Beryllium sulfate is a kind of white powder or cubic crystalline crystals, soluble in water, insoluble in organic solvents, highly toxic, and highly carcinogenic substance. It can cause dermatitis, ulcer and skin granuloma after absorption by human body. Industrial applications include beryllium salts, ceramics and chemical reagents. When using, attention should be paid to avoid pollution of water body.
Beryllium sulfate tetrahydrate is not only harmful to health, but also can cause chemical bronchitis and pneumonia when inhaled. Contact dermatitis, beryllium ulcer and skin granuloma may occur when beryllium sulfate tetrahydrate is exposed to skin. Beryllium and its compounds are carcinogens. Beryllium sulfate tetrahydrate is also harmful to the environment and can cause pollution to water. It is also a dangerous explosive, beryllium sulfate tetrahydrate itself can not burn. When decomposed at high temperature, it releases high toxic fumes, which are carcinogens.
The operation of beryllium sulfate tetrahydrate should be sealed to provide adequate local ventilation. Prevent dust from releasing into the air of the workshop. Operators must be specially trained and strictly abide by the operating rules. Operators are advised to wear dust mask (full cover), rubber clothing and rubber gloves. Avoid producing dust. Avoid contact with oxidants. Equipped with leak emergency treatment equipment. Empty containers may retain harmful substances.
When beryllium sulfate tetrahydrate leaks, it is necessary to isolate the leaking contaminated area and restrict access. It is suggested that emergency personnel wear dust-proof masks and anti-virus clothes. Do not contact leaks directly. Collect, recycle or transport to waste disposal sites for disposal.
