(AFFF) Aqueous Filling Forming Foam - EngineeriSafety

Aqueous Filling Forming Foam (AFFF)AFFF Aqueous Filling Forming Foam contain fluorinated synthetic hydrocarbons with additional capacity even other form concentrates, of forming water solution films on the surface of inflammable liquids. These are used in concentration of 1% to 3% in water to make foam solution. This type of foams can we use on deep-seated Fires involving class 'A' and class 'B' materials.

Aqueous Filling Forming Foam (AFFF) of hydrocarbons and fluorocarbon surfactants to produce synthetic Firefighting foams for use as high-performance, non-polar, class B hydrocarbon fuels such as crude oil, petroleum, diesel, and aviation fuel.  Is prepared with.

Aqueous Filling Forming Foam Concentrate These concentrations can be applied with a variety of proportional and discharge devices and suppress fires through three mechanisms:
Separating liquid fuel from air,Helping to prevent vapor release,Providing a cooling effect.      With a wide spectrum of third party ap…

(NRV) Non-Return Valves | Check Valves - Symbol, Types and Importance

(NRV) Non Return Valve
A Non- Return Valves, check valve, clack valve, non- return valves, reflux valve, retention valve or one-way valve is a valve that normally allows fluid (liquid or gas) to flow through it in one direction only.

Non  - Return valve/ Check valve are two-port valves, meaning that they have two openings in the body, one to enter the fluid and the other to release the liquid.

Types of (NRV) Non - Return Valves There are various types of check valves/non-return valve used in a wide variety of applications.  Non- return valves are often part of common household items.  
Although they are available in a wide range of sizes and costs, Non - Return valve are generally very small, simple or inexpensive. Non - Return valve operate automatically and most are not controlled by an individual or any external control;  Accordingly, most have no valve handle or stem. The bodies (outer shells) of most  Non - Return valve/check valves are made of plastic or metal. Importance Concep…

What NFPA 704/ NFPA Diamond ?    The widely recognizable NFPA - 704/ NFPA Diamond is a type of safety signal that emergency responders use to quickly identify hazards posed by hazardous materials.  This signal, along with the meaning of its colors and numbers, is part of a larger standard created by the NFPA. What is the Aim of NFPA ?    As part of the greater outreach program, the NFPA sponsors Fire Prevention Week every year.  The goal of this national program is to increase fire and electrical safety awareness by highlighting a specific safety th…

What is FMB ? | Foam Making Branches - EngineeriSafety

Foam Making Branches (FMB)
   Today we will discuss,what is (FMB) Foam Making Branches. Foam Making Branches are basically used by fire fighters.
What is (FMB) Foam Making Branches ?
   Foam-making branches provide a means for the production of mechanical foam, which is used to Fire-fighting in flammable liquids.
   Similarly, mechanical foam is also used to cover flammable liquid spills to prevent ignition.  These branches operate on the self-aspirating principle in which air is driven into a stream of water-foam solution by the suction effect created at the head of the water in the branch during the discharge of the solution under pressure.

How Accidents are Measures as per Indian and International Standard in Industry

How Accidents are Measures as per Indian and International Standard ?
To Measure an Accidents as per Indian and International Standard in Industries - to men statistical have been used together accident information the frequency rate and severity rate.
The frequency rate is the number of time lost accident orangeries which have disable and employee per 1,000,000 man hours worked. The severity rate on the other hand is the total number of days charge for lost because of accidents per 1,000,000 hours worked. 
Formula to Measure Accidents as per Indian and International Standard : The national safety Council of the United States has given the following formulas for the computation of these rates.
Formula: Accidents Frequency Rate = ( Number of Disabling work injuries / Total numbers of man-hours worked ) x 1,000,000
Severity Rate = ( Number of man days lost / Total numbers of man-hours worked ) x 1,000,000
Numerical Example:
Using the following data calculate the frequency rate of accident…

Good Housekeeping Cleaning Tips

Good Housekeeping Cleaning TipsPlan a good housekeeping program-    A a a good housekeeping program plans and manages the orderly storage and movement of materials from point of entry to exit. It includes a material flow plan to ensure minimum handling. The plan also and shows that work areas are not used as storage area by having workers move materials to and from work areas as needed  Part of the plan would include investing in extra bins and more frequent disposal.

   The cost of this investment could be offset by the elimination of repeated handling of the same material and more effective use of the workers time. Often, ineffective or insufficient storage planning results in materials being handled and stored in hazardous waste. Knowing the plant layout and the moment of materials throughout the workplace can help plan work procedure.

HAZOP Analysis | Hazards and Operability Review

INTRODUCTION OF HAZOP: HAZOP is an analysis method that was developed for use with new processes JO the chemical industry. Its strength is that it's hello problems to be identified even before a body of experience has been developed for a given process/system. Thoughts originally intended for use with new processes it need not to be limited to new operations.
HAZOPs works very well with odd process/systems. HAZOP consist of farming 18 of experience knowledgeable people from a variety of background relating to the process/system. The team members brainstorm about potential hazards. The health and safety professional should chair the team and serve as a facilitator. The chairman role is to draw out and record the ideas of team members; make sure that one member does not dominate for intermediate other members; Anchorage maximum participations from all members; assist members in combining ideas where appropriate to form better ideas.

What are the Electrical Safety tips on Construction Sites

Electrical Safety on Construction Sites: Electricity can cause great damage to both people working in the construction sites and property. 

Contact with the electric current can Trigger other accidents, like Falls from ladder for scaffolding. Electrical shocks for flashes can cause serious injuries such as burn. Electric shock may also cause the victim to stop breathing and nerve centres may be temporary paralysed. The Heartbeat may fluctuate for the heat Rhythm May actually be interrupted, thus causing a stop in the circulation of blood throughout the body apart. From human injuries like shocks, burns or falls, another major hazards is the situation in in in which an electrical fire or explosion may occur. Fire and explosion generally causes extensive property & equipment damage. Electrical fires often start when an overloaded circuit become overheated - igniting the insulation around the wires. If cords and cables a short circuit that could sparks a fire.
