The Uniform Fire Code (UFC) requires that areas holding certain toxic, hazardous or explosive compounds be provided with a continuous exhaust and that an emission control system be installed to treat any accidental releases. Generally the releases must be controlled to a level less than half of the published Immediately Dangerous to Health and Life (IDHL) levels set by OSHA or other government agencies. The rules can be complex and are not limited only to storage areas, but also apply to quantities "in use" within the process area.

Advanced Air Technologies specializes in the design of emission controls that meet these requirements. Often we can combine the necessary emergency requirements with modifications to the process scrubber, thereby saving purchase of additional equipment. AAT emergency systems respond to the release automatically.

We provide each customer with an analysis of their needs. We offer several solutions based on your inventory, local regulations, plant locations and various other factors. Our experience in designing dozens of emergency scrubbers for many different chemicals will provide you with the assurance that an accident will be safely handled with minimal impact on the environment.
