PHASUITE: AN AUTOMATED HAZOP ANALYSIS TOOL FOR CHEMICAL PROCESSES

0
INTRODUCTION

Safety is an important issue in process design and operation in chemical industry. It is even more critical for modern chemical manufacturing processes, which are either operated under extreme conditions to achieve maximum economic profit, or are highly flexible, such as the specialty chemical or pharmaceutical processes. The importance of safety analysis in process operation is well recognized after occurrence of several tragic accidents that could have been avoided by adequate process safety analysis (Kletz, 1999). As a result, OSHA set the standard for process safety management (Title 29 CFR 1910.119), which requires the use of a process hazard analysis (PHA) technique for the identification of process hazards. It is estimated that 25 000 plant sites in US are covered by the OSHA standard.
