Are Your Safeguards Fast Enough to Be Effective?
- Type: Conference Presentation
- Conference Type:
AIChE Spring Meeting and Global Congress on Process Safety
- Presentation Date:
March 29, 2017
- Expert judgement
- Mass and energy balance calculations
- First principles process modelling
Key technical issues in this evaluation include hardware response lags, process response lags, application program delays, measurement error, and the design and safety margins that should be applied. Careful attention to these details are needed from the process engineering, instrumentation and controls design team members, for if an instrumented safeguard performs too slowly compared to the hazardous event, it provides no protection at all.
