Hazards of Nitrogen and Catalyst Handling - IChemE (Bp by BP Process Safety Series

By BP Process Safety Series

The BP procedure safeguard sequence was once constructed as a supplement to security education, this article makes the suitable reference instrument and coaching reduction. The 2009 variation comprises new case fabric, a brand new part on dangers of infected Nitrogen and a bibliography.

It raises the notice, of operators in the chemical and method industries, to the dangers of nitrogen and capability risks of utilizing catalysts. It starts off through describing nitrogen and using catalysts, its makes use of and homes, prior to stating the capability dangers. utilizing case experiences of exact injuries to focus on the capability threats and clarify the potential reasons, it increases the data and wisdom of operators to the risks of nitrogen and of utilizing catalysts, allowing them to identify risks ahead of injuries happen. The booklet concludes with a self-test part permitting readers to check their knowing of the data awarded. a great creation to the subject for students.

3 ft). • 36 Entry personnel should be properly trained on this issue and a good control of the work by both the specialist contractor and the refinery team is essential. H A Z A R D S O F N I T R O G E N A N D C AT A LY S T H A N D L I N G • Specialist contractors are responsible for the rescue of personnel from a confined space that is knowingly under 100% nitrogen. • The specialist contractor’s emergency response team must always be well equipped and ready to enter the reactor in case of an incident.

Identical work carried out on different days (even if it is a matter of one day) must be re-assessed and re-confirmed with newly issued or endorsed work instructions / work permit to cover changes or modifications. • Ensure training programs for employees and safety orientation for contractors clearly communicate the hazards and symptoms of exposure to nitrogen and other asphyxiants. • Ensure that a specific work procedure is provided for inert gas entry. (Refer to pages 48 and 49 for details).

Local catalyst self ignition was made possible because of air leakage from a damaged supply hose (and also maybe because of the atmosphere disturbance when the catalyst wall fell). This successful rescue was possible due to a recent change of procedure requiring a stand-by person to be available at all times and prepared during any vessel entry under nitrogen purge. 7 Other hazards associated with catalyst handling It is worth noting that other ‘more conventional’ incidents frequently occur during catalyst loading and unloading operations, for example: • A fork-lift truck overturned and crushed the operator while transporting catalyst on pallets.
