Title: Test Methods for Sodalime Carbon Dioxide Absorbents
Author: Long, ET
Abstract: The following are general safety precautions that are not related to any specific procedures; therefore, they do not appear elsewhere in this document. These are recommended precautions that personnel must understand and use during various phases of testing and evaluation. STANDARD SAFETY PRECAUTIONS: Safety precautions for unmanned testing are normal precautions associated with testing at pressures of 5000 psig or less. To minimize safety risks, operating personnel shall adhere to the test procedures as presented in this manual when they conduct UBA testing. Failure to perform the procedures as prescribed may cause injury to personnel or damage to equipment. Operating personnel must observe all applicable safety regulations in compliance with the Navy Occupational Safety and Health (NAVOSH) Program Manual, OPNAVlNST 5100.23E with change 1. Carbon dioxide (CO2) absorbents currently used in manned hyperbaric chambers and underwater breathing apparatus (UBA) authorized for use in the U.S. Navy primarily consist of calcium hydroxide (Ca(OH)2) HYDRATED LIME and sodium hydroxide (NaOH) sodium hydrate, which can cause irritation or burns to the eyes and/or skin. Before conducting the procedures outlined in this technical manual, the operator should review the Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) for the product under investigation.
