After the leakage of potassium hydroxide, it will affect the surrounding environment. We all know how to deal with the emergency after the leakage before, so this article will introduce the main points of the post leakage treatment. Due to the particularity of the product, it will cause corrosion to the surrounding and the operator, so we must keep some details in mind.
Protective measures, protective equipment and emergency disposal procedures for operators: isolate the contaminated area and restrict access. It is suggested that emergency treatment personnel should wear self-contained breathing apparatus, Nanjing potassium hydroxide, acid and alkali proof work clothes, rubber high boots, rubber apron, protective glasses, rubber gloves and helmet. When the liquid touches the human body, take off clothes immediately and wash it with a large amount of water. Do not directly touch the leakage or small amount of leakage. Avoid dust. Collect it with a clean shovel in a dry, clean and covered container, or wash it with a large amount of water. The washing water is diluted and put into the waste water system. Large amount of leakage: collect, recycle or transport to waste treatment site for disposal.
Environmental protection measures: prevent from flowing into restricted spaces such as sewers and drainage ditches.
Storage and removal methods of leaked chemicals and disposal materials used: small amount of leaked chemicals are washed with water and potassium hydroxide is used
After dilution, put it into the waste water system. Large amount of leakage: build dike or dig pit to take in. Transfer to tank car or special collector by pump, recycle or transport to waste treatment site for disposal.
Preventive measures to prevent secondary hazards: prevent splashing when washing with water, causing burns, so wear fire protection products. Special attention should be paid to the impact on the water body.
After the leakage of potassium hydroxide, special attention should be paid to its own safety. Therefore, in order to avoid this situation, potassium hydroxide manufacturers should follow the corresponding procedures in the process of packaging, transportation and use, so as to avoid unnecessary trouble caused by private operation.
