Burlington YMCA evacuated after chemical spill

The worker found the pool of chemicals in a pump maintenance able to contain the acid, Collette confirmed. "“The Y will be contracting someone to clean up the chemical," Bishop said. Concentrated fumes or skin contact with hydrochloric acid pose

No cure found in the ‘purple pill’

Hydrochloric making stomach acid. Specifically, they inhibit the acid production of cells lining stomach by blocking a chemical system called the hydrogen potassium adenosine triphosphatase enzyme (otherwise known as the proton pump) system.


Workers using a rubber-lined vacuum truck were still trying to pump at the chemical plant yesterday, causing a break that released 10,000 pounds of the toxic chemical. In contact with moisture, silicon tetrachloride produces hydrochloric acid.

The vagina has an environment ‘like acid rain,’ and thank God for that

Carver calls our tears a form of “chemical proton pumps “which are like tiny merry-go-rounds for ions.” A key ingredient — hydrogen ions — are deposited into the stomach and then combined with chloride ions to make hydrochloric acid

Non-Metallic Process Pump handles harsh chemicals.

Model NM 3196 pump operates up to 20 percent more efficiently than competing metal pumps in harsh chemical processes been recognized as a cost-effective option for pumping hydrochloric acid, sulfuric acid, seawater, ferric chloride and other harsh

Drug warriors and food paranoiacs: Partners in scientific illiteracy

Hydrochloric acid might be used in one step requiring an acidic environment, only to be neutralized and removed in the next step. Ether might be used as a solvent, only to be removed with a vacuum pump from the finished product. These things are used in

Fire crews and a Hazmat The leak came from a hydrochloric acid pump that helps balance the pH levels in the kids swimming pool at the center. 80 gallons were spilled from a 100-gallon barrel of acid, but the dangerous chemical was all contained in

Microreactor could speed fuel's output

The device - about the size of a credit card - pumps vegetable oil and alcohol but it still contains the chemical catalyst, which must be neutralized and removed using hydrochloric acid, a long and costly process. The microreactor under development

Consumer Reports: How to pick safer cleaning supplies

Better bet: Opt for pump sprays. “Pump sprays don’t contain environmentally problematic propellants, are easy to use, and the chemical droplets are larger What to be aware of: Some cleaners contain hydrochloric acid (listed as hydrogen chloride
