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.
Plastics, Resins, Rubber
The large-scale operations usually associated with the plastics, resins, and rubber industries usually involve flammable gases, vapors, and/or explosible powders, which can present fire and explosion hazards if proper precautions are not taken. There have been many industrial explosions involving resin and plastic dusts in equipment such as reactors, blenders, silos, hoppers, dust collectors, and more. 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 and mitigation techniques, coupled with good management systems, and a developed skill base to ensure the identified hazards and risks are properly identified and mitigated.
We partner with our clients in the plastics, resins, and rubber industries 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.
