WARNING

Steam activated carbon (especially when wet) can deplete oxygen from the air and therefore dangerously low levels of oxygen may be encountered. Whenever workers enter vessel or confined space containing activated carbon, the vessels oxygen levels should be monitored and work precautions for potentially low oxygen areas should be followed.

This product type passes the tests for self-heating substances as reflected in the UN Manual of Tests and Criteria (see 33.3.1.3.3), and is accompanied by a certificate from a laboratory accredited by the competent authority, stating that the product to be loaded has been correctly sampled by trained staff from that laboratory and that the sample was correctly tested and has passed the test.

Section 5 – FIRE FIGHTING MEASURES: 

Suitable Extinguishing Media

Water spray, dry chemical powder, carbon dioxide, or appropriate foam.

Unsuitable Extinguishing Media

None Known.

Protective Equipment and   Procedures

In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH approved self-contained breathing apparatus suitable for surrounding fire.

 

Section 6 – Accidental Release Measures: 

General Information

Use proper personal protective equipment.

Spills or Leaks

Clean up spills in a manner that does not disperse dust into the air, avoid generating dusty conditions. Sweep up, and then place into a suitable container for disposal.

Disposal Method

 

Spent granular activated carbon may be recyclable. Dispose of virgin(unused) carbon (waste or spilled) in a facility permitted for non hazardous waste. Spent(used) carbon should be disposed in.

 

Section 7 – Handling and Storage: 

Handling

Keep bags closed until ready for use. Avoid breathing dust. Use with adequate ventilation. Avoid contact with eye, skin and clothing. Avoid ingestion and inhalation.

Storage

Store in a tightly closed container. Store in a cool, dry, well-ventilated area away from incompatible substances.

 

Section 8 –EXPOSURE CONTROLS/ PERSONAL PROTECTION
