Join us for an overview of methods to identify primary risk factors for a runaway chemical reaction, and effectively designing emergency relief systems when these risk factors exist. During this informative presentation, we will discuss:
Basic thermodynamic and temperature based kinetic principles involved in runaway chemical reactions.
Common laboratory tests performed to screen for, and characterize runaway reaction potential, and the need to consider two-phase flow conditions in a relief stream.
Basic methods used for emergency relief of runaway chemical reactions
Performing relief design calculations using the guidance from the AIChE’s Design Institute for Emergency Relief Systems (DIERS), the most common Relevant Good Practice (RGP) and Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practice (RAGAGEP) for reactive chemistry relief design.
Establishing an effective partnership to efficiently design reactive relief systems.
