Preventing Reaction Runaway: CRH & Safe Scale-Up Training
The loss of control of exothermic or gas generating chemical reactions, on plant scale, can have devastating primary and secondary consequences. Strategic assessment practices should be embedded to ensure that chemical reaction hazards are identified early in process development by chemists with a good understanding of risk identification such that the development process seeks to systematically and reliably eliminate or reduce the risk potential.
- Equip chemists with tools to identify and quantify process safety risks – and hence make decisions which promote inherently safer processes.
- Provide chemists and engineers with a systematic assessment process and knowledge to identify appropriate testing strategies.
- Enable chemists and engineers to understand calorimetric and thermal stability data interpretation and application.
- Gain awareness of safety measures available for safe scale-up, including relief system design concepts.
