‘Chemicals for paper production handled with care’ - .PDF file.

A paper mill had experienced a couple of ‘near misses’ on-site where unspecified hose had been used in an emergency situation — regardless of the chemicals going through the line — as it had a policy in place that a temporary engineering solution could be used in an emergency situation for up to 48 hours. It was found in the near-miss cases that the temporary hose had failed in minutes rather than hours and with health and safety a priority it asked Eriks Hose Technology to recommend a solution. After a full day with the engineering team it was suggested that a ultra-high molecular weight polyethylene (UHMWPE) hose would be the ideal choice to reduce the risk of accidents and potential chemical spill issues.
