Abstract
Control technology for reducing worker exposures in the aluminum processing industry (SIC-3361) is reviewed. Engineering and work practice controls are described for ore handling and storage, green carbon, carbon bake and potline operations. Applications are discussed for Hartmann loaders, railcar dumping building, oil sprays, enclosures, systems automation, and ventilation. The authors conclude that these techniques are very effective in reducing worker exposures, and that good work practices, housekeeping, and maintenance of ventilation systems are essential.
