Hazard Assessment for Manufacture of Combustible Cartridge Cases using Picrite
Keywords: Nitrocellulose coating, Combustible cartridge case
AbstractA systematic study of the effect of impact, friction, flame and electric spark sensitivity was carried out on the samples combustible cartridge case (CCC) withdrawn at different stages of manufacture. These are Stage I dried felted CCC; stage II-CCC from stage III Coated with nitrocellulose coating. based on the results obtained from various experiments, the CCC can be classified for handling storage and transportation as Group 3, for safety distance category as UN 1.3 and for fire fighting as class 2. further it is concluded from hazard analysis study that the CCCs are safe to handle but these should be protected from naked flame.
