Managing Process and Powder Handling Hazards Workshop
28th June 2013 - Mumbai, India
We invite you to attend our workshop " Managing Process and Powder Handling Hazards". The seminar, delivered by Intertek experts, is aimed at technicians, chemists, chemical engineers, plant managers and safety specialists who wish to understand the various hazards posed by static electricity, dust explosions, runaway reactions and how to investigate processes and unit operations for thermal hazards.
The thermal hazards associated with the chemical process industry can be encountered either during synthesis reaction (i.e. chemical process) or during one of the unit operations like distillation, drying and milling (i.e. Physical process) with supposedly no chemical reaction intended. The equipment and methodologies required to successfully investigate chemical processes for such hazards have been available for many years. In spite of this, accidents and incidents continue to occur. This seminar is aimed at technicians, chemists, chemical engineers, plant managers and safety specialists who wish to understand the various hazards posed by static electricity, dust explosions, runaway reactions and how to investigate processes and unit operations for thermal hazards. In order to do this successfully, it is necessary to fully understand the thermal data and the means by which it can be acquired. This seminar advocates a structured approach supported by theory and case studies focusing on the role that laboratory thermal data has in an overall risk minimization strategy.
This course will introduce you to the theory of static electricity and its hazards in day to day operations. It will then elaborate on how powders should be safely handled with specific emphasis on drying & milling operations. Next the course will focus on thermodynamics of a chemical reaction, identifying and preventing runaway situations and managing the risks involved therein. The medium of instruction will be through films, presentations, case studies and problem solving exercises.
