They vary in the particle size range from 0.01 μm to 100 μm, however, the size distribution may change as volatile liquids evaporate.Read More
Metalworking operations use complex, high-speed cutting tools which require large volumes of fluids to effectively operate. These either cool metal workpieces or lubricate the machinery's tooling during the operation. Several by-products can be produced that can include oil or coolant mist or oil mist smoke. These mists, vapours or smoke can affect the sensitivity of the electronics in machinery and can result in disruption to operations.

In HSE INDG365: Working Safely with Metalworking Fluids guidance, it is recommended that businesses use any enclosures or engineering controls, such as local exhaust ventilation (LEV) to remove or control any mist or vapours produced from the operation process. Workers’ are likely to be at the highest risk of exposure where there are inadequate ventilation arrangements.
