beryllium dust and fumes

Beryllium Dust or Fumes Canada.ca

Beryllium is a confirmed human carcinogen. The critical effects of exposure to beryllium are lung cancer and berylliosis. The present ACGIH TLV (the legal exposure limit) for beryllium is only 2 micrograms of the element per cubic meter of inhaled air and is under review. Therefore, exposure to dust, fumes and substances containing beryllium

About Beryllium Department of Energy

The most significant disadvantage of beryllium as an industrial material is the toxicity of its dust, fumes, and soluble salts. Beryllium's brittleness is the down side of its advantageous stiffness. Brittleness also increases the hazards associated with beryllium's toxicity. Unless ventilation and other controls are used, small particles and

Beryllium Overview Occupational Safety and Health

The element beryllium is a grey metal that is stronger than steel and lighter than aluminum. Its physical properties of great strength-to-weight, high melting point, excellent thermal stability and conductivity, reflectivity, and transparency to X-rays make it an essential material in the aerospace, telecommunications, information technology, defense, medical, and nuclear industries.
