  • Flammable Hazards

    Flammable Hazards The difference between a gas and a vapor is that vapors arise from liquids, whereas gases are normally in a gaseous state. Flammable vapors present additional sampling concerns (for example, we must prevent vapors from returning to the liquid state during sampling). The 3 Elements of Fire Three elements must be present for a flammable ...

  • Chemical storage buildings isolate hazardous liquids and minimize damage from spills

    The improper storage of corrosives and flammable liquids is the leading cause of spills that can result in damage to facilities and impact worker safety. One of the most effective practices to help minimize damage from chemical spills is to isolate the various chemical hazards. Since knowledge of chemical compatibility is critical, it is important to understand that there are two major types of ...

  • Reduce accident and fire risk with flammable storage safety cans

    Flammable or combustible liquids are used in almost every industry and place of business. Gasoline, chemicals, solvents and a variety of other hazardous liquids are found in varying amounts and locations in industrial, commercial and residential settings. Since many of these liquids are relatively common, it is important to understand the dangers they present and the special storage and handling ...

  • Case study - Destruction of inert process emissions

    Many chemical companies use batch reactors to make their products.  These reactors typically have vents which are opened and closed during emptying, filling, mixing, heating or cooling and other steps of the production process.  The gases coming from these vents must be controlled under most government regulations.  Generally speaking, the emissions produced are inert (little or no ...

  • Pulse shear stress for anaerobic membrane bioreactor fouling control

    Increase of shear stress at membrane surfaces is a generally applied strategy to minimize membrane fouling. It has been reported that a two-phase flow, better known as slug flow, is an effective way to increase shear stress. Hence, slug flow was introduced into an anaerobic membrane bioreactor for membrane fouling control. Anaerobic suspended sludge was cultured in an anaerobic membrane ...

  • Health Hazards of Welding

    At present, it is estimated that more than one million workers are employed as welders worldwide (Sundin, 1998), with more than three million performing welding intermittently as part of their work duties (Sferlazza and Beckett, 1991). Manual metal arc welding (MMAW) and flux core arc welding (FCAW) are two commonly used procedures in the construction industry and in numerous other industrial ...

  • Ecomex uses Oreco NitroGen to ensure an inert and safe oil tank cleaning operation case study

    Oreco NitroGen helps Ecomex in Mexico produce nitrogen on-site in combination with its tank cleaning operations – freeing it from costly third-party suppliers. As the name suggests, Ecomex is driven by environmental concerns and one of the primary services of Ecomex Mexico S.A. de C.V. is safe and environmental-friendly cleaning of large crude oil tanks and oil recovery. But manually ...
