Responsibility is taken seriously: the chemical industry is one of the industries with the most stringent safety regulations. Safe working conditions and efficient personal protection as well as an effective and sustainable company philosophy are a priority in this industry. Regular update, servicing and maintenance work is required due to the high stress placed on equipment by exposure to very aggressive substances. Depending on the size and type of plants and operations concerned, complete shutdowns are not unusual; however, specific production area maintenance and servicing operations are more common. If possible downtimes are reduced to a minimum, while ensuring a maximum of safety and protection for personnel, contractors, residents, the environment and the equipment.
Access to tanks or piping (confined spaces) is often required for maintenance tasks. Here personnel are especially at risk from toxic and combustible gases as the concentration of contaminants may be higher in such spaces. In this application Dräger´s portable gas detection and measuring devices are used for the monitoring and entry measurements. Dräger gas detection devices can be used to monitor and detect many substances which may be present and provide reliable warning using visual and acoustic alarms when limit values are exceeded.
The Dräger product range also includes light respiratory protection as well as respiratory protection systems and supplied air equipment for long-term operations in potentially dangeous atmospheres. During a shutdown or within the scope of maintenance tasks, Dräger can provide all the equipment required. We can also take care of the regular maintenance and servicing of devices and equipment. You can benefit from our extensive product range as well as our widespread service network which ensures fast reaction times.
