Controlling the potential dangers of the substances used is, of course, an important aspect in the design of a plant. We develop explosion-protected plants that are suitable for handling hazardous substances, for example even those with a CMR classification. It goes without saying that we supply you with modern plants equipped with all the necessary safety systems, that are based on possible incident scenarios and the means to prevent them occurring.
We enjoy a challenge, and offer plants for producing, for example:
In the case of multi-purpose plants, either reference syntheses and their minimum requirements are defined, or the limit values for using the plant are derived from the configuration.
The plant uses hazardous substances subject to the Hazardous Substances Order, which have the following properties: extremely flammable, highly flammable, very toxic, toxic, harmful, irritant, corrosive, sensitising, an occupational exposure limit value. Notices are available that describe the CMR properties of the substances used: EU category 2 or 3 (GHS category 1B or 2). A hazardous explosive atmosphere can develop in the plant area as per (TRBS (German Technical Rules for Operational Safety) 2152 Part 1. Liquids subject to the German Water Ecology Act are used in the plant (plant for producing, treating and using substances).
