We get all shocked and stressed when chemicals get spilled in a TV show or a movie, so can you imagine how awful it would be to witness it? Especially if it occurs in an industrial working environment where the danger is increased significantly. An industrial environment has the potential of things going wrong with these hazardous liquids and failing to prevent it, may result with great costs and losses. Not only will there be damage to the working environment, but the business will have to remain shut for the day and that is the most inconvenient thing that can happen to a company.
This is why every company that includes working with chemicals must own a corrosives cabinet (or more if necessary) for protection. These corrosive substance storage cabinets are the ideal place for storing chemicals because even if one of the bottles leaks accidentally, the liquid will be safely stored in the cabinet and no harm will occur neither to a worker nor to the working space. When a leak happens withing an acid storage cabinet, it is also quite easier to clean, rather than having to soak every hidden drop from the floor.
A corrosive cabinet has the capacity to store up to 20-liters non-flammable and flammable corrosive liquids and acids. Flammable liquids that can be contained in such cabinets are the following: Solvents, Paints, Petrol, Kerosene, Turpentine, Thinners, White Spirits, Ethanol and Alcohol. From the combustible liquids: Linseed Oil, Pine Oil and Diesel. The great thing about these cabinets is the fact that their inside and outside surface is polished with blue epoxy powder coating that is very resistant to chemicals. Additional protection can be applied too by supplying each and every cabinet with polyethylene trays with high density. They will be placed on the shelves and on the bottom on the cabinet.
An additional role that corrosive substance storage cabinets play in every workplace that deals with hazardous chemicals, is the protection from theft. It is also very important to get the right kind of information about which kinds of chemicals don’t go together. Some of them may interact in an unpleasant and dangerous way. These chemicals should be kept apart at all times to avoid minor or major explosions.
Getting a corrosives cabinet is just a small investment that truly pays off with all the protection given to the workers and the surrounding area. If your business includes working with chemicals,don’t hesitate to get one of these cabinets and increase the safety.
