The US EPA has implemented a risk management program for prevention of accidental chemical releases. Certain releases can occur in the gas phase, such as gas cylinders used for a wide variety of processes. Accidental rapid leakage of certain gases can cause an immediate danger to life and health (IDLH).

As a result, Gas Cylinder storage areas are increasingly being outfitted with emergency gas scrubbing or adsorption systems to contain releases and reduce catastrophic or life threatening releases. These systems protect human health and are often specified at facilities that contain Chlorine, Ammonia, Sulfur Dioxide, Hydrogen Sulfide, or other potentially dangerous vaporous chemicals.

KCH Emergency Gas Release Systems can be designed as wet Chemical Scrubbers or dry media Carbon Adsorbers, depending on various factors such as the type and volume of gas to be adsorbed or neutralized.

Typical applications requiring an emergency gas release system are:

Ammonia Storage Facilities - Refridgeration Facilities, Ice Rinks, Cold Storage
Chlorine Storage Facilities - Waste Water Treatment Plants
Hydrogen Sulfide Cylinders - Corrosion Testing Facilities
Sulfur Dioxide Cylinders - Corrosion Testing Facilities

Due to the corrosive nature of the gas release, KCH vessels are manufactured from 100% Corrosion resistant materials such as FRP or PVC. For outdoor applications, KCH also recommends Polystrong® or Polylast® materials of construction when UV protection and structural rigidity are needed.

Each system can be skid mounted equipped with the following:

KCH Exhaust Fans Ducting
Dampers Differential Pressure Gauges
Automatic Controls Access Ladders
Dust Filters to prevent media blinding Media sample ports
polystrong firesist
