COURSE DESIGN AND OBJECTIVES

Attendees will learn how to conduct risk analysis of reactive systems to ensure safety prior to process operations and how to interpret the results of preliminary screening tests through the use of chemical engineering concepts relating to safe plant operation. The course will discuss characterization of thermal runaway reaction through calorimetry methods and the latest techniques for process optimization.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND

The course will benefit attendees from a broad spectrum of backgrounds and job responsibilities including chemical engineers, process engineers/scientists, plant/process safety/risk managers, facilities managers and others who need to understand the risks and hazards that can lead to accidents, injuries, property damage and business interruptions to the plant. Those who review technical reports on relief sizing for runaway reactions will gain a basic understanding of the data to enable competent review.

CEUs: 0.6
