Webinar: Lessons Learned from the Implementation of Sequential Blowdown Design

Webinar: Lessons Learned from the Implementation of Sequential Blowdown Design
  • Date From 28th May 2020
  • Date To 28th May 2020
  • Price Free of charge, open to all.
  • Location Online: 13:00 AEST, 15:00 NZST, 11:00 AWST/MYT. Duration: 1 hour.


The Joint Chemical Engineering Committee (JCEC) Victoria warmly welcomes you to an upcoming webinar.

Guest speaker Minyu Miao will discuss the issues identified in the implementation of sequential emergency blowdown logic design, and the difficulties and challenges in troubleshooting and maintaining complex safety logics.

Minyu will highlight the importance for plants to:

  • review and understand the actual driver for implementing sequential blowdown, especially as a site expands and control and shutdown logics gets more complex
  • consider the increase in the likelihood of human errors when adopting complex safety system logics, and the need for rigorous testing in both initial implementation and later change managements
  • collect accurate and meaningful operating and modelling data to support both brownfield modifications and operational risk analysis of sequential blowdown logic design.
