||American Institute of Chemical Engineers, 345 East 47th Street, New York, NY 10017, USA, 7th ed. 1994. 83p. Illus. Price: USD 40.00 (USA), USD 56.00 (elsewhere).
||This guide provides key information for evaluating the overall fire and explosion risk of individual chemical process units. Steps involved in the risk analysis procedure are described in detail, including: selection of process units to be studied; determination of the material factor of each unit; calculation of general and special process hazards; determination of the area of exposure surrounding the unit, the maximum probable property damage and the maximum probable days outage. Some sample calculations are included. Hazard factors of selected chemical compounds are listed in appendix. Previous edition: see CIS 89-631.
