RIYADH: Saudi Aramco's Haradh Gas Plant has pioneered the use of Concrete Canvas (CC) in the construction of a pyrophoric
treatment area, the works for which were carried out by Saudi-based Freih Bin Owaidha Al Qahtani Sons Co Ltd (FOQSCO).
A chemical that is pyrophoric
(UN GHS Hazard H250) is also a flammable liquid (UN GHS Hazard H228).
These materials are pyrophoric
, ie these react very violently with the oxygen in the air, so that fire phenomena occur.
Open flames and pyrophoric
chemicals expose laboratory workers to high risk potentials, and the handling of toxic, corrosive or flammable liquids is routine.
materials are substances which have an auto ignition temperature which is below room temperature.
substances such as iron sulfide auto-ignite in the presence of oxygen in an extremely exothermic reaction.
Some include enhancements such as additional fragmentation or pyrophoric
, chemical, biological, and radiological materials, which increase the bomb's lethality or its explosive, incendiary, or psychological effect.
First, learning of the pyrophoric
nature of the waste materials and the fears of hydrogen release.
citrella sex pheromone, (Z,Z,E)-7,11,13-hexadecatrienal, involves a pyrophoric
reagent (Leal et al.
New additions under COMAH and CLP include pyrophoric
liquids and solids and flammable aerosols.
Fire Investigator Mark Whitaker said: "It's called pyrophoric
action and is a rare thing, but it's not impossible.
It was determined that R-40 was very chemically reactive with aluminum inside the refrigeration system and produced a violent reaction forming toxic and reactive compounds, some of which could be pyrophoric
(spontaneously combust in the presence of air).
