Update Released for SAFER Systems’ Advanced Scenario Modeling Software SAFER® TRACE


SAFER Systems, the leader in chemical emergency response, has released today the latest iteration, version 10.2, of its advanced consequence analysis software, SAFER TRACE®.  SAFER TRACE® is engineering grade software used by industrial professionals and risk managers around the world to help assess, understand and reduce chemical risk, and plan for worst case scenarios.  The 10.2 version of SAFER TRACE® contains several new features, enhancements to existing capabilities, streamlined workflows, and bug fixes.

Key among the new features and enhancements, driven by customer interest and historical events are improved vapor cloud explosion modeling for materials such as Ethylene Oxide, and solid chemical explosion modeling capability for materials such as Ammonium Nitrate, and commercial explosives like TNT.

“The improved and enhanced functionality afforded by the improvements that Dr. Shah Khajehnajafi, chief scientist at SAFER Systems, and his team have provided in explosion modeling greatly enhance our site building and explosion hazard safety analysis capability, help improve our customers’ pre-planning efforts where risks exist, help identify and pre-plan evacuation zones and routes as well as safe collection points, and can elevate awareness of the urgency and scale of response required when such threats are identified or developing,“ said Bob Gerow, business manager for Canada at SAFER Systems.

Further enhancing our customer’s capabilities, Exfiltration Modeling, has been added to SAFER TRACE® v10.2.  Exfiltration modeling allows plans to be created for indoor accidental releases and can calculate how long the toxicity is expected to remain at harmful levels throughout an indoor chemical release event.  This model takes into consideration the room size, temperature, and ventilation type and rate to determine the toxic or explosive concentration as well as the exposure curve from point of release to end of event where safe levels are reached.
