Protect processing plants against jet fires
The impact of jet fires on process equipment is critical, and it is important to examine possible design considerations that can mitigate many of the jet fire consequences.
When a pressurized piping or vessel that contains
hydrocarbon gas leaks to atmosphere, it can catch fire and form
a jet fire. The impact of jet fires on process equipment is
critical, and it is important to examine possible
design considerations that can mitigate jet fire consequences.
Material alternatives and wall thickness (Wt) of the
vessel exposed to jet fire are two key parameters discussed
here. The rupture time of the process vessel in different
scenarios is also examined.
