Albert allows you to track and manage storage compatibility to ensure chemicals are always stored in safe conditions. If you try to store unsafe chemical combinations, you will be prompted with a warning message that educates you on the potential risk. The storage compatibility matrix shows you all the warning messages that are possible and which storage class combinations will lead to these warnings.
Storage Compatibility Matrix Overview
The storage compatibility matrix shows the hazards associated with combining chemicals with certain storage classes (view Storage Class Logic for information on how storage classes are assigned to chemicals).
There are 3 tiers of warnings:
- Y (green) - storage compatibility is allowed and there are no hazards with this storage.
- W (yellow) - storage compatibility is only allowed under certain conditions. There are 7 warning messages, all with different criteria. For more information on the joint storage warnings, please review pg. 24-27 TRGS 510 Storage of hazardous substances in nonstationary containers (asecos.com)
- N (red) - storage compatibility is NOT allowed.
To see more details on these alert messages, you can click on any cell in the matrix to view the warning message - this same message will appear if you try to store chemicals of these storage classes together.
