Case Study

One of the best ways to learn about HAZOP, (after you’ve learned all the fundamentals of the method, of course) is by carrying out hazop analysis of real life plant operations. If you do not have access to this, then you can actually learn from a real life analysis case study. This way you can understand the particular plant, or the node of that particular plant, of which HAZOP Analysis has been done and the way it is analysed, using the techniques that you learn when you study HAZOP.

The hazop analysis case study that you have should have a hazop worksheet, either as a plain hazop worksheet template or as part of a hazop analysis software package. Whether it is a traditional legacy hazop worksheet template or part of a hazop software package does not matter, what does matter is that the document or sheet that you use contains all the necessary hazop guide words, that are essential to do the hazop analysis.

For example, take a look at the picture below. It is actually a screenshot of the animation that you will find in the HAZOP e-learning course (shown below). It shows a plant that has a reactor that processes two reactants to make a product. Steam and cooling water are used to control the reaction temperature. There are various possibilities to be considered, including the fact that the final product can cause an explosion if a runaway reaction takes place, if the temperature is exceeded. All these possibilities should be covered by proper usage of the guide words in the hazop worksheet. As a learner, it is helpful that you actually analyse this hazop analysis case study, as if you were actually carrying out the hazop, so that you will understand various aspects of the technique.

In the below HAZOP Case Study, you will be presented with a proper P & ID of this process and then you will be stepped through the various guide words, intentions, deviations and mitigations, using standard HAZOP formats. It will feel as though you are yourself involved in carrying out the HAZOP of this plant.

What are the advantages of using this hazop e-learning course instead of a hazop book or a hazop pdf to learn about HAZOP?
