Actually I don’t think these are the most serious issues. Chromium and Nickel fumes are carcinogenic, and possibly Iron as well. You should probably test for allthe metals involved.

I will be monitoring welding fumes in our student welding bay and am looking for suggestions of anything to look for other than particulates, carbon monoxide and carbon dioxide.


Thanks for any suggestions…
