5. Fire Fighting Measures

Flammability of the Product: The product is not flammable but it is an oxidizer.
Flash Points: NA.
Products of Combustion: It emits toxic oxides of carbon and oxides of nitrogen when heated to decomposition.
Fire: Sodium nitrate is an oxidizer.
Explosion: Slightly explosive in presence of heat.
Fire Extinguishing Media
: Water spray. Use means suitable for extinguishing surrounding fire. Water spray, dry chemical, alcohol foam, or carbon dioxide.
Special Information
 In the event of a fire, wear full protective clothing and NIOSH-approved self-contained breathing apparatus with full face piece operated in the pressure demand or other positive pressure mode. At high temperatures or when moistened under fire conditions, it may produce toxic or irritating fumes.
It may accelerate burning when involved in a fire. Increases the flammability of any combustible material. May ignite Combustibles (wood, paper, clothing, etc.). Flames up when heated to 540 deg. C. Mixture with charcoal ignites on heating. Contact with combustible or organic materials may cause fire.
It will react explosively with hydrocarbons. Interaction of nitrates when heated with amidosulfates (sulfamates) may become explosively violent owing to liberation of dinitrogen oxide and steam. Mixtures of sodium nitrate with powdered aluminum or its oxide were reported to be explosive. Mixtures of sodium nitrate and barium thiocyanate may explode. Mixture with sodium nitrate and powdered antimony explode. Mixture of sodium nitrate and sodium thiosulfate or sodium phosphinate explode.

6. Accidental Release Measures

Small Spill: Avoid dust formation. Avoid breathing dust. Ensure adequate ventilation. Use appropriate tools to put the spilled solid in a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and dispose of according to local and regional authority requirements.
Large Spill: Do not let the product enter drains. Use a shovel to put the material into a convenient waste disposal container. Finish cleaning by spreading water on the contaminated surface and allow evacuating through the sanitary system.

7. Handling and Storage

Do not breathe dust. Wear suitable protective clothing. In case of insufficient ventilation, wear suitable respiratory equipment.
Avoid contact with skin and eyes. Avoid formation of dust and aerosols. Wash hands thoroughly after handling. Provide appropriate exhaust ventilation at places where dust is formed. If you feel unwell, seek medical attention.
Keep Sodium nitrate in a tightly closed container, stored in a cool, dry, ventilated area. Protect against physical damage or contact with oxidizing material and combustible substances.

8. Exposure Controls/Personal Protection

Airborne Exposure Limits: None established.
Ventilation System: A system of local and/or general exhaust is recommended to keep employee exposures as low as possible. Local exhaust ventilation is generally preferred because it can control the emissions of the contaminant at its source, preventing dispersion of it into the general work area.
Personal Respirators (NIOSH Approved): For conditions of use where exposure to dust or mist is apparent and engineering controls are not feasible, a particulate respirator may be worn. For emergencies or instances where the exposure levels are not known, use a full-face positive-pressure, air-supplied respirator.
Skin Protection: Wear protective gloves and clean body-covering clothing.
Eye Protection: Use chemical safety goggles and/or full face shield where dusting or splashing of solutions is possible. Maintain eye wash fountain and quick-drench facilities in work area.
Other Control Measures: Maintain good housekeeping in work area. Dust deposits on floors and other surfaces may pick up moisture and cause the surfaces to become slippery and present safety hazards. Handle in accordance with good industrial hygiene and safety practice. Wash hands after handling.
