Range of application
Calcium carbide special intends for receiving acetylene, for production of reagent of the carbide powder, karbidnokarbamidny regulator of growth of plants, desulphurizer, carbide lime. Calcium carbide special — the substance which has passed industrial processing with use of unconditioned raw materials and waste (crystalline limestones, high-ash slate and blast furnace coke and others) and used as intermediate product in technology processes.
At interaction with water calcium carbide decays with release of acetylene and slaked lime, at contact with oxidizers also emits acetylene and is warmed. Fire acetylene — is also explosive. Calcium carbide on extent of impact on organism belongs to substances of the 1st class of danger. Calcium carbide is packed into steelpans of all types of tight execution by capacity - 100 dm3 or into special airtight containers. Calcium carbide is stored on the open areas under canopy or in the fireproof, well aired warehouses excluding moisture hit in vertical position, no more than in three tiers. Joint storage with other substances and materials is not allowed.
