The generation of welding fumes during Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is an inevitable part of the process. Welding fumes consist of metal oxide particles that can remain suspended and if inhaled by welders it can affect their health. The chemical composition of the fume particulates and the FFR are important parameters in determining the potential dangers of welding fumes. Gas metal arc welding (GMAW) is an important industrial process used for the joining of metals. The generation of welding… CONTINUE READING
