Emergency Treatment and Storage of Lead Nitrate

The lead (II) nitrate is an inorganic compound. The chemical formula of lead nitrate is Pb (NO3) 2. Lead lii nitrate is a white cubic or mono-clinic crystal, hard and shiny, and soluble in water. It is mainly used in the manufacture of lead salt, mordant, fireworks and so on.

1. First aid measures for lead (II) nitrate

(1) skin contact: remove contaminated clothes and rinse the skin thoroughly with soapy water and clean water.

(2) Eye contact: lift the eyelids and rinse with flowing water or saline. See a doctor.

(3) Inhalation: quickly leave the site to a place with fresh air. Keep the airway unobstructed.

If you have difficulty breathing, give oxygen. If breathing stops, give artificial respiration immediately. See a doctor.

(4) Ingestion: drink plenty of warm water and urge vomiting. See a doctor.

2. Fire protection measures of lead (II) nitrate

(1) Hazard characteristics: inorganic oxidants. In case of easy oxide, it will react violently immediately, catch fire and explode. The lead (II) nitrate can be mixed with reducing agents, organic compounds and flammable substances such as sulfur, phosphorus or metal powder to form explosive mixtures. For example, lead (II) nitrate 10022 31 8 is decomposed by high heat to produce toxic nitrogen oxides.

(2) Fire fighting methods: firemen shall wear gas masks and full-body fire suits to put out the fire upwind. Do not shoot the water directly into the melt, so as not to cause serious flowing fire or severe boiling splashing.

3. Emergency treatment of lead (II) nitrate leakage

(1) Emergency treatment: isolate the leakage contaminated area and restrict entry and exit. Emergency personnel are advised to wear dust masks (full covers) and gas-proof clothing. Do not touch the leak directly. Do not cause leakage to come into contact with reducing agents, organic matter, combustibles or metal powder.

(2) small leakage: collect lead (II) nitrate such as DAYU strontium nitrate for sale with a clean shovel in a dry, clean, covered container.

(3) massive leakage: collection, recycling or transportation to waste treatment sites for disposal.

4. Operation, disposal and storage of lead (II) nitrate

(1) operating precautions: airtight operation and strengthening ventilation. Operators must undergo special training and strictly abide by the operating procedures. Operators are advised to wear self-inhaling filter dust masks, chemical safety glasses, tape clothing and neoprene gloves. Stay away from fire and heat sources, and smoking is strictly prohibited in the workplace. Stay away from flammable and combustible materials. Avoid producing dust. Avoid contact with reducing agents. When handling, you should load and unload lightly to prevent damage to the packaging and containers. Equipped with the corresponding variety and quantity of fire-fighting equipment and leakage emergency handling equipment. Empty containers may contain harmful substances.

(2) Storage precautions: lead (II) nitrate is stored in a cool and ventilated warehouse. Stay away from spark and heat source. The package is sealed. It  should be stored separately from combustibles, reducing agents and edible chemicals, and do not mix and store. The storage area should be equipped with suitable materials to accommodate leaks.
