes the recommended procedures for sampling and methods of analysis for gases that may be formed during the use of various welding and allied processes. These gases include the following: (1) Ozone (O3)(2) Carbon Monoxide (CO)(3) Nitric Oxide (NO) + Nitrogen Dioxide (NO2) = Oxides of Nitrogen (NOx) (4) Gaseous Fluorides Summaries of the acceptable methods are presented in the body of this document. Detailed descriptions of NIOSH1 and OSHA2 methods and references are presented in the Annexes. This standard makes use of the International System of Units (SI). 1.2 Purpose. This publication is intended for use by personnel who are responsible for sample collection, sample analysis, and evaluation of the environment of personnel involved with welding and allied processes. This guide provides the most widely recognized, safe methods for the sampling and analysis to be used in the evaluation of airborne concentrations of gases commonly formed during welding.
Covers contaminants in the welding environment, including ozone, carbon monoxide, nitric oxide, nitrogen dioxide, and gaseous fluoride. Uses OSHA and NIOSH analytical methods, and the... View More
