Video: Anhydrous Ammonia Emergency Class

According to the Princeton, IL, fire department firefighters often use far too much water when fighting an anhydrous ammonia leak. This creates a problem with run-off, and the water carries away with it ammonia vapor which is released downstream. A super-fine mist creates much more water surface area and will absorb much more ammonia, while at the same time it creates a much smaller containment area and reduces run-off.
