DSEAR / ATEX Risk assessment

DSEAR / ATEX Risk assessment

Our extensive experience in the industry allows us to deliver risk assessment to help you comply with the DSEAR / ATEX.

It is a requirement that all work premises undertake a risk assessment covering processes that may involve the use of materials that could cause a risk of harm to employees from fire, explosion or energetic releases.  This covers flammable gases, solvents, vapours, dusts, incompatible chemicals and self-heating (spontaneous ignition).   The risk assessment must cover a number of areas:

• Hazard identification of all the materials present that can potentially create a flammable atmosphere.
• Collation of fire and explosion information on the identified materials through test data and Material Safety Data Sheets.
• Determination of all potential sources of ignition for the processes where the substances are used.
• Evaluation of the risk of an ignition and the effects on personnel, plant items and the process.
• Identification and assessment of existing process hazard control measures and recommend any improvements required to comply with DSEAR.
• Identification and assessment of existing fire/explosion protection measures and recommend any improvements required to comply with DSEAR.

Many companies are aware of the explosion risks associated with gases and vapours. What is less understood is the explosion risk caused by airborne dust and powder igniting causing a so called ‘Dust Explosion’. BRE can assist in assessing this risk and can undertake dust explosion testing of your powders to enable suitable protection measures to be fitted to your process. This may take the form of explosion venting, explosion suppression or explosion containment.

Dust explosion testing

BRE Global has over fifty years of experience in assessing and classification of the explosion and ignition risk of dust and powders, from laboratory scale testing to large-scale research projects.

Our test and consulting services include:

Dust hazard classification test

Provides dust testing for the qualitative assessment of the explosibility of the dust:

  • Group A : Combustible dusts which ignite and propagate flame (explosible).
  • Group B : Non combustible dusts which do not ignite (non-explosible).

Dust explosion prevention tests

If the classification test indicates dust is Group A then the following dust tests provide quantitative data for the design of preventative measures:

Tests are carried out to either European EN or American ASTM standard.

Tests are carried out to European or International Standards:
• Layer ignition temperature (LIT) to IEC 1241-2-1 Part 2 Section 1.
• Minimum ignition temperature (MIT) to IEC 1241-2-1 Part 2 Section 1.
• Minimum explosible concentration (MEC) to BS EN 14034-3.
• Minimum ignition energy (MIE) to BS EN 13821.
• Limiting oxygen concentration (LOC) to BS EN 14034-4.
Dust explosion protection test
• Explosion indices test (Pmax and Kst) to BS EN 14034 Parts 1 and 2.

Dust explosion protection test

The 20-litre sphere dust test is used to measure:

  • Maximum explosion pressure test (Pmax) (pdf) – Rate of pressure rise test (KST) (pdf) -The Explosion Indices test measures the maximum explosion pressure (Pmax) and rate of pressure rise. The Kst value is then calculated which may be used to design new explosion protection systems or verify existing designs. The test follows ISO 6184/1:1985 and BS EN 14034 Parts 1 & 2 and the results will assist in making a DSEAR risk assessment. The test can also be carried out to the American Standard ASTM E1226-05.
  • Kst and St. Classification test. (pdf)

Dust consultancy

As a member of BSI Committee FSH/23, which covers dust explosion testing standards, BRE can provide advice on existing and forthcoming European and International dust testing standards. We also offer a range of consultancy services to the process industry covering:

Flammability hazards of bulk powder handling

Fires can occur under a number of circumstances during the processing and bulk storage of combustible powders:

  • Self-heating in the bulk storage of combustible materials.
  • Accumulations of hot material, for example in dryers, where the heat generated within the material may exceed heat lost to the surroundings.
  • Layers of dusts on hot surfaces.

BRE has extensive experience in advising on the most suitable classification and combustibility tests required to assess the potential hazard and the application of the results to practical applications.

Self-heating bulk powder tests (spontaneous combustion)

Self-heating leading to apparently spontaneous combustion is the process of ignition and combustion in a body of material without the intervention of an external ignition source. BRE conducts the following types of combustibility tests:

  • Screening test – a quick test used to determine if the material poses a self-heating hazard.
  • Isothermal basket test – used to determine the critical ignition temperature of a material, from a series of tests at different oven temperatures and basket sizes used to ascertain the safe storage times for particular sizes of storage such as silos etc.
  • Establishes if the material is classified as dangerous goods under the UN Recommendations on the Transport of Dangerous Goods – Model Regulations.
  • Aerated/diffusion cell test – used to assess the ignition properties of bulk material collected in dryers.

Powder layer tests

Where the hazard under consideration is related to the accumulation of material on hot-surfaces, or inside dryers isothermal tests can be carried out on layers of material. BRE conducts the following types of classification tests:

  • Hot-plate layer ignition test
  • Aerated powder layer test

REACH services

Environmental assessment of chemicals

BRE’s Chemical Assessment Team are experts in the environmental risk assessment of chemicals. The team have a long history of providing independent and authoritative advice to clients on the risks to the environment associated with the production, use and disposal of chemicals and act as advisors to both government and industry.

The REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals) regulation has major implications for companies within the UK and EU that produce, import of use chemical substances, or products containing chemical substances. Under this legislation, companies have to Register the chemicals they produce or import, and for the more dangerous substances they will also have to carry out a Chemical Safety Assessment and produce a Chemical Safety Report outlining the conditions under which the substance can be used safely. Users of the substance or products containing the substance (downstream users) will have to demonstrate that they comply with the conditions of safe use. Substances that have certain hazardous properties may also be subject to an Authorisation process.

The important deadlines for full registration of a pre-registered substance are:

  • 30 November 2010 for substances manufactured or imported at >1,000 tonnes per year (plus substances at lower tonnages with specific hazard classifications).
  • 31 May 2013 for the remaining substances above 100 tonnes per year.
  • 31 May 2018 for the remaining substances above 1 tonne per year.

BRE’s REACH team can help clients with a wide range of REACH requirements including:

  • Information and literature searching and critical review/interpretation of data;
  • Estimating emissions to the environment from point and diffuse sources and developing Exposure Scenarios;
  •  Prediction of the bioaccumulation, fate and effects of chemicals in the environment;
  • Assessment of environmental fate, behaviour, exposure, levels and effects of chemicals;
  • Preparation of Registration Dossiers and IUCLID datasets;
  • Chemical Safety Assessments;
  • Chemical Safety Reports;
  • Identification of PBTs and vPvBs (Substances of Very High Concern) and advice on Authorisations;
  • Environmental modelling;
  • Advice on testing requirements;
  • Provide advice and training on REACH and associated models such as EUSES;
  • Implications for, and obligations, of downstream users; and
  • Classification and understanding of the REACH status of chemicals.

As well as literature based work, BRE has extensive experience of indoor air quality monitoringmeasurement of VOC emissions from materials,  and outdoor air pollution modelling.

HAZOP Attendance/Close Out

HAZOP is a well established, industry best practice, technique for helping to identify and control process safety risks.

However HAZOP studies only identify areas of unacceptable risk – the study itself does nothing to actually reduce the risks to acceptable levels. Risk reduction only happens after the actions identified by HAZOPs are acted on and closed off.
