Appl Occup Environ Hyg 2000 Oct; 15(10):713-720
This is the report of a project performed to determine the feasibility of using automated paint-removal technology on steel structures (ships, bridges, storage tanks, etc.). The major goal of the project was to determine the current status of the technology. This involved determining the number of prototypes currently available, the development stage of each prototype, and on which steel structures each prototype can be used. Observation of prototype systems in operation was a critical component of this project.
