【Skin, Eye, and Respiratory Irritations】
Causes severe eye and skin irritation.
Phosphoric acid mist is an irritant to the eyes, upper respiratory tract, and skin. The solid is especially irritating to the skin in the presence of moisture. A dilute solution buffered to pH 2.5 caused a moderate, brief stinging sensation but no injury when dropped in the human eye. A 75% solution will cause severe skin burns.
【Cleanup Methods】
1. Ventilate area of spill or leak. 2. If in the solid form, collect spilled material in the most convenient and safe manner for reclamation or for disposal in a secured sanitary landfill. 3. If in the liquid form, collect for reclamation or absorb in vermiculite, dry sand, earth, or a similar material.
Cellosized absorbent material may be used for vapor suppression and containment of spills.
Air spill: Apply water spray or mist to knock down vapors. Vapor knockdown water is corrosive or toxic and should be diked for containment.
Water spill: Neutralize with agricultural lime (slaked lime), crushed limestone, or sodium bicarbonate. Adjust pH to neutral (pH-7). Use mechanical dredges or lifts to remove immobilized masses of pollutants and precipitates.
Land spill: Dig a pit, pond, lagoon, holding area to contain liquid or solid material. /SRP: If time permits, pits, ponds, lagoons, soak holes, or holding areas should be sealed with an impermeable flexible membrane liner./ Dike surface flow using soil, sand bags, foamed polyurethane, or foamed concrete. Absorb bulk liquid with fly ash or cement powder. Neutralize with agricultural lime, crushed limestone, or sodium bicarbonate.

Reacts with strong alkalies and most metals.
Strong caustics, most metals [Note: Readily reacts with metals to form flammable hydrogen gas. DO NOT MIX WITH SOLUTIONS CONTAINING BLEACH OR AMMONIA].
Mixtures with nitromethane are explosive. Reacts with chlorides + stainless steel to form explosive hydrogen gas.
【Other Preventative Measures】
Ventilation control: acid cleaning: nature & extent of ventilation control required depends on rate of acid mist escape; where exposure mild addn of inhibitor may make process or slot ventilation unnecessary. inhibitors should never be added to automatically timed conveyorized job without adjustment.
Phosphoric acid soln in water is used alone or with a mixture of alcohols and ethers, including butyl cellosolve, to remove light rust on steel. If mists, fogs, or elevated temperatures are involved, ventilation control is necessary.
In presence of impurities in metals, nascent hydrogen may be generated which could lead to formation of phosphine gas. It is necessary to avoid inhalation of vapors coming from phosphoric acid metal cleaning tanks. Slotted local exhaust ventilation @ upper edges of tanks recommended.
Clothing contaminated with phosphoric acid should be placed in closed containers for storage until it can be discarded or until provision is made for the removal of phosphoric acid from the clothing. If the clothing is to be laundered or otherwise cleaned to remove the phosphoric acid, the person performing the operation should be informed of phosphoric acid's hazardous properties.
Non-impervious clothing which becomes contaminated with phosphoric acid should be removed immediately and not reworn until the phosphoric acid is removed from the clothing.
Avoid breathing vapors. keep upwind. Avoid bodily contact with the material. do not handle broken packages without protective equipment. Wash away any material which may have contacted the body with copious amounts of water or soap and water.
The worker should immediately wash the skin when it becomes contaminated.
Work clothing that becomes wet or significantly contaminated should be removed and replaced.
Workers whose clothing may have become contaminated should change into uncontaminated clothing before leaving the work premises.
SRP: the scientific literature for the use of contact lenses in industry is conflicting. The benefit or detrimental effects of wearing contact lenses depend not only upon the substance, but also on factors including the form of the substance, characteristics and duration of the exposure, the uses of other eye protection equipment, and the hygiene of the lenses. However, there may be individual substances whose irritating or corrosive properties are such that the wearing of contact lenses would be harmful to the eye. in those specific cases, contact lenses should not be worn. In any event, the usual eye protection equipment should be worn even when contact lenses are in place.
SRP: contaminated protective clothing should be segregated in such a manner so that there is no direct personal contact by personnel who handle, dispose, or clean the clothing. Quality assurance to ascertain the completeness of the cleaning procedures should be implemented before the decontaminated protective clothing is returned for reuse by the workers. Contaminated clothing should not be taken home at end of shift, but should remain at employee's place of work for cleaning.
【Protective Equipment and Clothing】
Goggles or face shield
Wear rubber gloves, and overalls prepared with a total seal.
Wear special protective clothing and positive pressure self-contained breathing apparatus.
Respiratory protection (supplied-air respirator with full facepiece or self-contained breathing apparatus) should be available where these compounds are manufactured or used and should be worn in case of emergency and overexposure. /Phosphorus compounds/
Wear appropriate personal protective clothing to prevent skin contact.
Wear appropriate eye protection to prevent eye contact.
Eyewash fountains should be provided in areas where there is any possibility that workers could be exposed to liquids containing > 1.6% of contaminant; this is irrespective of the recommendation involving the wearing of eye protection.
Facilities for quickly drenching the body should be provided within the immediate work area for emergency use where there is a possibility of exposure with liquids containing > 1.6% of contaminant. [Note: It is intended that these facilities provide a sufficient quantity or flow of water to quickly remove the substance from any body areas likely to be exposed. The actual determination of what constitutes an adequate quick drench facility depends on the specific circumstances. In certain instances, a deluge shower should be readily available, whereas in others, the availability of water from a sink or hose could be considered adequate.]

Use and Manufacturing

【Use and Manufacturing】
Methods of Manufacturing
two new processes for the production of phosphoric acid have been developed; The besa-2 process, developed by bohna engineering & research, san francisco, and occidental research corp's kpa process. In the besa-2 process, phosphate rock and sulfuric acid react in two steps. The first is the conventional means of producing single super-phosphate, gypsum, and monocalcium phosphate. In the second step, there is digestion of the single superphosphate in methanol with sulfuric acid. The second new method, the kpa process, reduces phosphate ore to phosphorus in a high-temperature rotary kiln. It utilizes the heats of combustion of phosphorus and carbon monoxide in the kiln to provide most of the energy required for reduction and replaces the electric power used in the furnace process with fossil fuel as the energy source.
Wet-process acid is manufactured by the digestion of phosphate rock (calcium phosphate) with sulfuric acid. Other acids such as hydrochloric acid may be used, but the sulfuric acid-based processes are by far the most prevalent. Phosphoric acid is separated from the resultant calcium sulfate slurry by filtration.
Thermal (furnace) process: White (yellow) phosphorus is burned in excess air and the resulting phosphorus pentoxide is hydrated, heats of combustion and hydration are removed, and the phosphoric acid mist collected.

Biomedical Effects and Toxicity

【Pharmacological Action】
Materials used in the production of dental bases, restorations, impressions, prostheses, etc.
【Therapeutic Uses】
Diluted phosphoric acid national formulary: it has been employed in lead poisoning and in other conditions in which it is desired to administer large amt of phosphate and @ same time produce mild acidosis. It has been given in dose of 60 ml daily (5 ml/hr) under carefully controlled conditions.
Phosphoric acid is used to control the pH of the urinary tract in many animals, particularly in mink and cats, to prevent stone formation.
Pharmaceutic aid (solvent).
MEDICATION (VET): has been used to treat lead poisoning.
【Biomedical Effects and Toxicity】
The hygroscopic growth of phosphoric acid aerosol (diameter change > 0.5 micrometers) within the human tracheobronchial tree is modeled to investigate changes in deposition characteristics when compared to nonhygroscopic aerosols of identical preinspired size. Phosphoric acid particles are assumed to grow in a stepwise fashion to 99% relative humidity within conducting airways of the lung, having initially reached equilibrium at 90% relative humidity (T= 37 degrees) in the trachea. Deposition efficiencies for growth and no growth are calculated from theoretical equations for inertial impaction, sedimentation, and diffusion. The results show that neglecting the growth of an inhaled phosphoric acid aerosol may result in underestimation of the total deliverable dose by a factor of as much as 600-700%. Significant differences in regional deposition sites for hygroscopic or nonhygroscopic aerosols are predicted. Increased deposition efficiencies imply that measured physical properties (respirable fraction, aerodynamic diameter) of aerosols alone are not sufficient to assess deposition characteristics within the lung; hygroscopic growth must also be considered. [Martonen TB, Clark ML; Fundam Appl Toxicol 3 (1): 10-5 (1983)] PubMed Abstract
/Ortho/ phosphate is absorbed from, and to a limited extent secreted into, the gastrointestinal tract. Transport of phosphate from the gut lumen is an active, energy-dependent process that is modified by several factors. Vitamin D stimulates phosphate absorption, an effect reported to precede its action on calcium ion transport. In adults, about two thirds of the ingested phosphate is absorbed, and that which is absorbed is almost entirely excreted into the urine. In growing children, phosphate balance is positive. Concentrations of phosphate in plasma are higher in children than in adults. This "hyperphosphatemia" decreases the affinity of hemoglobin for oxygen and is hypothesized to explain the physiological "anemia" of childhood. /Phosphates/

Environmental Fate and Exposure Potential

【Environmental Fate/Exposure Summary】
Aquatic Fate: While acidity may be reduced readily by natural water hardness minerals, the phosphate may persist indefinitely.
