Cannabis processing continues to evolve, allowing manufacturers to provide better and more consistent quality products. The processing of cannabis requires the use of hazardous materials. Within the cannabis and hemp industry, these are typically solvents, ethanol, and butane. Which can be potentially dangerous.
At Cannabis Engineering & Compliance, we offer C1D1 and C1D2 extraction lab engineering services and support. Our team of engineers will ensure all your processes and practices fall within the given National Electrical Code (NEC) guidelines for the use of potentially flammable gases, designated Class 1, or dust, designed under Class 2. The Division (D) designation can either be D1, where “ignitable concentrations of flammable gases or vapors frequently exist,” or D2, where these gases are present but contained except in accidental rupture or abnormal operations
In general, C1D2 and C1C1 extraction lab engineering is essential for both the safety of workers and compliance requirements. Cannabis extraction facilities are closely monitored in all states. The correct classification as to C1D1 or C1D2 is critical to ensure the correct classification and safety measures are in place.
Our team specializing in C1D1 and C1D2 extraction lab engineering will work with your facility staff to establish the required safety features needed for different types of processing or different processing options. This includes the proper setup of equipment that must be isolated or separated from other equipment, which may require the construction of one or more separate rooms or locations.
