Overview

Guidelines for Engineering Design for Process Safety / Edition 2

This updated version of one of the most popular and widely usedCCPS books provides plant design engineers, facility operators, andsafety professionals with key information on selected topics ofinterest. The book focuses on process safety issues in the designof chemical, petrochemical, and hydrocarbon processing facilities.It discusses how to select designs that can prevent or mitigate therelease of flammable or toxic materials, which could lead to afire, explosion, or environmental damage.

Key areas to be enhanced in the new edition include inherentlysafer design, specifically concepts for design of inherently saferunit operations and Safety Instrumented Systems and Layer ofProtection Analysis. This book also provides an extensivebibliography to related publications and topic-specificinformation, as well as key information on failure modes andpotential design solutions.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“I highly recommend it to process design engineers, project engineers, facility operators, and process safety/loss prevention specialists who will find it very useful." (Process Safety Progress, 1 November 2012)

“While detailed engineering designs are outside the scope of the book, the authors provide extensive references to assist designers who wish to go beyond safety philosophy to the specifics of a particular safety system design.” (Chemical Engineering Progress, 1 August 2012)
