Hazardous Substances in Refineries (BP Process Safety) - by Bp Safety Group

By Bp Safety Group

On best of all hydrocarbons, nitrogen, hydrogen sulphide, hydrogen fluoride, and lots of different harmful chemical substances are dealt with often in refineries. touch with those can turn out deadly in a question of seconds. This publication goals to proportion wisdom and enhance the certainty at the simple rules for secure dealing with of the most unsafe chemical items present in refineries. a good creation to the subject for students.

Produced by means of BP and recommended via IChemE's Loss Prevention Panel, those books have been constructed to counterpoint protection education. they're perfect reference instruments in the place of work, expanding understanding of dangers and aiding operators to appreciate secure working practices and techniques.

Always add the caustic to water, with slow and constant stirring. Check that the caustic is completely dissolved before adding more. 7 Acids ACIDS Hazard Data Acids are considered hazardous because they are corrosive and can react with other substances evolving large amounts of heat. Their hazard ratings are largely dependent upon their concentrations. Highly concentrated acid solutions are more hazardous because they can react more violently with other chemicals such as alkalis and bases, and attack materials such as metals and living tissue more aggressively.

A propane dryer had been purged with nitrogen for seven days, and several hydrogen sulphide and hydrogen tests were done before a work permit was issued to remove valves from the skid. A slight nitrogen purge was on the equipment to prevent air from entering, and preventing possible ignition of pyrophoric material in the dryer. On the day of the incident, an employee and a boilermaker had removed one valve without problems. While they were working on a second valve, the employee slumped to one side.

Despite attempts at resuscitation, the other men both died. The lack of compliance to the site procedure was a key factor in this incident. A permit-to-work should have been issued stipulating the use of positive pressure breathing apparatus for work where there is a possibility of H2S release. All reasonably practicable measures should have been taken to eliminate the risk of exposure, for example, by a properly thought out program of isolation followed by drainage and purging. 6 ft) pit. Coupled with the release of H2S, the atmosphere inside the confined space became lethal (hydrogen sulphide is denser than air and will collect in lowlying areas).
