Bespoke Firevault enabling safe segregated storage of highly flammable liquids and oxidising chemicals – Lubricants SW Ltd.

The clients requirements

Lubricants SW Ltd, a main supplier of Chemstore in the south west approached our specialist engineers with an urgent requirement for a risk assessment of the flammable liquids stored on a client’s site in Devon. The client Foregeway Ltd. had large quantities of flammable liquids that had been raised as a concern by the environmental health & safety department in the company. After consulting with the client it was agreed that our team would attend site to carry out a full risk analysis and inspection of the current storage and handling procedures on the Forgeway Ltd site. Read below how Chemstore enabled the client to successfully solve the issues with flammable liquid storage on site:

Our solution

“Chemstore worked with our client Forgeway Ltd. to identify and carry out a site risk analysis of their storage equipment and handling methods for their highly flammable liquids. The Chemstore Engineer, Mike Brodie, was able to understand the client’s requirements and identify their immediate high risk activities. Chemstore then specified and designed a bespoke, fire rated storage solution for the hazardous materials.

The bespoke unit was designed with segregated compartments to allow heating and temperature control in one compartment and the other section of the store to safely remain at ambient temperature. The Firevault was delivered to site on time and installed by Chemstore using an extended crane. This enabled Forgeway to greatly reduce the risks on site relating to their use of highly hazardous flammable liquids and remain compliant with DSEAR regulations, HSE guidelines and all legal and insurance requirements.”
