In case of excessive pressure within the capacitor the vent may operate and release this pressure. In case of vent operation gas becomes visi-
ble, when the component is in operation. If so, directly turn off the application and disconnect it from the power source. If the application will
not be turned off, a possible short circuit of capacitor or a short circuit due to bridging of liquefied gas can possibly damage the circuit and in
worst case the application may be dramatically damaged.
Do not stay or position body or face above or in direction of the vent, because in the event of any vent operation, the releasing gas temperature
may have over 100 °C.
In case of contact with the electrolyte on skin, wash the skin immediately with soap and water. If the eyes will get in contact with the releasing
gas, immediately wash the eyes with water. Whether the gas was inhaled, directly use gargle.
Please contact your local responsible or organization for proper disposal of capacitor.
Also take care to be compliant in order to your local governmental law and restrictions. In case incineration, it should be done with more than
800 °C. Lower temperatures at incineration can result in toxic gases (e.g. chlorine). To avoid any explosion of capacitor, punch holes into the
can or crush the capacitor before incineration.
