    Container Evaluation 

    Clean Harbors has standard operating procedures for the proper identification and evaluation of shock-sensitive, peroxidizable and unknown reactive materials. We follow strict evaluation criteria including age, storage conditions, exposure, contamination and stability.

    Chemical Stabilization 

    Clean Harbors understands the disadvantages of controlled detonation and has developed sound chemical stabilization techniques that enable us to manage the following types of potentially unstable materials (along with others on a case-by-case basis):

    • Peroxide-forming compounds 
    • Temperature-sensitive compounds 
    • Organic peroxides 
    • Shock-sensitive compounds 
    • Multi-nitrated compounds 
    • Azides

    Remote Container Opening Procedures 

    Our Reactive Material specialists take every precaution and limit the handling of hazardous and potentially unstable materials. We use specially designed equipment for all reactive remediation and stabilization projects, including pneumatically driven machinery that can remotely open a container.

    Engineering Controls and Personal Protective Equipment 

    Our state-of-the-art engineering controls include devices such as:

    • Trailer-mounted blast deflection units
    • Portable remote openers with bomb blanket and safety circle
    • Custom-designed remote drum openers

    Unknown Compound Fingerprint Analysis

    Our CleanPack® chemists provide fingerprint analysis for unknown compounds within lab pack-sized containers provided that the materials pass our safety evaluation. If these materials fail the evaluation and are suspected to be shock-sensitive, unstable or reactive, they must be remotely opened and tested before packaging.
