RUNAWAY REACTIONS



Ken Rollins, CEng, FIChemE


Networking, 5:30 PM; Dinner, 6:30 PM; Talk and Business Session, 7:30, 


Abstract:

Batch reactors are the workhorse of the chemical industries, worldwide. Many of these are operated in facilities where incidents can, and do, happen. This presentation will look at the phenomena of runaway chemical reactions in batch reactors. We’ll look at some of the causes of runaway reactions. The presentation will include an examination of two fatal incidents involving runaway reactions in batch reactors. We’ll look at ‘what went wrong’ and how these two incidents could have been avoided. Essential engineering measures will be discussed. Finally, we’ll invite the audience to offer their opinions, so that we all might learn something from each other. This presentation qualifies for 1 hour of Continuing Education credit that will be awarded by eMail after attending.
