On-Demand: Identifying the Risk of a Runaway Reaction
The development of safe chemical processes is essential to any chemical manufacturing company as runaway reactions can cause major incidents with harm to personnel, plant, environment and business reputation.
Runaway reactions incidents still happen in industry and the impact of an exothermic event tends to be dramatic (i.e. Bhopal, Seveso, T2 Laboratories, etc.) and can often leave an indelible mark on the reputation of the operating companies involved.
In this webinar, we will guide you through the various experimental techniques to obtain valuable and scalable data with respect to thermal stability hazards.
What you’ll learn:
- How and why chemical reactions and material reactivity are critical elements of safe processing, and how exothermic reactions poses the biggest risk.
- How to identify, assess, and characterise both intended and, more importantly, unintended exothermic reactions to ensure the safe scale-up and operation of a chemical process.
- Benefits of partnering with specialists at Sigma-HSE to create bespoke/customised CRH testing conditions to match your process operation and prove your safety case.
This webinar is best for:
- Technical Manager
- HSE/EHS Manager
- Chemical Engineer
- Process Engineer
- Development/Process Chemist
