Unloading molten Sulphur

Auto-ignition point (air): 478-511 degrees F.


Flash Point: 335+F.` Mixtures of dust suspended in air may be easily ignited at all ambient temperatures by sparks or static electricity if the oxygen content is above 8%. Dust explosions may result, similar to flour or sawdust explosions. AVOID CREATING AIR-DUST MIXTURES. Flammable Limits: LEL Dust 35 g/m3; UEL Dust 1400 g/m3>>. NOTE: May vary considerably depending on particle size and dispersion.
Extinguishing media: Water, water fog, dirt, sand, or carbon dioxide blanket. Seal Closable Tanks to smother fire. Hi-velocity jets of water or gas should be avoided as these will tend to spread and splash burning material over a larger area. Gentle water sprays or flooding are best. Damage to product can be minimized by smothering (closing off air) or with carbon dioxide flooding.
Special fire-fighting procedures: Protect product and containers from ignition during nearby fires if possible. As a precaution, keep exterior of tanks, bins cool with water spray to help prevent ignition and to help control sulfur fire if ignition occurs. If sulfur ignites: Stay upwind to avoid irritating-toxic sulfur dioxide gas. Protect skin from molten sulfur burns. Indoors, especially, wear self-contained breathing apparatus of the positive pressure type. Protect eyes. Combustion products (sulfur dioxide) will cause severe coughing/eye & throat pain/and distress. DO NOT INHALE! Avoid raising dust. After fire is controlled, post fire watch for at least 4 hours. Small fires are easy to miss and can linger for hours. Re-ignition may occur.
Unusual fire and explosion hazards: Combustion product is sulfur dioxide, an irritating toxic gas which smells like burning match heads. Dust air mixtures are highly flammable/explosive. Sulfur fires are deep blue at night, with very short flames. Fire is invisible by daylight except for smoke and heat. Burning material, however, turns deep red-black.
