SAFER TRACE® (Toxic Release Analysis of Chemical Emissions) is our state-of-the-art hazard assessment tool
One of the challenges of managing a chemical facility is the ongoing need for process safety improvements. Plants are continually required to revalidate major incident assessments and, as plants age, standards of compliance tighten. Shareholders expect efficient and cost-effective maintenance but traditional Process Hazard Analysis studies are costly and time intensive.
SAFER TRACE® is a set of consequence assessment solutions that allow rapid visualization of a potential failure involving airborne hazardous material. It allows engineers to study how incremental mitigation techniques may improve safety and help them focus on what must be put in place to mitigate the hazard. This, in turn, helps assess the value and need to conduct an intensive process hazard analysis.
SAFER TRACE® incorporates an intelligent wizard feature that allows the user to easily and rapidly describe a scenario. Once processed, results can be viewed in tabular or graphical formats. Output information can be exported to other applications like word processors, spreadsheets and presentation managers.
- Superior Screening solution for Process Hazards Analysis
- Meeting Regulatory Requirements
- Useful for sensitivity studies and facility siting work
- Integrated modeling suite for emissions, explosions, fire, and particulate events
- Great for updating or verifying EPA Risk Management Program studies
Highly flexible, SAFER TRACE® can be used in a wide variety of applications, including:
- Accidental Release Modeling
- Hazards Identification
- Risk Management Planning
- Human Response Modeling
- Regulatory Modeling Requirements
- Evaluation of Mitigation Systems
- Population Exposure Assessment
- Worst-Case/Alternative Scenario Studies
- Project Management
Each review of equipment or process area can be managed as separate projects in SAFER TRACE®. Users can keep things organized by making backups, recalling of specific work, and passing work to others to use later. These features are particularly useful for compliance with RMP work.
- Comprehensive Chemical Database
The product includes a chemical database that covers most of the chemicals used in Industry. SAFER TRACE® enables engineers to define over 600 pure component substances as well as liquid mixtures. Users can easily define percentages for oleums, aqueous ammonia, and other gaseous chemical solutions such as hydrocarbon mixtures for modeling purposes.
- Simple to use Wizard system makes building scenarios fast
Each type of event has certain characteristics that can be useful in defining a scenario. SAFER TRACE® includes a sequential process that queries the user and leads to the right set of models to solve the problem.
- Detailed text and graphical reports
Getting the right result is not useful if you don't have the ability to describe the result in a meaningful way. SAFER TRACE® includes a wide array of text reports, graphs, and the ability to overlay the result on map or aerial photograph.
