PROPELLANT CHARGING ROOM DESIGN
expertise in hydrocarbons combines over 100 years of
experience. Consulting services cover hydrocarbon safety, safer design and re-design of state-of-the-art
propellant charging room (PCR) facilities (including construction design covering ventilation, gas detection and explosion protection) with fully integrated safety interlocks for both production and laboratory facilities.
The choice of location and proper construction of a propellant charging
and pump room for the charging of liquefied aerosol propellants into
aerosol containers is of primary importance in achieving sage aerosol
Final configuration and design of the propellant charging and pump room
can vary significantly due to differences in filling equipment, filling
rates, protective systems used, compatibility issues, local fire and
building code adaptations, etc.
Current fire and building safety standards should be regarded as minimum
plant and personnel safety requirements. The construction aspects
of propellant charging and pump rooms should incorporate as closely as
possible the industry state-of-the-art technology. Improved
technologies should be incorporated into propellant charging and pump
rooms to the extent practical.
