Oilmist & Coolant Contaminants
Oil mist may form when high pressure oils such as fuel oil, lubricating oil, hydraulic oil, or other types of oils are sprayed through a narrow crack, or when leaked oil connects with a high temperature surface, vaporizes and comes into contact with low air temperature. Metal cutting or grinding fluids are of three basic types: straight oil (insoluble), oil-in-water emulsions (soluble) and synthetic or semi-synthetic. All contain a variety of additives to improve performance.
Human exposure to oil mists occurs primarily by direct skin contact with the liquid or by skin and respiratory contact after fluid misting. Dermatitis caused by primary or direct skin irritation is the most prevalent health effect of exposure to cutting fluids. Occasionally allergic dermatitis is seen which is related to the development of sensitization to one or more of the additive components. Long-term exposure to certain cutting fluids, however, is believed to have resulted in certain types of skin cancer, especially scrotal cancer.
Fumes and other gaseous contaminants can be extremely dangerous to both the health of your employees and your business. Exposure can lead to a wide variety of illness and poor health in the longer term, as well as significantly affect productivity and workforce performance.
