3701-06 Chemicals, N.O.C.: Manufacturing chemical mixing, blending, and repackaging nitrate recovery from X-ray and photo films
Applies to:
Businesses engaged in manufacturing:
• Acetylene gas;

• Potash;
• Salt.
Businesses engaged in:
• Recovering nitrate or silver from X-ray and photo films.
• Mixing, blending or repackaging chemicals, but not manufacturing the ingredients.
Products manufactured and processes used include, but are not limited to:
• Acetylene gas - Highly flammable but nontoxic gas that is manufactured by reacting calcium carbide with water in a pressure generator, which combines carbon and lime to form the product.
• Ammonia - Colorless gas used as a component in fertilizer, medicines and cleaning compounds manufacturing. Involves combining hydrogen and nitrogen gases with a catalyst, which causes a reaction between the two gases when heated in a generator.
• Ammonia nitrate - Crystalline compound used mainly in fertilizers, explosives and propellants. Involves combining ammonia and nitric acid in a reactor.
• Borax - Used in manufacture of glass, glazes, soap, and boric acid. Produced by separating it from the potash by a rapid cooling process. Evaporated by heating in a partial vacuum to produce crystals or granules which are dried.
• Carbonic acid gas, also known as phenol - Caustic poisonous gas used in manufacturing resins, plastics, and disinfectants. The manufacture of phenol involves a compression and refrigeration process.
• Chemicals using a nitration, alkylation or oxidation process:
- Alkylation - Involves combining alkyls with other substances to form products used in the production of paper pulp, hard soap and petroleum products.
- Nitration - Involves the combining of nitrate with an organic compound to produce nitrobenzene used in solvents, fertilizers and acids.
- Oxidation - Involves the combining of oxygen with other substances to produce products such as; but not limited to, hydrogen peroxide, protective metal coatings, and pharmaceutical preparations.
• Dry ice - Carbon dioxide in a solid form.
• Dyes, including dye and chemicals used for tinting candles - Made from organic and inorganic compounds. Manufacturing methods include weighing raw materials, pumping them into vats, heating, agitating, cooling, filtering through presses, and packaging. May also include drying and grinding into powder or may be left in liquid or paste forms.
• Fireworks.
• Mixing, blending or repackaging chemicals, but not manufacturing the ingredients - Mixed by hand or through a mechanical process.
• Nitrogen - Colorless gas that is obtained from the air and processed by compressing air in a pressurized tank, removing impurities, and separating nitrogen and oxygen through heating.
• Oxygen and hydrogen - Involves the recovery of these gaseous elements from the air by compression, expansion and cooling operations until it liquefies. Liquid air then goes to a fractionator where the oxygen is separated from the hydrogen along with other gases such as neon and helium.
• Potash - Used in fertilizer. Refined by adding an amine to the brine, which causes the salts to float to the surface where they are skimmed off. Evaporated by heating in a partial vacuum to produce crystals or granules, which are dried.
• Salt - Used in chemicals and food processing. Salt ores are dissolved in water to produce a brine of the desired concentration. Refined into common salt by adding caustic soda and soda ash. Evaporated by heating in a partial vacuum to produce crystals or granules, which are dried.
• Recovering nitrate or silver from X-ray and photo films - Placing films in developing solutions, ionizing the solution and separating the elements.
Equipment includes, but is not limited to:
• Pressurized tanks;
• Vats;
• Screens;
• Ovens;
