Slovakia calcium carbide packing of 2,3,9 kg
STATE STANDARD SPECIFICATION 1460-81 CALCIUM CARBIDE
Calcium carbide is received in electric furnaces at temperature of 1900-1950 °C from lime and anthracite or coke. Technical calcium carbide represents solid crystal matter from light-brown till black color.
Chemical formula: Sas2
At interaction with water calcium carbide decays with release of acetylene and slaked lime, at contact with oxidizers also emits acetylene and is warmed. Acetylene pozharo-is also explosive. Calcium carbide on extent of impact on organism belongs to substances of the 1st class of danger.
Calcium carbide is packed into steelpans or special airtight containers.
Calcium carbide is transported all means of transport (except air) in the covered vehicles. Calcium carbide transportation by the motor transport with open bodies is allowed, at the same time reels and containers have to be closed by tarpaulin. Calcium carbide is stored on the open areas under canopy or in the fireproof, well aired warehouses excluding moisture hit in vertical position, no more than in three tiers. Joint storage with other substances and materials is not allowed.
