Abstract

Mechanical screen printing causes occupational problems due to the evaporation of solvent vapours in the workplace air. Laboratory experiments were made in order to find out the efficiency of the local exhaust ventilation of a semiautomatic press with the help of capture degree and occupational hygiene efficiency. In the laboratory tests four different local exhaust solutions were studied. In addition, the effect of local supply air on the worker's breathing air quality was determined. The properly designed local exhaust solutions reduced the worker's solvent exposure by 80-95 %.
