Sulphur - Unloading processElemental sulfur is stable by itself at ambient temperatures.



Conditions to avoid: mixtures of air and sulfur dust, sparks or open flames, mixtures of sulfur and oxidizing agents in general, large accumulations of sulfur dust which could become airborne in an explosion or process disruption caused by other materials. Examples of common oxidizing agents are PERCHLORATES, NITRATES, CHLORATES, PERMANGANATES, PEROXIDES, OXYGEN, HALOGENS, etc. Good housekeeping is important to minimize fire danger.
General Information: Solid sulfur is satisfactorily compatible with common materials of construction including steel and aluminum. Molten sulfur may attack and degrade rubber and some plastics. At still higher temperatures sulfur will react with hydrocarbons evolving poisonous hydrogen sulfide gas in the absence of air. The gas is also flammable. Sulfur is both an OXIDIZING AGENT and a REDUCING AGENT. Sulfur will form sulfides with most metals, including iron, and reacts vigorously with metals in the Sodium and Magnesium groups on the periodic table. Sulfides of iron will oxidize fairly rapidly in moist air. In the presence of other readily oxidized combustibles (such as some oily materials) under certain conditions, the heat liberated may be sufficient to result in spontaneous ignition. This phenomenon has not been observed with these pure Sulfur products or Disintegrating Sulfur in contact with unprotected steel at ordinary ambient temperatures, however. Users are cautioned against allowing inadvertent mixtures of sulfur, iron, and miscellaneous oils to remain. Oxidation is accelerated by higher temperatures. Heat buildup and ignition can be prevented by keeping the sulfides wet until oxidation is complete.`
The literature on sulfur is extensive. Consult a chemist before compounding.
Hazardous combustion products: Sulfur dioxide gas. Poisonous, irritating, choking gas. Smells like burning match heads (which also liberate Sulfur dioxide). Do not inhale, If exposed get to fresh air at once. Treat as for smoke inhalation.
