How Does Process Mercury Affect Safety?
Mercury and its compounds are simultaneously toxic, persistent, and accumulative in the environment. And in hydrocarbon processing mercury presents risks to workers, process and the environment which requires an understanding of mercury speciation and distribution in process to develop appropriate plans and procedures. Exposure risks may sometimes be underestimated due to the physiochemical properties of mercury and limitations of certain instruments used for occupational exposure monitoring.
ISCT understands these limitations and provides process mercury safety and environmental solutions to the oil and gas industry and integrate process mercury concentration data into comprehensive safety and management plans that increase safety performance and operational efficiency of assets. By understanding the toxicological and physiochemical properties of mercury and forecasting possible exposure pathways we help our clients better protect their personnel and the environment.
We provide our customers with accurate, reliable and defensible data; maximizing and protecting the integrity of your assets throughout their lifecycle.
