SAFE HANDLING of Aerosol PROPELLANTS training – 15th July 2021

This course aims to provide delegates with knowledge of the issues surrounding handling of flammable propellants and provide practical examples of how this applies to an aerosol filling line (from the point at which the propellant enters the factory from the tank farm). It then focuses on the safe operation and maintenance of the propellant storage and delivery pipes, and the aerosol filling lines (it does not cover the design, construction and modification of the plant).

The Course Content:

Properties of common flammable aerosol propellants
Common causes of fire, and how to eliminate them in an aerosol factory
Classification of hazardous zones in an aerosol factory, the propellant tank farm and propellant delivery, storage and transfer
The gassing room and gas detection and safety
Propellant change-over
Machine settings, danger of leaking cans and static electricity, and hot water bath testing
Preventative measures – “Prevention is Better than Cure” – how your behaviour can affect your safety
The course will conclude with a test of your knowledge.

Who should attend?

The course is designed for operations and maintenance staff from aerosol filling plants, their line managers, or anyone who needs to have a practical knowledge of the safe handling of aerosol propellants in the plant.
