Safety Cabinets for Storage of Corrosive Chemicals (Acids and Bases)
From Corrosive Cabinets
For safety reasons, acids and bases must be stored in safety cabinets in order to prevent any risk of leaks or breakages of bottles. You must also pay attention that different product families must be separated in compartments or stored into different cabinets. Some of our cabinets are divided in compartments, allowing storage of different product families. This catalogue presents our range of safety cabinets for several corrosives solutions of storage. Whatever your field of activity may be (laboratory, industry, warehouse, production unit,…), if you store corrosives (little to extremely corrosives), you must store them in safety cabinets. Do not hesitate to contact us for a personal and quick advice.
What is a Safety Cabinet for Corrosives?
Two bread types of storage can be proposed concerning corrosives:
The first type, dedicated to slightly corrosive products, are steel safety cabinets with high resistance paint. These cabinets offer additional protection in high density polyethylene or PVC for the shelves and the bottom retention tank.
The second type, dedicated to high corrosive products (such as nitric, sulfuric, hydrochloric or fluohydric acids) are cabinets made in high density polyethylene or cellular PVC. These materials offer the perfect resistance to corrosives vapours.
Is Forced Ventilation Needed?
A forced ventilation is a prerequisite in order to improve the life cycle and the safety of a steel cabinet. Indeed, despite the fact that the steel is protected by a resistant epoxy paint, nothing can protect against the possibility of corrosion inside a steel safety cabinet. Moreover, to protect the users health, it is highly recommended to install an exhausting system, whatever the material used for the cabinet, in order to eliminate any concentration of dangerous vapours inside the cabinet. We invite you to have a look at the different vent solutions proposed (fan, exhausting system, filtration by active coal, etc…) at the end of this catalogue to find the right one adapted to your needs.
