Chemical & Energetic Material Hazards
BakerRisk’s staff includes chemical engineers, chemists, and others with extensive experience in evaluating the hazards of energetic chemicals, explosives, and chemical processes. Previous clients include high explosives manufacturers, government contractors, and industrial clients that handle materials such as organic peroxides, nitrate esters, fertilizers, fine powdered metals, and automobile airbag propellants. We perform hazard analysis and small scale testing to identify and mitigate possible explosive reactions. Computer-based analysis includes finite element modeling of potential runaway reactions, thermal and kinetic analyses, and thermochemicals equilibrium calculations.
