Limiting chemical risk and improving air quality on industrial sites

A sector supported by excellence

The handling of pulverulent products generates the generation of fine dust, sometimes very volatile: active ingredients, fine particles … of harmful solvents and vapors.

The powders are sometimes classified CMR by INERIS and have low exposure rates, called OEB3 (10-100 µg / m³), OEB4 (1-10 µg / m³) or EPO 5 (& lt; 1 µg / m³) . The installation of Collective Protection Equipment (EPC) avoids the contact of operators with these particles.

Pollutants, gaseous or solid are also potentially explosive. To protect the production environment, ventilation systems limit the risk of explosion, and limit its effects if necessary.

A quantitative limit of dust in suspension in the workshop is often defined to control the exposure of operators: ELV – Exposure limit value / VME: average exposure value. WATTOHM undertakes to reduce these values below charges in order to protect the respiratory tract of all operators in the area concerned.

Regulatory release rates also exist to protect the environment. Our solutions respect these values and continuous control systems make it possible to secure releases throughout the year.

Wattohm in the chemical and pharmaceutical sector

Mastering concepts for the chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic industries

In the chemical, pharmaceutical and cosmetic fields, Wattohm masters the capture, aspiration and filtration of volatile products. On the packaging lines, at the preparation and handling stations. Wattohm also offers ventilation systems to limit the risk of explosion.

Wattohm therefore studies, designs and installs suitable solutions:

  • Empty bag hoppers, big bag loading / unloading
  • Laminar flows
  • Reactor, mixer feed
  • Mobile suction units
  • STD, ATEX, explosion-proof, inerting, INOX dust collection systems …
  • Filling or stripping of IBCs, drums, reactors
  • Dryers, granulators
  • Conveyors, material transport
  • Packaging and weighing stations
  • Sampling, sampling
  • Loading of truck tanks by manholes

Historic know-how in chemical industry

We intervene to size the suction and filtration devices in accordance with the recommendations of the INRS, in compliance with the specifications of the principals and the UIC (link to the UIC doc).

Our team dedicated to the Chemical / Pharmaceutical / Cosmetic sector is trained N1 / N2 and familiar with Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) in the sector and will be able to respond to specific requests from the sector “worldwide” … WATTOHM is surrounded by trained partners N1 / N2 and MASE who know the most severe constraints and know how to react to specific risks.

Our team offers solutions in project mode, with different milestones related to the reception process of installations: FAT, SAT, Installation Qualifications and Operational Qualifications (QIQO) to meet business requirements.
