Research environments using several different types of chemicals have special storage requirements. Whether using acids, bases or solvents, it is critical that incompatible liquids are segregated to avoid disastrous explosions or fire. (See eye candy video below about incompatible water that goes boom)
Additionally, it is important to know chemical compatibility as it relates to the construction materials for the cabinet itself. The Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) should be reviewed to determine chemical characteristics and recommended storage practices.
With the most extensive selection of cabinet types and sizes specifically designed to address corrosive storage concerns, Justrite Chemical cabinets has just what the job requires.
In Australia, BIG Safety supplies two main types of Justrite Corrosive Chemical Cabinets:-
Steel Chemicals Cabinets with Polyethylene Shelf liners - Steel cabinets are ideal for flammable corrosives as they have all of the features of Justrite's market leading safety cabinets, with the added benefit of polyethylene shelf trays and a unique powder coat paint for chemical resistance.
Polyethylene Corrosive Cabinets - The all polyethylene construction provides solid protection against leaks. Chemically inert, linear low density polyethylene offer maximum resistance against corrosion and rust.
Justrite Polyethylene Corrosive cabinet for chemicals such as Phenol, Nitric Acid, Sulphuric Acid or other substances with highly corrosive vapours.
