Ammonia releases were discussed on the HazMat Guys Nation Roundtable after the deadly release at a cold storage facility in Boston earlier this month.  See below.

Todd Burton reminds us that” remember for Ammonia LEL = 15%, 10% of the LEL = 1.5% converted to ppm = 15,000 ppm. Ammonia is both toxic and can be flammable. Discuss response with YOUR crews and have a plan before the next response.
