Remote Opening

The challenge as we see it

Each unstable chemical handling situation is unique, so customers with a wide range of potentially reactive materials need specialized services where routine handling would be unsafe.

Our differentiated value 

Our first priority is to ensure the safety and security of person and property. Our technical specialists are dispatched to your location where they follow strict internal procedures and adhere to the specific requirements of your site. We are experienced with stabilization and treatment techniques of reactive materials with potentially dangerous properties and carefully operate within applicable regulations.

Meticulous planning at the beginning of any project assures that all details are considered, which provides the best possible outcome and minimizes the impact on activities at your facility.

Examples of materials that we open remotely include:

  • Explosive chemicals
  • Organic peroxides
  • Peroxide formers
  • Pressurized containers
  • Shock sensitive materials
  • DOT forbidden materials
  • Temperature sensitive chemicals
  • Unstable materials

We will work with you to develop the best strategy to manage your materials based on the specific needs of your organization.

Our solutions for remote opening

Our trained technicians use state-of-the-art handling equipment to protect themselves and your interests when we manage potentially unstable chemicals at your site. To enhance safety, chemical containers are often transported in a special containment vessel to the selected remote opening locations.

After the reactive compound containers have been successfully opened, our team has extensive experience in stabilizing them with a variety of chemical processes including: 

  • Acid/base neutralization
  • Oxidation/reduction
  • Hydrolysis
  • Dilution

We make sure all materials are stabilized before extreme hazards are eliminated, packaged and transported.
