In about 75% of the major safety hazards in a urea plant a leak can occur whereby corrosive ammonium carbonate and toxic ammonia will be released. This has already led to at least 36 casualties and 198 people injured. In nearly 90% of these incidents, the leak occurred suddenly, without any pre-warning.
In such a case one enters into a challenging dilemma: Should one stop the plant immediately or is it possible to wait? Are all leaks the same? Or are some more critical than others? What are exactly the risks and how one can minimize the risks and avoid leaks?
This Urea Clinic will discuss the various possible kind of leaks in a urea plant and its consequences and safety risks. It will also discuss prevention and mitigation measures. The Clinic will discuss several historical cases, which can be used as guidelines but sometimes also can bring up surprising and unexpected learning points…
By means of lectures and open round table discussions we target to reach a better understanding of the specific safety risks of the various kind of leaks leading and better decisions how to handle leaks in urea plants.
