Our Solutions

Process safety solutions for the painting & coating industry

Identify, assess and mitigate risk from fire and explosion incidents for downstream industrial and domestic use within the paintings and coatings industry

Do these problems sound familiar?

Accurately identify and understand the properties of your solvents

Although there has been a growth in aqueous-based coatings systems rather than solvent based systems, solvents are prone to unique hazards that pose serious fire and explosion risk

Choosing a suitable basis of safety

Explosion protection measures include containment, explosion venting and/or suppression. A basis of safety should be correctly implemented per equipment

Correctly categorising hazardous zones

Knowing how often, when and where explosible vapours and dusts may be generated which can mix with air to produce an explosive atmosphere – this is known as the Hazardous Area Classification which determines a risk based zone

Unfamiliarity regarding electrical equipment and electrostatics in your process

An ignition source may be hot surfaces, electrostatic discharges or open flames. It is important to test and understand the potential electrical charge of all of these key areas, equipment (earthing & extraction) and materials.
