Overview

The #1 Process Safety Guide, Now Extensively Updated for Current Industrial Processes, Systems, and Practices

Process safety has seen a dramatic consolidation of concepts in the past few years. Chemical Process Safety, Fourth Edition, provides students and working engineers with the understanding necessary to apply these new concepts to safely design and operate any process.

Long the definitive guide in the field, this edition fully reflects major recent advances in process safety technology and practice. Readers will find extensive new and updated coverage of relief sizing, hazards identification, risk assessment, and many other topics. Several chapters have been completely rewritten, and all are substantially modified. This textbook includes 50 new problems and solutions (mostly in SI units), and 25 new case histories.
  • Safety culture
  • Preventive and mitigative safeguards
  • The CCPS 20 elements of Risk Based Process Safety (RBPS)
  • Toxicology, industrial hygiene, and source models
  • Hazardous material dispersion
  • Fires, explosions, and concepts for preventing them
  • Chemical reactivity
  • Reliefs and relief sizing
  • Hazards identification and evaluation
  • Risk analysis and assessment, including Layer of Protection Analysis (LOPA)
  • Safety strategies, procedures, designs, case histories, and lessons learned
Crowl and Louvar link key academic concepts to modern industrial practice, making this guide invaluable for all engineering students and for all working engineers.
