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. 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 probabilistic equations and scenarios make this book an absolute necessity for process industry safety.At the moment of the explosion, part of the plant was closed down due to various repair work. However, the ... The upper part of the closed vertical mixing vessel was cylindrical, and the lower part conical. ... The internal mixing device consisted of a vertical rubber-lined screw surrounded by a rubber-lined earthed steel tube.
