Create a large database of short “seven minute seminars” that quickly inform a plant manager, engineer or operator about a specific piece of equipment. Much like the “Take Two… for Safety”, people are often willing to give up a guaranteed short amount of time for a cause. The videos will be broken down into two sections; The Mechanics, and The Science. The sections will talk about the mechanical parts and make up, and physical laws that apply and the relative chemical reactions that are happening within each part. These videos are meant to inform rather than transform, meaning, they are to be a reference for already somewhat knowledgeable people rather than a training source for people brand new to the industry. This database will help to eliminate simple mistakes caused by employees, which lead to mechanical failure and chemical release. Possible videos: Bellows valves, pilot-operated safety valves, rupture disks, pipes, reaction vessels, pumps, distillation column packing, filters, cone blenders, v blenders, cyclones, evaporators, condensers, shell and tube heat exchangers, plate heat exchangers, etc.
