ACGIH TLV: ASPHYXIANT; 9192

Hazards

Routes of Entry: Inhalation:YES Skin:YES Ingestion:YES
Reports of Carcinogenicity:NTP:NO IARC:NO OSHA:NO
Health Hazards Acute and Chronic:NITROGEN IS A SIMPLE ASPHYXIANT &
CONSTITUTES 78% OF THE AIR WE BREATHE.NITROGENDOES NOT SUPPORT LIFE
& MAY PRODUCE IMMEDIATELY HAZARDOUS ATMOSPHERES THROUGH THE
DISPLACEMENT OF OXYGEN.NITROGEN UNDE R HIGH PRESSURE CAN PRODUCE
NARCOSISEVEN THOUGH OXYGEN SUFFICIENT FOR LIFE IS PRESENT.
Effects of Overexposure:MAY PRODUCE DIZZINESS,NAUSEA,VOMITING,LOSS OF
CONSCIOUSNESS,& DEATH.DEATH MAY RESULT FROM ERRORS IN
JUDGMENT.CONFUSION,OR LOSS OF CONSCIOUSNESS.AT LOW OXYGEN
CONCENTRATIONS & DEATH MAY OCCUR IN SECOND S W/OUT
WARNING.EXTENSIVE TISSUE DAMAGEOR BURNS CAN RESULT FROM EXPOSURE TO
LIQ NIT OR COLD NITROGEN VAPORS.

First Aid

First Aid:PERSONS SUFFERING FROM LACK OF OXY SHOULD BE MOVED TO AREAS
W/NORMAL ATMOSPHERES.SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS MAY BE
REQUIRED TO PREVENT ASPHYXIANTION OF RESCUE WORKERS.ASSISTED
RESPIRATION & SU PPLEMENTAL OXY SHOULD BE GIVEN IF THE VICTIM IS
NOT BREATHING.IS CRYOGENIC LIQ OR COLD BOIL-OFF GAS CONTACTS A
WORKER'S SKIN OR EYES,FLOOD OR SOAK FROZEN TISSUES W/TEPID WTR.DO
NOT USE HOT WTR.

Fire Fighting

Flash Point:NA
Lower Limits:NA
Upper Limits:NA
Extinguishing Media:NA
Fire Fighting Procedures:NA
Unusual Fire/Explosion Hazard:NA

Accidental Release

Spill Release Procedures:AVOID CONTACT OF SKIN W/LIQ NITROGEN OR ITS
COLD BOIL-OFF GAS.FLUSH LIQ NIT SPILL W/WTR TO DISPERSEVENTILATE
ENCLOSED AREAS TO PREVENT FORMATION OF OXY-DEFICIENT ATMOSPHERES
CAUSED BY THE EVAPORATION OF LIQ NIT OR RELEASE OF GASEOUS
NITROGEN.

Handling

Handling and Storage Precautions:USE ONLY IN WELL VENTILATED AREA.DO
NOT DRAG,SLIDEOR ROLL CYLS.USE SUITABLE HAND TRUCK. KEEP CYLS AWAY
FROM HEAT.SEGREGATE FULL/EMPTY CYLINDERS.
Other Precautions:LIQ NIT IS A CRYOGENIC LIQ.MATERIALS OF CONSTRUCTION
MUST BE SELECTED FOR COMPATABILITY W/EXTREMELY LOW TEMPS.AVOID USE
OF CARBON STEEL & OTHER MATERIALS WHICH BECOME BRITTLE AT LOW
TEMPS.

Exposure Controls

Respiratory Protection:USE SELF-CONTAINED BREATHING APPARATUS IN
OXYGEN-DEFICIENT ATMOSPHERES.CAUTION! RESPIRATORS WILL NOT
FUNCTION.USE MAY RESULT IN ASPHYXIATION.
Ventilation:NATURAL/MECHANICAL WHERE GAS IS PRESENT.
Protective Gloves:LEATHER RECOMMENDED
Eye Protection:CHEMICAL GOGGLES/SAFETY GLASSES
Other Protective Equipment:NONE
