HAZOP risk analysis in a petrochemical plant
Parachem Chemicals is the only Canadian manufacturer of paraxylene, an aromatic hydrocarbon in the polyester production chain used to manufacture clothing and plastic bottles, among other items. The company wanted to perform a hazard and operability (HAZOP) risk analysis for its paraxylene crystallization process. The purpose of the analysis was essentially to identify problematic operation and maintenance issues.
