Chemical Safety: Molten Salt Baths Cited as Lab Hazards.
Baum, Rudy
Chemical and Engineering News, v60 n41 p29 Oct 11 1982
Discusses danger of explosions with molten salts baths, commonly used as heat-transfer media. One such explosion involved use of a bath containing 3-lb sodium nitrite and 1-lb potassium thiocyanate. Although most commercially available mixtures for heat transfer contain oxidizers, a reducer (thiocyanate) was included which possibly triggered the explosion. (Author/JN)
