Lead: Mercury thermometers are often used by people, especially families with children. Thermometers are essential. If the thermometer is accidentally broken, mercury will flow out and it will be difficult to clean. Everyone knows that mercury is poisonous, but how much harm it will cause will have an impact on the human body. However, little is known about how the mercury will be treated.
The thermometer was broken, and the mercury was spilled. Don't panic when you do this. The best treatment is to sprinkle some sulfur powder on the mercury so that the mercury will react chemically and combine with the sulfur in the sulfur powder to form a black agglomerate of mercury sulfide while maintaining the windows for long periods of ventilation. This harm to the human body is not great. Sulfur powder is available in some chemical reagent stores and sulphur can also be purchased at pharmacies. However, it should be noted that the storage of sulfur powder should not be placed next to the source of fire, and should not be stored together with flammable materials to prevent fire.
For the outflow of mercury, the mercury that has fallen on the ground can be sucked up with a wet cotton stick or tape, put into a small bottle that can be sealed, and a small amount of water can be added to the bottle to prevent the mercury from evaporating. The movement during the collection process is fast, and the windows must be opened for good ventilation. Wear gloves as much as possible without contact with mercury.
Usually if the treatment is timely, clean, and the home is well ventilated, it will not cause mercury poisoning. In addition, when purchasing a thermometer, Xiaobian suggested that we should choose to use an electronic thermometer. This can also be more safe, accurate, and convenient.
