Notes on storage
- The storage area must be carefully cleaned before equipping with calcium cyanamide and PERLKA®, and this is especially the case with loose goods
- Calcium cyanamide must be stored dry and protected from damp
- Do not store it together with highly flammable and combustible materials and substances
- Store it separately away from fertilizers containing nitrates, and away from substances that are acid and alkaline reactive
- Calcium cyanamide (ground) may only be stored together with ammonium- and ammonium nitrate-containing fertilizers when it is adequately separated from them. Adequately separated means:
- A minimum distance of 5 m when stored loose outdoors
- A minimum distance of 2.50 m when stored loose in a storage room
- A minimum distance of 1 m for packaged products in a storage room
(non-reactive substances can be stored in between)
- With loose calcium cyanamide and PERLKA® there are no material-related storage problems since the product does not corrode wood, concrete, plastics or steel.
- When storing in flat stores the usual principles for loose storage of mineral fertilizers should be observed (cover with PE film)
- Storage in tower silos is straightforward; as long as damp is prevented from getting in there should be no bridging and caking
- Transport and interim storage in sloped-bottom containers is also straightforward.
