What is the Hazcalc HAC software?
- Hazcalc is a very useful software platform for assessing hazardous areas of flammable gases, vapors and liquids, in relation to explosion safety.test
- Hazacalc was developed during practicing consultancy work in a wide variety of sectors, e.g. oil and gas, pharma, hydrogen installations, biogas installations, waste treatment installations etc.
- Hazcalc is fully compliant with IEC Standard 60079-10-1, both 2015 and 2020 version are available within the software.
- It's an intuïtive and user friendly tool which guides the user through the process of area classification. Extensive knowledge of the standard is not needed to peform the assessments, due to the incorporated help function.
During consultancy work we noticed that a standard way of assessing and calulating hazardous areas, based on IEC 60079-10-1 standard, would save a lot of time and effort. After first working with an Excel worksheet, we came to more reliable tools and finally we came to the point that we realised ourselves: why not sharing this useful tool with others?
We decided to develop a web-based platform where users can assess potentially hazardous areas in an easy and controlled way. With an extensive integrated help function, availability of examples and a downloadable user manual and online tutorials, Hazcalc can be used quite easy.
