Elements of Process Safety
The four pillars and the twenty elements of risk based process safety can be designed and implemented at varying levels of rigor to optimize process safety management, performance, efficiency, and effectiveness.
This webinar addresses the principle of flammability of vapor/air mixtures, including flammability limits, ignition temperatures, the effect of inerts and how to determine the flammability of any particular mixture.
This webinar presents an introduction to how industry handles reactive chemical hazards, and provides resource material to teach this subject in an existing course in chemical engineering.
Catastrophic dust explosions in 2003 and 2008 have placed an increased emphasis on the prevention and mitigation of dust explosions.
Performing hazard analyses are critical to safe operation in any chemically based operation or experiment. Often, engineers are approached with proposals for chemicals that have not been used in a company or research group previously.
