Book Description

The Leading Guide To Process Safety Now Extensively Updated For Today’s Processes And Systems

style="margin: 0px;">

style="margin: 0px;"> 

style="margin: 0px;">As chemical processes have grown more complex, so have the safety systems required to prevent accidents. Chemical Process Safety, Third Edition, offers students and practitioners a more fundamental understanding of safety and the application required to safely design and manage today’s sophisticated processes.

style="margin: 0px;">

style="margin: 0px;">The third edition continues the definitive standard of the previous editions. The content has been extensively updated to today’s techniques and procedures, and two new chapters have been added. A new chapter on chemical reactivity provides the information necessary to identify, characterize, control, and manage reactive chemical hazards. A new chapter on safety procedures and designs includes new content on safely management, and specific procedures including hot work permits, lock-tag-try, and vessel entry.

style="margin: 0px;">Subjects Include

  • Inherently safer design
  • Toxicology and industrial hygiene
  • Toxic release and dispersion models
  • Fires and explosions, and how to prevent them
  • Reliefs and relief sizing
  • Hazard identification
  • Risk assessment
  • Safe designs and procedures

4Not bad
By Amazon Customer
I really liked the book (as much as one can like a textbook anyway). The examples were easy to follow and the layout was one which is conducive to learning. The book is really thick but surprisingly light.

5Great book for application of process safety
By Cassie Campbell
Great book if you are looking to learning practical application of process safety. The book has pretty much no derivations and cuts straight to the chase. All equations are summarized well and the use of each equation is well noted.

5Five Stars
By R. Walker
Cheaper version than the non-international; just watch out for problem number differences.
