Leaking flange

In a refinery desulfurisation unit a flange leaked hot hydrogen that caught fire. The flames impinged on a reactor and a large fire started.

Ask yourself and your crew:

  • How can something like this happen here (e.g. on our site)?
  • What safety measures (i.e. procedures, controls/barriers) do we have in place to mitigate the risk?
  • How do we know the risk controls/barriers are working?
  • What improvements or changes should we make to the procedures, controls/barriers or the way we work?
