Why Use a Chemical Safety Cabinet?

Release Date:2021-07-06
Nowadays, the industry is facing more and more dangerous chemicals. Its safe storage, how to reduce fire accidents caused by chemicals, and protect life and equipment safety are called urgent problems. Fire can consume life ruthlessly and destroy property in an instant.

After analyzing every factory fire accident, people found that most fire accidents are related to the classification, storage and handling of flammable and hazardous chemicals in the company, and most types of accidents can be avoided.

For example, at 9:20 on the morning of December 19, a fire accident occurred in the first workshop of Rike Chemical Co., Ltd., Changle County, Weifang City, Shandong Province. Thick black smoke enveloped the plant area. The fire spread rapidly and the fire department arrived in time. The fire was put out. At present, the accident has caused 7 deaths and 4 injuries.

At about 10:39 on December 15, 2018, a fire broke out in the production plant of Chengdu Jianzhong Fragrance and Fragrance Co., Ltd. in Xinjin Industrial Park (Dengshuang Town), Sichuan. The accident caused 14 injuries and the injured were sent to the hospital for treatment as soon as possible. No life is in danger for the moment.

Because enterprises in industrial parks are often closely arranged, after a fire and explosion accident, it is very likely to cause a chain explosion between adjacent enterprises, which is likely to cause mass deaths and injuries. In addition, industrial park fires generally have the characteristics of rapid spreading of combustion, long duration, high temperature and strong radiation, which increase the difficulty of fire fighting and rescue. All correct and standardized storage of flammable and hazardous chemicals classification is essential.

Chemical storage cabinets are used to standardize the storage of flammable liquids, combustible liquids and certain hazardous chemicals, including corrosive chemicals. They are also used to store flammable and combustible oils and oils, pesticides, etc. Chemical production companies, laboratories, medical institutions and other places use different types of chemicals, so different safety cabinets are needed to store them.
So what is a chemical safety cabinet?

At present, in many factories (such as printing factories), chemical liquids are used in the production process, such as thinner water, machine water, washing water, ethanol, etc. Chemical liquids such as these are flammable or combustible, which means that these chemicals have a very low ignition point and may spontaneously ignite when they reach a certain temperature. Then the storage of these chemicals is particularly critical. Unreasonable storage and irregular management can easily cause leakage, and once a leakage occurs, it may cause a fire. In recent years, fire incidents have occurred from time to time.

In August 2019, more than 42 typical accidents occurred in China, resulting in 73 deaths, 187 injuries and 2 missing. Among them, 22 were fire and explosion accidents, 6 were traffic accidents, 2 were mine accidents, 8 were construction accidents, and 4 were poisoning. Compared with other months of this year, the number of deaths and injuries has dropped significantly. However, fire and explosion accidents accounted for nearly 50%, and accidents involving poisoning and suffocation in limited space operations are showing a rising trend.

Fires have seriously endangered people's lives and property safety. For this reason, fire safety is also particularly important. There are many factors that cause fires, but many of them are not good for fire prevention measures. If various safety and fire prevention equipment are perfect, should the probability of fire occurrence be greatly reduced? The answer is yes. Industrial fire safety equipment, hazardous chemical safety cabinets, can safely store thinner, wiper water, board washing water, ethanol, alcohol, paint, gasoline, and a variety of hazardous chemicals. Chemical safety cabinets are also called fire-proof cabinets, safety cabinets, explosion-proof cabinets, flammable and combustible liquid storage cabinets, and oil drum cabinets. Flammable and combustible chemicals are stored in a chemical safety cabinet to greatly improve safety.

Chemical safety cabinets can effectively prevent fires, control spills, protect people's lives, and protect property and the environment. Because of its small size, it can be placed in the workplace to store flammable and combustible chemicals, without frequent trips to the hazardous chemical storage room, reducing costs, improving work efficiency, and saving time and effort. Chemical safety cabinets can effectively manage dangerous goods. Safety cabinets of different colors have different functions and different chemicals that can be stored. They are stored in different categories, which is easy to manage at a glance.

The chemical safety cabinet is made of high-quality cold-rolled steel plates. The overall structure is a double-layer fire-resistant steel plate. There is a 38mm insulating layer between the two steel plates. Lead-free epoxy paint is sprayed inside and outside the cabinet. The 1.2mm high-quality cold-rolled steel plate is used with phosphating treatment. , Epoxy resin spraying, high temperature curing. The bottom is designed with anti-leakage threshold, which can retain the leaking liquid. Ventilation openings with safety devices on the left and right sides of the safety cabinet can effectively reduce the damage to the operator in the event of a safety accident. A three-point linkage lock is adopted. The chemical safety cabinet has passed the EU CE certification and has reached the OSHA standard (U.S. Occupational Safety and Health Administration). The chemical safety cabinet has passed the national ISO9001 quality system certification. The products sold must be qualified. The chemical safety cabinet has undergone high explosion-proof inspection analysis and fire resistance inspection analysis. With explosion-proof certificate and fire-resistance certificate, there are many non-certified safety cabinets circulating in the city. Be sure to choose a safety cabinet with safety quality certification.
