Rapid response chemical safety kit

Thursday, 12 November, 2009 | Supplied by: Enware Australia Pty Ltd



The FAST-ACT (First Applied Sorbent Treatment - Against Chemical Threats) rapid response safety kit offers one-step neutralisation of either liquid or vapour spills of highly toxic chemicals including hydrofluoric (HF) acid.

The product helps neutralise toxic chemical incidents rapidly (liquid or vapour), facilitating rescues where needed and reducing the need for total evacuations.

HF acid is an extremely corrosive liquid and dangerous contact-poison. Accidental exposures can go unnoticed, because it interferes with nerve function, delaying treatment and increasing the extent and seriousness of the injury.

The products are relevant to oil refining, where HF acid is used as a catalyst in the standard oil refinery process known as alkylation; in the petroleum industry mixed with other acids to stimulate production of water, oil and gas wells; production of organo-fluorine compounds, including those used in the production of Teflon, fluoro-polymers, fluorocarbons and refrigerants; and etchants and cleaning agents in metal processing.

Wall-mounted units can be tailored to user requirements, employing 70, 300 and 500 g, 3 and 5 kg shaker-tubs, and 1, 2 and 4 kg fire-extinguisher-style pressurised cylinders for liquids, vapour and off-gassing.
