Abstract
Evaluation of hazards from exposure to dusts from grinding and sandblasting operations, heat, degreasing operations, solvent test operations, and "Acryloid" glue operations, in the manufacture of high temperature alloy components (SIC-349) for the gas turbine industry. Evaluation also covers exposure to dusts of chromium (7440473), cobalt (7440484), molybdenum (7439987), nickel (7440020), and iron (7439896). Solvents involved in the operations are ethylene-dichloride (107062), acetone, 1,1,1-trichloroethane (25323891) and trichloroethylene (79016). Data are given for the evaluation design and evaluation methods, 8-hour time weighted concentration, and pathological effects of various types of dusts. Toxic effects of the metals and chemicals include cancer of the lung, nose, and sinus, pneumonitis, mucosal irritation, ciderosis, irritation of the eyes and nose, narcosis, headaches, dizziness, vertigo, tremors, nausea, vomiting, insomnia, fatigue, liver damage and lightheadedness. Environmental survey results are given for grinding area, acryloid area, degreasing area, and furnace area with recommendations for each area based on medical survey results.
