Industrial chemical machinery and equipment is used in a variety of industries to produce chemicals and other materials. The most common type of industrial chemical machinery is the reaction vessel, which is used to mix and react substances to create new products. Reactors can be either batch or continuous, meaning they can either be operated in batches or continuously. Industrial chemical machinery also includes other types of equipment, such as distillation columns, separators, and evaporators.
Chemical machinery and equipment can be incredibly dangerous if not used correctly. In fact, according to the U.S. Department of Labor, there were over 3,000 injuries caused by chemical machinery in 2016. This number is likely much higher, as many of these injuries go unreported.
There are many different types of injuries that can occur when working with industrial chemicals and machinery. The most common type of injury is a chemical burn, which can happen if you come into contact with a hazardous substance. Other injuries include skin irritations, respiratory problems, and eye damage. To avoid these injuries, it’s important to always wear the proper safety gear and to follow all safety procedures.
If you have been injured by chemical machinery or equipment, you may be entitled to compensation. Contact an experienced attorney to evaluate your case and determine if you have a valid claim. You may be able to recover damages for your medical expenses, lost wages, and pain and suffering.
