  1. Applicability of Currently Available Flare Radiation Models for Hydrogen and Syngas

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The primary purpose of a flare model is to provide a reasonably accurate prediction of radiant heat flux at any point of interest around the flame, in order to define safe release locations. In order to do this, a good flare model needs to provide reasonably accurate prediction of the following...

  2. The Past, Present and Future of LNG

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    In one decade, the gas prospects in North America have gone from dire to exceptional. In 2004, we were scrambling to build import capacity for gas as LNG. In 2014, we are scrambling to do the opposite - build export infrastructure for LNG. The shale gas revolution has led to a resurgence in...

  4. The PHA-MOC Interaction - Getting the Best out of Both Processes

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The PHA-MOC Interaction – Getting the Best Out of Both Processes Rainer Hoff, Ph.D., P.Eng. President Gateway Consulting Group, Inc. Paul A. Gathright Global PSM Capability Manager Invista, S.à.r.l. The safety community, bolstered by the PSM regulations, has emphasized the importance of proper...

  5. PM2.5 Modeling Challenges

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Air Dispersion Modeling is usually required to demonstrate compliance with the Ambient Air Quality Standards for PM 2.5 in support of an air permit application. These standards are difficult to meet, and the modeling evaluation can quickly become very complicated. This document and the...

  6. New Approaches for Turn Around Planning in Petrochemical Plants

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    Well thought out approaches and planning, prior to execution, yield significant pay-outs on large scale turnarounds. In this paper, the author will discuss successful strategies to turnaround planning in petrochemical plants and explain why attention to detail can result in increased safety, on-...

  7. Hydrogen Ignitions - Wildly Differing Opinions, and Reasons Why Everyone Could Be Right

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    In collecting background material for the recent CCPS book “Guidelines for Determining the Probability of Ignition of a Released Flammable Mass”, the wide variability of experiences, opinion and data on the topic of ignition probabilities of hydrogen releases was striking. This discord was apparent...

  8. Performing Data Analysis Of a Company's Global Process Safety Events

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    This presentation covers a process used to determine common themes from the analysis of all Process Safety Events from a company's global manufacturing operations across 50 sites. The process covers identification of all Process Safety events, selection criteria for those to be analysed in greater...

  9. The Effect of Trip Throttle Valve Pressure Loss on Steam Turbine Performance

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    The pressure loss of the inlet trip throttle valve affects the performance of the high pressure (HP) section of a controlled extraction condensing steam turbine. Optimizing the selection of the size of the trip throttle valve for a specific application will reduce the overall inlet throttling loss...

  10. Flameless Combustion Technology for Reduced NOx Emissions in Ethylene Furnaces

    ChemE On Demand Presentation (AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety, 2014)

    As environmental regulations are tightening, flameless burner technology is implemented as a viable solution for many petrochemical and refining furnaces that require lower NOx emissions. Ethylene furnaces have proved to be some of the most difficult targets for NOx emissions reduction due to...
