liquid gas

The Duck-Tec Brüterei GmbH uses on the premises of the Fläminger Entenspezialitäten GmbH & Co. KG uses several containers for liquid gas. The liquid gas is used as fuel for heating animal stables. The day-old chicks in the house have an increased heat requirement, which is generated by the combustion of liquid gas.

The liquid gas is led by individual pipelines from the tank into the animal stables and burned using suitable gas burners, whereby warmth develops. The containers themselves are located outside the stables.

We obtain fuel liquid gas from certified gas suppliers. They also carry out the prescribed external and internal inspections of the tanks, pipelines, and gas burners at prescribed intervals.

The areas in which our liquid gas containers are located are subject to the regulations of the Major Accidents Ordinance.

Duck-Tec works by certified management systems for basic quality testing (BQP) and quality and safety (QS). This includes the regular inspection of the liquid gas containers. Our basic idea is to avoid incidents by working safely in all areas of our activity. Therefore, we have taken all sustainable safety measures, which are set out in writing and known to the responsible authorities. The alarm and hazard prevention plan that has been drawn up has been coordinated with the competent authorities and fire brigades at the site. Contractual agreements exist for the implementation of preventive fire protection and operational hazard prevention.

The main substances relevant to incidents are:

Compound:                  Properties:
