MGO is the oxide of magnesium, an ionic compound. It is a white solid powder at room temperature. Magnesium oxide is commonly known as bitter soil or magnesia. It is odorless and tasteless. When exposed to the air, it easily absorbs water and carbon dioxide and gradually becomes basic magnesium carbonate. Light products are faster than heavy products, and combine with water to form magnesium hydroxide under certain conditions, showing a slightly alkaline reaction.
Magnesium oxide has many uses, and it is also a common insulator in making heating elements. In order to ensure the integrity of magnesium oxide, what should be paid attention to during transportation?
First of all, during the transportation of magnesium oxide, ensure that the container does not leak, collapse, fall, or cause any damage to prevent the magnesium oxide from leaking and dispersing. Secondly, do not drop the mixed shipment of magnesium oxide and oxidant during transportation. Magnesium oxide must not be exposed to the sun or damp. Pay attention to high temperature during transportation, and pay attention to the transportation of magnesium oxide. The magnesium oxide must be packaged completely before transportation, and the loading must be secure. The magnesia workshop needs to be operated in a closed manner with local exhaust. The operators must be trained and strictly abide by the operating procedures. It is recommended that operators wear self-priming filter dust masks and chemical protective glasses to avoid dust generation and contact with oxidants.
