In pharmaceutical factories, a lot of dangerous chemicals are used as raw and auxiliary materials, such as, methyl alcohol, ethyl alcohol, acetone and concentrated hydrochloric acid. These are flammable and corrosive materials. Furthermore, heating, cooling and pressurizing processes during the production are sources of hazards which shall cause fire, explosion, poisoning and asphyxia.

1. Fire

Fire is a major threat to bulk drug factories. Hazards usually exist in following circumstances:
1.1 Flammable and explosive substances like ethyl alcohol, acetone and methyl alcohol are widely used in the synthesis and production of bulk drugs. These chemicals have low flash points and are volatile. With the presence of flame or static electricity, they may lead to fire disasters.

1.2 Overload and overheat due to aging or short-circuit of equipment may cause fire disasters easily.

2. Explosions
Explosions could bring serious dangers to pharmaceutical factories. When the volatilized combustible substances mixes with the air to form an explosives level above LEL, fire or static electricity can cause chemical explosions. For example, liquefied petroleum gas or propane is used for the potting process in small-volume injection workshops. Their concentration in the air between 1.5% and 9.5% is considered as the explosion range.

3. Asphyxia

When the Oxygen level is lower than 17% in certain confined spaces, personnel who enter these confined places shall suffer dizziness, nausea, coma or even death. And long exposure to ethyl alcohol, acetone or ether of high concentration will also lead to coma.

Therefore, a gas and fire monitoring system should be installed in pharmaceutical factories as the defensive line to enhance personnel safety and protect equipment from damages.
