you need
  • - rubber gloves;

  • - rags.
Latin name Mercury Mercury (Merkurium), so the process of neutralization is called "demercurization."
demercurization should start with mechanical harvesting rasteksheysya substance.
on the exposed surface of the mercury rolled into balls, reminiscent of metal, which are very mobile.The first step is to collect them.For this purpose it is necessary to wear rubber gloves to avoid contact with skin, and using the syring
e to collect them.
very convenient to collect mercury using a copper plate or wire.To do this, you must clean the copper product and bring the stripped ends of the balls.They are instantly attracted to copper.
If you suspect that mercury
got behind the baseboard, it must necessarily be removed.
then be placed mercury balls on a plate and syringe into a tank filled with a thick solution of potassium permanganate, to avoid evaporation, sealed and put in a dark cool place (eg refrigerator).Isolated from environmental chemical element does not cause contamination of products.
Syringe with a solid tip
Now we need to treat the surface on which the mercury has flowed .To this dilute iodine (10 ml) in 10L (the bucket) of water and thoroughly wash the surface (floor, table, etc.).Then dissolve 30 mg of potassium permanganate (potassium permanganate) in 10 liters of water and immediately after washing the iodine wash the surface of the potassium permanganate.This manipulation is best done with gloves and various rags.Rags then should be discarded, and a bucket of rinse thoroughly as iodine and potassium permanganate.
Permanganta potassium (potassium permanganate)
room in which was spreading mercury must be aired for 12 hours to no more vapors.After 12 hours, we can assume that demercurization carried out and the room is possible to conduct normal activities.
Thoroughly ventilate the area
If mercury flowed in large numbers, you need to call the brigade MOE.After neutralization, the experts will hold a special measurement unit for the presence of vapors.By the way, the team can call and after self demercurization to verify the absence of mercury zagryazneniya.Izolirovannuyu and syringe, along with a broken thermometer or other device, you must hand over to the lab for disposal of radioactive waste, or to the department of emergency situations in the region.
