Electrostatic hazards associated with liquid and powder processing 22 November 2016

Often an electrostatic ignition hazard arises when the electrostatic charge generated in a process is allowed to accumulate to levels sufficient to give rise to electrostatic discharges.  Thus, the first step in an electrostatic hazard assessment is identifying where in the process electrostatic charge can be generated and accumulated.  ...

Hazardex 2017 Conference - Turnkey Plasma Gasification Solution for the destruction of Hazardous Wastes 17 November 2016

Traditionally, landfills have been the accepted method for waste disposal. Economically efficient in theory, landfills have created environmental issues for a majority of municipalities. As unknown and unplanned waste streams find their way into landfills, negative impacts occur to ground water tables in the adjacent areas. In many jurisdictions, landfills are reaching its capacity that demands additional land for waste disposal. ...

Hazardex 2017 Conference: Safety First – The effective sealing of cables in explosive atmospheres; Barrier type cable gland selection and application in the 21st century 04 November 2016

In February 2016, the UK Health & Safety Executive (HSE) issued a safety notice concerning the selection and application of barrier type cable glands. This action was the culmination of industry dialogue, led by EEMUA and the BSI standards development committee EXL/31/3, with the UK initially voting against publication of IEC 60079-14:2013 (edition 5.0)....
