Abstract
The state of the art of high velocity low volume (HVLV) technology and its application were assessed at the Naval Air Rework Facility, Alameda Naval Air Station (SIC-3721), Alameda, California on June 15, 1983. The glass fiber shop and the plastic shop were surveyed. HVLV sanding equipment was used in the following areas: the glass fiber shop (primarily a radome repair facility); and the plastic shop (a plexiglass canopy repair area). Measurements of exposures from both shops showed exposures below control limits even without HVLV use. Personal and area air samples were taken with the HVLV and with an unventilated sander. Personal exposures were 0.087 milligrams per cubic meter (mg/m3) versus 0.21mg/m3 for HVLV and unventilated tools, respectively. Area exposures were 0.130 versus author concludes that while reduction is achieved, additional controls are needed to provide full protection. Documentation on the full extent of reductions in exposure achieved are desirable if the installations are approved.
