Precautions of chemical protective clothing in petrochemical industry

With the continuous development of the chemical industry, chemical solutions are closely related to us. Chemical protective clothing is the most common kind of body protective equipment. What should we pay attention to in the use of chemical protective clothing in the petrochemical industry

the following points for attention in the use of chemical protective clothing are explained from four aspects: time limit, storage mode, shelf life and daily training

1. time limit for use of chemical protective clothing. Taking a certain type of chemical protective clothing made in China as an example, it can ensure that the protective performance of the air respirator is unchanged before the air storage is used up. When the anti penetration time has reached, the site must be evacuated; Before entering the site again, it should be decontaminated until it returns to the normal protection level< As a special rubber product, the storage of chemical protective clothing has special requirements. The stretching or compression of rubber surface will lead to the decline of protective performance, or even the loss of protective effect. 1n addition to keeping it dry and ventilated, its placing method is very important. 1f conditions permit, it should be hung upside down with special pylon in the warehouse. When it is stored on the vehicle and the storage conditions are limited, it should be placed flat and spread out as far as possible(Third, the shelf life of chemical protective clothing any protective product has its specific period of validity. Chemical protective clothing belongs to rubber products, and its natural aging is much faster than other products. For example, the normal storage period of domestic fully enclosed chemical protective clothing is 5 years even if it is not used. As a matter of fact, the storage life of any chemical protective clothing without vacuum packaging is not more than 10 years. Because of the long time, the material aging of chemical protective clothing will reduce its protection level. 1f it is necessary to extend the service life of chemical protective clothing, it must be tested by the manufacturer or special technical department before the service life can be extended within a certain period of time< 4. Use of chemical protective clothing in training many operators are afraid that they will not use chemical protective clothing in actual combat and frequently wear chemical protective clothing in training, exercise and performance. 1n fact, the performance of any protective product decreases with the increase of the number of times of use. Excessive use of chemical protective clothing in peacetime will not only seriously reduce the service life of chemical protective clothing, but also reduce the level of protection, so that it can not play its due role in actual combat in normal training and exercises, it is necessary to promote the use of special training clothing with the same shape, size and weight as the standard chemical protective clothing. 1f there are no conditions for the time being, we should strictly distinguish between actual combat clothing and training clothing, try to reduce the use of chemical protective clothing, and ensure that “good steel” is used on the blade finally, 1 would like to remind you that the use environment of different types of chemical protective clothing is very different. You must check the manual or consult the supplier before use. The protective ability and use of chemical protective clothing should be in accordance with national standards and specific industrial standards this article is a reprint of 1nternet media, which only represents the author’s point of view and has nothing to do with this website. 1f the information column articles and comments violate your legal rights, please call to let us know and we will deal with them in time
