What is Hexavalent Chromium and Why is it a Problem?

According to OSHA, hexavalent chromium is one of the valence states (+6) of the element chromium. It is often produced in industrial processes and added to alloy steel to increase hardenability and corrosion resistance. However, it is known to cause cancer and other issues associated with the respiratory system, kidneys, liver, skin and eyes.

Welding and thermal spraying high chrome alloys produces very small particulate, smaller than one micron in diameter and uniform in size, making collection a challenge. NIOSH considers all hex chrome compounds to be occupational carcinogens.

How to Achieve HSE Compliance?

OSHA sets the standard for allowable hex chrome levels, with the current permissible exposure limit (PEL) of 5 μg/m3 time-weighted average (TWA) in an 8-hour shift. Some energy companies require 1 μg / m^3. IGS has engineered and patented ClearStream HEPA Filtration System that meets current and future occupational exposure limits and ensures uniterrupted HVTS® application.
