Process Safety:  From Concept to Commissioning

Process safety is an essential component in all phases of project design, from initial research and development to commercial process design.  During research and development efforts, a process safety review can help to identify the hazards associated with the planned chemistry and initiate the investigation of inherently safer chemistry.  As the project progresses into the piloting stage, experiments can be designed to identify potential process upsets and generate data to facilitate the design of relief systems and Safety Instrumented Systems (SIS) as well as determine the optimum vessel design conditions that can eliminate or mitigate as many potential relief scenarios as possible in the commercial facility.  The information generated in the pilot plant will feed into the process safety effort during the engineering design of the commercial facility, allowing critical design decisions to be made early in the project to ensure the optimum utilization of inherently safer design, relief systems and effluent handling, and Safety Instrumented Systems in the final design.
