Most petroleum, petrochemical and chemical processing companies contain large amounts of flammable and toxic materials. These pose various types of fire and explosion hazards such as:
- Vapor Cloud Explosion (VCE)
- Flash fire
- Jet fire
- Vapor blow-down
Any combination of the above events occur in industry depending on the initiation type, chemicals involved and the strength of the storage tanks.
We have gained years of experience in these areas through government contracts and commercial projects. We developed engineering models for the above release scenarios encapsulating the most up to
date calculation methods as well as our expertise. We provide consulting services based on these models to investigate such occurrences.
