Default Re: Different Style Tanks?

That's called Flash Burn, what it is is the ultraviolet rays produced by the welding method (stick,machine no difference except machine welding is worse because of less defuseing smoke) and what happens is the outer layer of the eye is burned and then blisters, when the blisters brake is when the Tabasco sause anoligy comes in and it's a good one, the eye being the fastest healing organ will heal it's self in about 4 to 12 hours depending on the severity of the burn, this is a VERY unpleasant process, all the Doc's can do is give a salve to stop the eye lid from causing friction and more damage,,,protect your eyes even if your 10 feet away, I speak from 35 years of experience, no BS just fact.
