Gas-Burning Heaters Cause Ultrafine Particle Spike

Abstract:
Research has shown that "hot" processes such as welding and high-speed machining can generate ultrafine particles (particles with a diameter less than 100 nanometers) that may be harmful to workers' health. But a new study of nanoparticle levels in an Indianapolis engine machining and assembly plant concludes that a major source of nanoparticle emissions was the exhaust from its gas-burning heating system.
