Developed to compliment safety training, Hazards of Nitrogen and Catalyst Handling is the perfect reference tool and training aid for increasing operators’ awareness of the hazards of nitrogen and potential hazards of using catalysts in the chemical and process industries.
This publication starts out by describing how nitrogen and catalysts are used, their properties and the potential hazards associated with them. Using examples of real-life accidents, the potential threats are highlighted and the possible causes are explained, enabling operators to recognise warning signs associated with nitrogen and catalyst use, before accidents occur. The book concludes with a self-test section allowing readers to test their understanding of the information presented.
This is the latest edition available, it includes new case material, a new section on hazards of contaminated nitrogen and a bibliography.
