Hazards in Distillation Processes


Distilleries can be hazardous areas due to the flammable nature of the raw materials and the final product. Initially, the malt grain brought in for milling can create flammable dust clouds, and when the spirits are finally produced, the ethanol solutions are highly flammable. Explosive ethanol vapour might also escape from tanks, casks or transfer pumps, creating hazardous areas where care must be taken to ensure safe working environments.

Chalmit's explosion proof and flameproof luminaires are ideal for any distillery application. With ATEX and IECEx certifications, our lighting solutions ensure hazardous areas remain illuminated and safe.

Beverage Distillation in the UK

Distilled beverages are responsible for a significant share of UK domestic and international trade. Scotch whisky accounts for around 20% of all UK food and drink exports, meaning 41 bottles were shipped out of the country each second in 2018. Due to the current gin boom, the value of gin sold by manufacturers in the UK was almost doubled between 2009 and 2015, and more than 66 million bottles of gin were sold in the UK during 2018!
