We are here to help you identify, analyze, and resolve your internal explosion hazards. Our contribution to the standards developed by the National Fire Protection Agency (NFPA) Explosion Protection Committee, go well beyond participation on the committee by contributing test data that have been leveraged by the Explosion Protection Committee over the past two decades to improve and validate the correlations within the relevant NFPA standards.  As a result of active involvement in this committee, our professionals have developed an intimate understanding of the tools and techniques available for analyzing internal explosion hazards.

Changes in Facility Siting Standards: API 752, 753, & 756

In industries where the daily risks of potentially catastrophic events, such as vapor cloud explosions, are a constant concern, there’s no room for compromise – inherently safer design principles, effective hazard identifications and analyses, and adherence to up-to-date industry standards aren’t just important, they’re essential. Since its establishment in 1919, the American Petroleum Institute (API)…
