Lead: Secondary Lead Smelter » Raw Materials Processing
Secondary lead smelter feed materials usually require processing before being charged into a smelting furnace. Handling and transporting lead-bearing materials may expose workers to lead-bearing dust during:
- Raw Material Receiving and Storage
- Battery Breaking
- Charge Preparation (drying)
- Material Handling and Transport
