In the case of normal production, type inspection shall be carried out at least once a month. Type inspection shall also be carried out in one of the following cases:
a) In case of update of key production processes;
b) In case of change of the main raw materials;
c) In case of production restoration after suspension;
of the manufacturer. The manufacturer shall ensure that each batch of exit- factory products meets the requirements of this standard and is accompanied by a quality certificate in a certain format, which includes:
a) Product name;
b) Product model and grade;
c) Name and address of manufacturer;
d) Production date or batch number;
e) No. of this standard;
f) Industrial product production license marking and number.
Ethanol for industrial use shall be stored in a clean, dry steel tanker or other container that can guarantee quality.
Ethanol for industrial use shall be stored in a cool, dry, ventilated environment which is isolated from heat sources and fires.
Ethanol for industrial use is a flammable and dangerous product. It must not be exposed to sunlight during transportation; it shall not be stacked with flammable materials and oxides. It shall strictly follow the relevant provisions for the transportation of hazardous chemicals.
8.1 Warning of danger
Ethanol for industrial use is an irritating, flammable liquid. The melting point is - 114.3 °C; the boiling point is 78.4 °C; the flash point is 12 °C; the ignition temperature is 363 °C. Its vapor and air may form explosive mixture; the explosion limit is 3.3% (volume fraction) ~ 19.0% (volume fraction). When exposed to open flame and high heat, it may cause combustion and explosion. Contact with an oxidant may induce a chemical reaction or cause combustion. In a fire, heated containers are at risk of explosion. Its vapor is heavier than air, which can spread to a relatively far place at a lower place. It will reignite when exposed to open flames. Ethanol for industrial use is a central nervous system inhibitor. Acute poisoning mostly occurs orally. Prolonged skin contact can
