Hazardous Chemical Reactivity & Storage

Prevent hazardous uncontrolled chemical reactions with awareness of the reactive chemical hazards at your facility. The following principles are key for safe chemical storage: segregation, protection from physical damage, hazard identification, and fire control. The chart below is a quick reference for determining incompatibility.

Step 1: Determine if there are undesirable consequences
• Toxic gas generation
• Corrosive gas or liquid generation
• Flammable gas generation
• Formation of shock-sensitive or explosive materials
• Explosion
• Fire
• Off-gas generation that can rupture containers
• Sufficient heating to cause runaway reaction

Step 2: Identify mixing scenarios
• Leaking containers
• Pumping into wrong storage tank, vessel
• Cross connected line left open
• Material mislabeled or unlabeled
• Wrong material selected by operator
• Waste materials combined in tank or container
• Waste material combined in sewer
• Contaminated raw material
• Residue from previous batch in equipment
• Cleaning materials left in process equipment
• Fire or explosion

Step 3: Provide controls to prevent mixing
• Training
• Segregation
• Engineering Controls

Storage Guidelines
• Ensure containers are labeled
• Segregate incompatibles by hazard class
• Do not store alphabetically
• Store flammables according to GC property guidelines
• Do not store chemicals above eye level
• Do not overcrowd shelves
• Avoid storing chemicals on floor
• Liquids should be stored in unbreakable packaging

We are not billing you anything to utilize this tool unlike a few other personal discussion forum where customers are billed like $10 for solitary run of the tool.

You give a good idea about the chemical reaction and what is the drawback when you did not have enough education about the chemical reactivity. You should have to gain your knowledge then start working on it. This is a very knowledgeable article for the students.
