Emergency Treatment of Hexachloroethane

Hexachloroethane, also known as carbon hexachloride, is an organic substance used as a raw material for organic synthesis, a degassing agent for aluminum and its alloys, and is the most toxic chlorinated hydrocarbon, which is toxic to the human central nervous system.

1. Use of hexachloroethane products

(1) Use 1: DAYU hexachloroethane for sale is used as lubricant additive.

(2) Use 2: Hexachloroethane is used as a solvent and used in the production of Freon-113, pesticides, medicines, veterinary drugs, smoking agents, defoaming agents, degassing agents for aluminum products, deoxidizers (aluminum, magnesium, copper and its alloys), cutting oil additives and polyvinyl chloride co-plasticizers, organic synthesis intermediates. Hexachloroethane can be used as a smoke generator when mixed with zinc powder, ammonium chloride, ammonium perchlorate, etc. in proportion. Hexachloroethane is also used as a camphor substitute and a rubber vulcanization accelerator. HCH itself is also a veterinary anthelmintic. Mainly used for ruminant liver leech disease and gastric leech disease, other orchidosis and nematode disease.

(3) Use 3: solvent, preservative.

(4) Use 4: It is used as a raw material for organic synthesis, as a degassing agent for aluminum and its alloys.

2. Emergency treatment of hexachloroethane leakage

Isolate the leaked contaminated area and restrict access. It is recommended that emergency personnel wear self-contained breathing apparatus and general work clothes. Small spills: Collect with a clean shovel in a dry, clean, covered container. Large spills: Collect, recycle or transport to a waste disposal site for disposal. Waste disposal method: by incineration. After the waste is mixed with other fuels, it should be incinerated, and the combustion should be sufficient to prevent the formation of phosgene. The hydrogen halide in the incinerator exhaust is removed by an acid scrubber.

3. Hexachloroethane protective measures

(1) Respiratory system protection: When you may come into contact with its dust, you should wear a self-priming filter dust mask. It is recommended to wear self-contained breathing apparatus during emergency rescue or evacuation.

(2) Eye protection: Generally, no special protection is required, and safety glasses can be worn when exposed to high concentrations.

(3) Body protection: gas-penetrating anti-virus clothing.

(4) Hand protection: Wear chemical-resistant gloves when working with hexachloroethane.

(5) Others: Smoking, eating and drinking are prohibited at the work site. After work, shower and change. Store poison-contaminated clothes separately and wash them for later use. Pay attention to personal hygiene.

4. Hexachloroethane first aid measures

(1) Skin contact: Take off the contaminated clothing and rinse the skin thoroughly with soap and water.

(2) Eye contact: Lift the eyelids and rinse with running water or normal saline. seek medical attention.

(3) Inhalation: chemical material supplier suggests that quickly leave the scene to fresh air. Keep the airway open. If breathing is difficult, give oxygen. If breathing stops, give artificial respiration immediately. seek medical attention.

(4) Ingestion: drink enough warm water, induce vomiting, and gastric lavage. seek medical attention.

(5) Hexachloroethane fire extinguishing method: firefighters must wear gas masks and full-body firefighting suits. Keep fire containers cool by spraying water until the fire is over.

(6) Fire extinguishing agent: mist water, foam, carbon dioxide, sand.
