Topic: Lead sulfate

  Lead(II) sulfate - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
It is also known as white lead, fast white, milk white, sulphuric acid lead salt or anglistlite.
Lead sulfate is toxic by inhalation, ingestion and skin contact.
It is a cumulative poison, and repeated exposure may lead to anemia, kidney damage, eyesight damage or damage to the central nervous system (especially in children).

 Lead - MSN Encarta
Lead is toxic when taken internally; although ordinary water usually contains salts that form a coating on pipes, inhibiting the formation of soluble lead hydroxide, pipes used for carrying drinking water should not contain lead.
Lead is widely distributed all over the world in the form of its sulfide, the ore galena.
Lead is used in enormous quantities in storage batteries and in sheathing electric cables.

Although lead is seldom found uncombined in nature, its compounds are widely distributed throughout the world, principally in the ores galena, cerussite, and anglesite.
Lead is used for covering cables and as a lining for laboratory sinks, tanks, and the “chambers” in the lead-chamber process for the manufacture of sulfuric acid.
Although lead and most of its compounds are only slightly soluble in water, the use of lead pipe to carry drinking water is dangerous, since lead is a cumulative poison that is not excreted from the body (see lead poisoning).

 Process for recycling junk lead-acid batteries - Patent 4118219
To separate the lead carbonate from the barren solution from which it is precipitated, the slurry formed in the precipitation vessel is passed through a filter 23, with the recovered solids then being washed and dried as indicated at 24 and 25.
To convert the lead carbonate to basic lead sulfates, which is the second option illustrated in the drawing, the lead carbonate is sulfated with sulfuric acid in a sulfating cell 30, and then calcined in a furnace 31 at a temperature of about 400.degree.
A portion of the lead oxide generated from the lead carbonate recovered in the above examples was converted to a battery oxide paste by mixing 80 grams of the oxide with 23.5 grams of water and 4.80 cc of sulfuric acid with a specific gravity of 1.40.

Because hard lead sulfate is a non-conductive material, when it coats the electrode plates, it causes a reduction in the area needed for the electro-chemical reactions.
Lead sulfate that exists when a battery is not fully charged crystallizes to become a hard lead sulfate when left in a battery for a period of time.
Also, when crystallized lead sulfate grows to a large size on the plates, it precipitates from the plates when it is large enough and accumulates at the bottom of the battery case.

 Lead Acid Storage Battery   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-01)
Although the battery and its associated lead mining, refining and recovery businesses are an environmental liability, and the battery's mass is a drawback in its use in vehicles, the continued use of this class of batteries reflects the serious problems in developing alternatives.
Lead sulfate is fairly insoluble so that as soon as Pb(II) ions are formed by either reaction, the ions immediately precipitate as lead sulfate.
In use, some of the lead sulfate (and the bulk solid in the grid) crumbles and falls to the bottom of the battery eventually leading to a loss of charge and shorting.

 LEAD (Pb)
The principal method of extracting lead from galena is to roast the ore—that is, convert it to the oxide, and reduce the oxide with coke in a blast furnace.
Lead monoxide, or litharge (PbO), a yellow, crystalline powder formed by heating lead in air, is used in making flint glass, as a drier in oils and varnishes, and in the manufacture of insecticides.
Lead taken internally in any of its forms is highly toxic; the effects are usually felt after it has accumulated in the body over a period of time.

 Forming of tetrabasic lead sulfate battery electrodes - Patent 4415410
Positive plates made from tetrabasic lead sulfate paste are conventionally formed, prior to assembly, in a bath of electrolyte having a specific gravity ranging from 1.005 to 1.015, a process requiring between sixty and seventy-two hours at a conventional current of 9 amperes per plate.
Therefore, tetrabasic lead sulfate battery electrodes are conventionally formed in forming tanks of large volume, so that inherent sulfuric acid in the plates cannot cause a high electrolyte specific gravity, with larger heat dissipation area, and where the lead sulfate sludge can be removed.
As a result, tetrabasic lead sulfate battery electrodes can be formed in their final container or jar, eliminating substantial amounts of handling involved with loading and unloading plates, and the inherent risks of exposure to lead dust, sulfuric acid and acid mist.

 Lead Based Paint
For color, lead pigments such as red lead (a lead oxide with 4 oxygens and bright orange in color), and blue lead (lead sulfate with lead oxide, zinc oxide, and carbon) may be used industrially where corrosion protection and color on metal is needed.
Lead is used in many batteries (the lead-acid vehicle battery the most common example), in ammunition, pipes and various metal products, solder and various electrical equipment, for radiation shielding,and ammunition.
Lead compounds are found in paints, certain types of glass and ceramics, as rodenticides, and as a reagent or container in many chemical manufacturing processes.

 Lead, Tin and Lead Alloys
Lead alloys, such as old pewter, which is an alloy of tin and lead, oxidize to the same compounds as the two parent metals.
However, since lead is susceptible to solvent action by the electrolyte, when it is not cathodically protected, the current must be flowing before putting the specimen in the electrolytic tank and must not be cut off while the specimen is immersed in the tank.
Since lead, tin, and pewter are susceptible to attack by strong alkalies, a sodium carbonate electrolyte is safer for use in electrolysis than a sodium hydroxide electrolyte.

 Battery Basics
This build-up of lead sulfate is normal during a discharge cycle.
Lead sulfate is a soft material, which can is reconverted back into lead and sulfuric acid, provided the discharged battery is immediately connected to a battery charger.
Lead acid batteries should be charged after each discharge of more the 50% of its rated capacity and during or after prolonged storage of 30 days or more.

 It's Elemental - The Element Lead
Most lead is obtained by roasting galena in hot air, although nearly one third of the lead used in the United States is obtained through recycling efforts.
Lead is also used as a covering on some wires and cables to protect them from corrosion, as a material to absorb vibrations and sounds and in the manufacture of ammunition.
Lead monoxide (PbO), also known as litharge, is a yellow solid that is used to make some types of glass, such as lead crystal and flint glass, in the vulcanizing of rubber and as a paint pigment.

 Whitening Effects of Peroxide Gels on Darkened Lead White Paint
Disturbing from an aesthetic standpoint is the situation where a peroxide treatment results in the partial conversion of lead sulfide to lead sulfate, with a concomitant partial color reversion from fl to gray.
The effect of cellulose ethers in hydrogen peroxide formulations for the conversion of lead sulfide to lead sulfate would appear to be analogous to that of the bleaching formulations commonly used by dentists.
Empirical results of using gels to control some of the factors that affect the conversion of lead sulfide to lead sulfate suggest that the efficiency of peroxide is boosted in the presence of such gels.

Lead and lead compounds may be absorbed through the skin on prolonged exposure; the symptoms of lead poisoning described for ingestion exposure may occur.
Lead is a cumulative poison and exposure even to small amounts can raise the body's content to toxic levels.
Areas in which exposure to lead metal or lead compounds may occur should be identified by signs or appropriate means, and access to the area should be limited to authorized persons.

 CALEDONITE (Copper Lead Carbonate Sulfate Hydroxide)
There are however more sulfates than carbonates in its formula and it would therefore seem to make the most sense to place it in the Sulfate Class as opposed to the Carbonate Class.
The sulfate ion is also more complex and a stronger electronegative anion than the carbonate anion and mineralogists sometimes classify minerals in terms of their highest complexity and/or electronegativity.
It has a nice high luster, due to its lead content and a beautiful blue to green color due to its copper content.
