Bromomethane (CH3Br ) Emergency Shutdown System

About Bromomethane

At standard temperature and pressure, bromomethane is a colorless, non-flammable gas with no distinct smell. Bromomethane is also known as methyl bromide. Inhalation of sufficient quantities of bromomethane can cause muscle tremors, seizures, kidney damage, nerve damage, and even death.

Bromomethane is used as a pesticide for rats, insects and fungi. It is shipped in pressurized containers.

Synonyms: Methyl bromide, Methane, Bromo

Accidental Release of Bromomethane

Powell Emergency Valve Closure Systems are designed to prevent significant releases of bromomethane. Exposure to even small quantities of this fluid can cause injury and even death. In the case of an accidental release, the emergency shutdown system will close the bromomethane valve within seconds, effectively stopping the release regardless of where it occurs.

It is possible to prevent an accidental release of bromomethane. Contact us today to discuss your specific application requirements.
