Process Safety

All depends on the right combination!

The sensitive subject of process safety can be controlled only by comprehensive consideration and cooperation between the necessary professional disciplines. The right combination of consulting, dimensioning and lab investigations ensures a safe and economical plant operation with a high level of processes control.

Safety related consulting

Functional Safety Services

Safety concepts and analyses, evaluation of chemical and physical processes

Implementation of the requirements of IEC 61511 for safety functions

Dimensioning of safety devices

Substance testing

Careful selection of design scenarios and the determination of lab data form the basis for a safe design

Lab investigations of chemical reactions, thermal stability, burning and explosion behaviour

Our team of experts consists of scientists and engineers, as well as certified technical employees.
Through our cooperation in the decisive working groups and expert committees we have access to the latest developments and help to shape them.
