The volume discusses prevention and protection measures for controlling accidental releases of air toxics. The probability of accidental releases depends on the extent to which deviations (in magnitude and duration) in the process can be tolerated before a loss of chemical containment. Developing a satisfactory control system and equipment capable of withstanding deviations requires adherence to sound process and physical plant design principles and to appropriate procedures and management practices. A process can be controlled by manipulating flow, temperature, pressure, composition, and quantity. A control system can be improved by improving the quality, specifications, and maintenance of physical components, and by duplicating components where warranted. The probability of equipment failure (causing a release) can be reduced by considering various aspects of physical plant design. Finally, protection system technologies (e.g., flares, scrubbers, and enclosures) offer a last line of defense against accidental toxic chemical releases.
