Heighten your awareness, understanding and appreciation of chemical plant accidents. Get a real-life look at case histories of process accidents in the chemical industry. Review numerous actual process case histories and view hundreds of vivid images of plant sites, fires or damaged equipment. Enjoy interactive participation to help identify the causes of previous accidents and learn to mitigate and eliminate chemical process hazards. Learn p...ractical fundamentals during a fast-paced, interactive exchange on Process Safety details between you, other attendees and the presenter. During this course your attention will be focused on practical "within-the-fence" details that have been overlooked by well-meaning, dedicated employees and resulted in costly incidents. You will review fundamentals and the needed foundations for a Management of Change Program that is vital for Safe Operations. Some basics of Fires and Explosions will be examined through case histories. You will review process safety elements revealed by Tales Tanks Tell. (Tanks are often the Victims of Chemical Process Mishaps and vividly expose the mistakes of our judgments.) See a "situation response" technique you can use at your facility, and learn about Relative Risk, Layers of Protection in chemical plants and much more!

This class will demonstrate items that can be taught to operators to improve their observation, data gathering and troubleshooting skills. They should be taught how centrifugal pumps produce pressure and flow. The operator should be taught various items that can cause pumps not to perform, which overhauling the pump will not correct. The pump curve should be explained in the simplest of terms so that troubleshooting can take place. Lube syste...ms and bearings should be taught from an operator’s point of view. Additionally what information should be included in a quality work request will be discussed and demonstrated (one way communication). Why operators should be included in capital design projects. The correct use of operator predictive equipment will be discussed and demonstrated. There will be troubleshooting examples.

This course provides participants with the knowledge and skills required to understand the basics of pumps and mechanical seals. The course details the components of pumps and mechanical seals, and their functions, how they work together, and what they need to operate reliably in a system.
Designed as an on-site course, concepts and theory are taught in a classroom setting and then reinforced with hands-on exercises using portable laboratories. 80% classroom, 20% labs.

This course is designed to provide an overview of pressure relief system design and requirements. Pressure vessels and other equipment require relief devices to provide overpressure protection to prevent conditions that may cause serious injuries to personnel, costly mechanical damage and environmental releases. The course gives you specific detailed guidelines for evaluating a relief system, including determining the applicability of overpressure scenarios, required relief rates, and relief device capacity. The key principles from this course provide practical knowledge of the relief system requirements of PSM. (A background in engineering and experience in process safety is helpful.)

This course provides participants with an in-depth procedure for performing a root cause analysis using a logical cause mapping techniques. After learning these techniques, students will work in teams of 4-6 members to endeavor to identify problems, and after applying the RCA process, ultimately recommend solutions to various pump and seal failures presented in several cases studies. 60% classroom, 40% team exercises.

This course will provide an insight into the basics of thermal and mechanical design of furnaces, and the safe and efficient operation of this equipment. Emphasis will be on common design methods, consideration of fuel type, combustion chemistry and heat release, and combustion air supply and control. Mechanical factors will include burners, refractories, instrumentation, tube design, and corrosion and fouling mitigation. Techniques to improve efficiency, operate safely and meet emission guidelines will be reviewed.
