Chemical storage and handling is characterized by highly sensitive processes. Process safety and hazardous material management therefore have top priority in the chemical industry.

Chemical products often have to undergo their maturing process within a specific temperature range before they can process further. Humidity plays a role as well as explosion protection or the type of extinguishing equipment. In some cases, it is necessary to implement clean room conditions. This applies to dust-free buffer and interim storage facilities. Flammable, combustible, and corrosive substances and preliminary products also require special attention.

With this in mind, it is clear that the planning, construction, and maintenance for intralogistics solutions in the chemical sector require a specific know-how. Kardex fits this requirement. We have extensive experience with the chemical industry guidelines including handling dangerous goods, distributing according to ADR regulations, and storing articles and raw materials in line with defined storage classes.

The efficient storage and supply of chemical products require an automated solution to ensure process reliability, batch tracing, and hazardous material management. Automated storage solutions also optimize available space and enable fast and reliable order picking - even for a wide range of items and raw materials.

Multiple factors play a central role in chemical production including humidity levels, controlling temperatures in various temperature zones, and fire and explosion protection. Kardex offers diverse storage solutions for controlled conditions.

Kardex's software solutions ensure complete and reliable traceability for individual production batches - a crucial factor when working within the chemical industry.

Kardex units feature special anti-explosion protection mechanisms to prevent flash fires and explosions in highly-flammable gas emission locations. If a dangerous situation occurs, the storage unit floods with explosion-resistant gases. Additional preventive measures include using non-arcing motors and low-friction trays.
