Acid storage cabinets are required in all environments where hazardous chemicals are handled and are most typically used to store small amounts of chemical substances in a laboratory or workplace for regular use.
Storing hazardous chemicals in the right way is imperative for the safety of laboratory technicians and other personnel in the workplace.
When hazardous substances are stored incorrectly, there is an immediate health and safety risk related to potential leakage of toxic fumes which, when combined with other factors such as heat or fire, can lead to explosion.
In addition, there are other health risks that come with the improper storage of harmful chemicals including inhalation of harmful gases which can cause serious, long-term health issues.
Here are some critical points regarding the safe storage of hazardous chemicals:
Specific classes of chemicals require special types of storage. For example, acid storage cabinets are made from materials that are resistant to corrosion and have special seals to prevent the leakage of fumes from the cabinet.
Spillage trays are a common requirement for acid storage cabinets and must be checked regularly for corrosion or degradation.
These cabinets are specially designed for the safe storage of corrosive or oxidizing liquids and are generally fitted with a vent that attaches to the lab exhaust system or fume hood.
We manufacture acid storage cabinets that are made from acid resistant reinforced plastic and fiberglass, ensuring safe storage and containment of acidic chemicals.
Our units are portable and easy to connect to the fume extraction cabinet if necessary. In addition, our acid storage cabinets are made with no joints or gaps in construction, making them highly effective in storing harmful chemicals in the safest way.
