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.
Explosible dust can be expected in almost all wood processing facilities ranging from sawmills to different woodworking processes such as machining, cutting, routing and turning, sanding, using compressed air to blow dust, and as a consequence of poor housekeeping. Dust clouds are also created inside dust collectors. Whereas the explosibility of wood depends very much on its moisture content, particle size, and quantity, dust explosion hazards should be expected in any location or process equipment where wood is being processed.
We partner with our clients in the wood 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, Process Hazard Analysis, and incident investigation.
