In industrial safety, engulfing pool fires can cause damages and collapse of process vessels with catastrophic consequences. This work investigates the ethoxylation of 1-dodecanol as a case-study with a multiscale approach able to analyse scenarios of runaway triggered by a pool fire engulfing the reactor. The aim is to understand whether and when the cooling power of the external heat exchanger can prevent dangerous temperature build-up in the chemical reactor.

Abstract

In industrial safety, engulfing pool fires can cause damages and collapse of process vessels with catastrophic consequences. This work investigates the ethoxylation of 1-dodecanol as a case-study with a multiscale approach able to analyse scenarios of runaway triggered by a pool fire engulfing the reactor. The aim is to understand whether and when the cooling power of the external heat exchanger can prevent dangerous temperature build-up in the chemical reactor.
