I believe you have a lot of knowledge about potassium hydroxide, because of its characteristics, so we must pay special attention when contacting, but do you know what to pay attention to in packaging? Next, I'll give you a specific explanation.
1. Transportation matters needing attention: Open truck transportation with steel drum packing is available for railway transportation. The packing should be complete and the loading should be safe at the time of shipment. During transportation, it is necessary to ensure that the container does not leak, collapse, fall or damage. It is strictly forbidden to mix with flammable or combustible substances, acids, edible chemicals, etc. Transportation vehicles should be equipped with emergency leak handling equipment.
2. Packaging methods: solids can be packed in steel barrels 0.5 mm thick and sealed tightly, with net weight not exceeding 100 kg per barrel; steel barrels with full or medium openings outside plastic bags or two-layer kraft paper bags; ordinary wooden boxes outside threaded glass bottles, iron-capped glass bottles, plastic bottles or metal barrels (cans); glass bottles with threaded openings, plastic bottles or tin-plated thin steel barrels (cans) are covered with baseplate lattices and fiberboard boxes. Box or plywood box; tinned steel barrel (tank), metal barrel (tank), plastic bottle or metal hose corrugated carton outside.
3. Potassium hydroxide storage precautions: store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated warehouse. Keep away from fire and heat sources. The humidity in the reservoir should not exceed 85%. Packing should be sealed and not damp. Should be stored separately with easy (cocoa) fuel, acid, etc. Do not mix storage. The storage area should be equipped with suitable materials to accommodate leaks.
Above is a summary for you about potassium hydroxide in packaging matters needing attention, I believe that everyone has learned. In addition, it is easy to absorb moisture in the air and deliquescence, and absorb carbon dioxide to form potassium carbonate. When dissolved in water, alcohol or treated with acid, it produces a lot of heat. Therefore, in order not to affect the use of results, we must follow the packaging method.
