Toxic Release Analysis of Chemical Emissions is our state-of-the-art process hazard analysis tool.
is a set of consequence assessment solutions that allow rapid visualization of a potential failure involving airborne hazardous material. It allows engineers to study how incremental mitigation techniques may improve safety and help them focus on what must be put in place to mitigate the hazard. This, in turn, helps assess the value and need to conduct an intensive process hazard analysis.
One of the challenges of managing a chemical facility is the ongoing need for process safety improvements. Plants are continually required to revalidate major incident assessments and, as plants age, standards of compliance tighten. Process hazard analysis (PHA) is the core of any process safety management program. TRACE with its powerful and comprehensive algorithms is a valuable tool for any types of PHA studies. TRACE is mentioned by EPA as a software tool suitable for RMP reports.
SAFER TRACE™ incorporates an intelligent wizard feature that allows the user to easily and rapidly build a scenario, create backs up and share scenarios with other users. Results can be viewed in tabular or graphical formats. Output information can be exported to other applications like word processors, spreadsheets and presentation managers, and Google Earth. Great for updating or verifying EPA Risk Management Program studies.
SAFER TRACE™ includes a chemical database with over 600 pure components that covers most of the chemicals used in Industry. SAFER TRACE™ enables engineers to create gaseous or liquid mixtures. The liquid mixture model includes popular equation of state models (Peng Robinson, Soave, Redlick-Kwong for hydrocarbon mixtures and Antoine, and Wilson for non- ideal solution. TRACE algorithms cover the ground based or elevated release of dense and non-dense gaseous releases. It can handle vapor/gas or vapor/aerosol streams for dispersion. The fire model includes pool fire, jet fire, fireball, and flashfire. The explosion model includes vessel burst, BLEVE, and unconfined vapor cloud explosion. TRACE allows user to create separate folders for each project allowing users to keep data and their case studies organized and segmented.
