Preventing explosions during chemicals and materials storage

Authors


Abstract

Simple passive means are considered for preventing explosions in connection with storage of non-reactive and reactive materials. For high-pressure storage, special attention is given to the elimination of BLEVEs. Cost-effective passive features are proposed to accommodate both global and local fire impingement conditions. For atmospheric pressure storage, passive features are considered to accommodate potential fire exposure and prevent runaway scenarios for reactive systems.
