Prevention of process industry explosions

 

Explosions in the process industries injure or kill hundreds if not thousands of workers every year.  They occur in process plants, refineries, platforms and pipelines all over the world.  Millions of dollars are spent repairing damages, replacing equipment and rebuilding facilities in the wake of this destruction.  The loss of human life adds another dimension to these tragedies.  This book explores different types of explosions that can occur in a facility and the necessary steps to guard against them.  A clear set of preventative measures, rules and standards combine to make this book a convenient guide to real-world applications.  Additional theoretical issues in the use of probabalistic equations and scenarios make this book an absolute neccesity for process industry safety. 

 

Contents:

Gas and Vapor Cloud Explosions; Explosions in Clouds of Liquid Droplets in Air (Spray/Mist); Gas and Dust Explosions Caused by Smoldering Combustion in Powder Layers and Deposits; Dust Explosions; Explosive, Pyrotechnics and Propellants; Design of Electrical Apparatuses for Hazardous Areas; and Outline of Methods for Hazard and Risk Analysis.
