Testing for Safety

At Sigma-HSE we regularly test process materials from industry for fire and explosion properties. Providing detailed information on the properties of material to confirm or establish a safe processing environment.

We have made process safety testing as compact and comprehensive as possible by breaking it down into 3 main Basis of Safety approaches.

  • Avoidance of Ignition Sources
  • Explosion Protection and Prevention
  • Thermal Decomposition

We focus on the Basis of Safety for the various operations on the material, from offloading/ charging storage vessels, conveyance, milling, drying, treatment and final processing through to packaging and downstream transportation. The adjacent technical datasheet outlines our approach to defining the best testing packages for your needs and provides a concise breakdown of the benefits of test data in developing a safe operating environment.
