Undercounter Corrosive Safety Cabinet Questions
Are all bases corrosive?
Generally speaking, all bases have some degree of corrosivity. Strong bases such as sodium hydroxide are extremely corrosive. As a best practice, bases should be stored separately from acids in an appropriate safety cabinet.
Where should corrosive chemicals be stored?
Corrosive chemicals should first be stored in an appropriate container that is properly labeled. These containers should be stored in a safety cabinet that is specifically designed for corrosive service. This means the cabinet is constructed of polyethylene, wood laminate, or steel with polyethylene liners on the shelves and in the sump.
What are the requirements for corrosive chemical storage?
The requirements for corrosive chemical storage vary depending on local, state, and federal regulations, as well as the type and quantity of corrosive chemicals being stored. However, some common requirements for the storage of corrosive chemicals include:
- Proper labeling: All containers of corrosive chemicals should be clearly labeled with the contents, the manufacturer's name, and any relevant hazard information, such as the material SDS.
- Compatibility: Corrosive chemicals should be stored in containers that are compatible with the specific chemical, and that will not react with the contents or release toxic fumes. These containers should be stored in a safety cabinet designed for the safe storage of acid, bases and other toxic chemicals.
- Segregation: Corrosive chemicals should be stored separately from flammable, explosive, or incompatible materials to prevent chemical reactions.
- Ventilation: Storage areas for corrosive chemicals should be well-ventilated to prevent the buildup of toxic fumes.
- Spill containment: Corrosive chemicals should be stored in containers or corrosive cabinets that are designed with leakproof sumps to contain spills and prevent leaks.
- Security: Storage areas for corrosive chemicals should be secured to prevent unauthorized access.
- Fire resistance: Storage areas for corrosive chemicals should be fire-resistant, or located in an area that is protected from fire.
- Training: Personnel who handle or work near corrosive chemicals should receive proper training in the safe handling and storage of these substances.
Overall, the storage of corrosive chemicals should be managed to minimize the risk of accidents, leaks, spills, and exposure to toxic fumes, while ensuring compliance with regulations and protecting the health and safety of personnel and the environment.
Where do you store corrosive chemicals in a lab?
Corrosive chemicals in a laboratory should be stored in designated storage areas that are specifically designed to meet the needs of these materials, such as corrosive safety cabinets. Corrosive safety cabinets are constructed to protect against corrosive chemicals and are made of materials that are compatible with these chemicals. The following guidelines should be followed when storing corrosive chemicals in a laboratory using corrosive safety cabinets:
- Segregated storage: Corrosive and toxic chemicals should be stored in a separate area, away from flammable and reactive materials.
- Appropriate containers: Corrosive chemicals should be stored in containers that are made of compatible materials and are designed to prevent leakage and spills.
- Corrosive safety cabinets: Corrosive chemicals should be stored in corrosive safety cabinets that will contain spills and leaks and can be equipped with ventilation if necessary to prevent the buildup of hazardous fumes. Always check with Authorities Having Jurisdiction for cabinet ventilation requirements.
- Labeling: Containers should be clearly labeled with the name of the chemical and its hazard symbols, as well as the date of receipt and any relevant safety information.
By following these guidelines, you can help to ensure the safe storage of corrosive chemicals in a laboratory.
