What do I need to be aware of when storing lithium carbonate?



Lithium carbonate is an important inorganic salt, widely used in batteries, ceramics, glass, chemicals and other fields. In the storage process, pay attention to the following points:

1. Storage environment: lithium carbonate should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated place without direct sunlight. Avoid contact with humid, acidic or alkaline substances to prevent product deterioration or damage.

2. Storage containers: Use dry, clean, well-sealed containers to store lithium carbonate. Make sure the container is undamaged and has a good seal to prevent moisture and impurities from entering.

3. Moisture-proof measures: As lithium carbonate is easy to absorb moisture, special attention should be paid to moisture-proof when storing. An appropriate amount of desiccant, such as silica gel or anhydrous calcium chloride, can be placed inside the container to absorb possible moisture.

4. Fire prevention measures: Lithium carbonate is not combustible, but it will release a lot of heat when it meets water, which may lead to fire. Therefore, it should be kept away from sources of ignition during storage and ensure that there are no combustible substances around.

5. Avoid exposure: Lithium carbonate should be avoided to be exposed to air for a long time, because the moisture and carbon dioxide in the air may react with lithium carbonate and cause the product to deteriorate. Therefore, the container should be closed quickly when the product is taken.

6. Regular inspection: Regularly check whether the stored lithium carbonate has caking, discoloration, peculiar smell and other phenomena. If there is any abnormality, timely measures should be taken to deal with it in order to prevent the product from deteriorating or being damaged.

7. Labeling and record keeping: Labeling and record keeping should be done during the storage process, including the name of the product, quantity, production date, expiration date and other information. This helps to ensure product traceability and quality control.
