Propane, LPG and Natural Gas Tech Brief
Release Date: 8/4/2016
Learn How to Better Respond to These Dangerous Substances!!!
Thank you for your interest in our ‘Propane, LPG and Natural Gas Tech Brief’ prepared by the experts and engineers at AristaTek, Inc. Our company was founded by experts in the fields of chemistry and hazardous materials, and we have been developing software solutions and expert commentary for responders and planners dealing with hazardous materials for nearly 20 years. This brief was prepared in response to multiple BLEVEs (Boiling Liquid Expanding Vapor Explosion) involving these substances reported around the country this summer. These substances are extremely common, but BLEVEs involving these substances can be extremely dangerous to responders and the public.
This past May, two firefighters in Detroit were injured fighting a fire when a propane tank exploded. In another event in late June, a natural gas plant explosion in Mississippi gave off vibrations that could be felt over 10 miles away. Thankfully there were no injuries in that event. This brief is intended to help planners and responders understand these substances and stand-off distances for BLEVEs to assure they are better prepared to protect their communities.

PLEASE NOTE: This brief is not available for immediate download. While it helps address questions regarding incidents involving Propane, LPG and natural gas, communities face many other threats from hazardous materials and WMD. This brief will be delivered in conjunction with an online presentation given by a member of the AristaTek team. A member of the AristaTek team will contact you to set up this meeting. The purpose of the meeting is to add context to the brief and also demonstrate how PEAC-WMD, our flagship product, may be used to help model the public safety consequences of other chemical, explosive, and radiological hazards in your community. After the online meeting, the brief will be delivered to you via email in a PDF format.
