Any company that is in any way involved with the handling, processing, producing, transporting, and/or storing of flammable and combustible gases and liquids, combustible solids, explosible powders/dusts, and/or reactive chemicals would require our process safety services.
Although the bulk and fine chemical industries operate on different scales and with different equipment and processes, what they normally have in common is the presence of flammable materials – gases, vapors, aerosols, fine dusts and powder layers – most of which can present an explosion or fire hazard if proper precautions are not taken. The complexity of modern equipment and processes means that the only reliable approach to avoiding these hazards is through the systematic and rigorous application of hazard and risk identification techniques, coupled with good management systems and a developed skill base to ensure the identified hazards and risks are properly mitigated.
We partner with our clients in the chemical industry to help them identify, assess, prevent, and control fire, explosion, and accidental loss of containment hazards in their operations. Our services include expert consulting, laboratory testing, and training in the specialist fields of dust explosion & fire hazards, electrostatic hazards & processing problems, gas & vapor flammability hazards, Process Hazard Analysis, Process Safety Management, and incident investigation.
