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.
Many of the gases, liquids, and powders that are used in the formulation of pharmaceutical products are highly flammable, explosible, reactive, and/or toxic. In addition, many of the operations typically required in pharmaceutical facilities – from delivery to processing in reactors through to filtration, drying, milling/micronizing, blending and packaging – have the potential to generate flammable/explosible atmospheres. It is therefore necessary for pharmaceutical facilities to clearly understand the deflagration hazards presented by the materials and equipment utilized in their processes.
We partner with our clients in the pharmaceutical 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.
