Be Prepared For The Worst -- Chemical Accidents Happen

I regularly monitor chemical accidents in the news. It's a way to help me understand the dangers that Chemical Processing readers face on a daily basis. Manufacturing can be a dangerous profession. Add chemicals to the mix and the potential hazards grow exponentially. The best defense is being prepared for the worst.

Indeed, just last week a chemical leak at the Bayer CropScience plant in Kansas City, Mo., was quickly contained by Kansas City hazmat crews and Bayer emergency crews.

According to Bayer officials, anhydrous hydrogen chloride leaked from a container being offloaded from a rail car. The plant manager credits extensive training of the staff as the reason the situation was quickly contained.

"We have a monitoring system so immediately we had a coded alarm informing all employees that our emergency brigade crew went into response mode," Bayer Science Crop Manager Paul Nagy said.

Does your site have a monitoring system in place? Do your employees receive emergency-preparedness training?

  • Chemical processing hazards due to inexact calculation of atomic-molecular topologies for electrons, waves, energy, or force fields could be reduced by atomic point mapping at picoyoctoscale. Recent advancements in quantum science have produced the picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model imaging function, in terms of chronons and spacons for exact, quantized, relativistic animation. This format returns clear numerical data for a full spectrum of variables. The atom's RQT (relative quantum topological) data point imaging function is built by combination of the relativistic Einstein-Lorenz transform functions for time, mass, and energy with the workon quantized electromagnetic wave equations for frequency and wavelength.

    The atom labeled psi (Z) pulsates at the frequency {Nhu=e/h} by cycles of {e=m(c^2)} transformation of nuclear surface mass to forcons with joule values, followed by nuclear force absorption. This radiation process is limited only by spacetime boundaries of {Gravity-Time}, where gravity is the force binding space to psi, forming the GT integral atomic wavefunction. The expression is defined as the series expansion differential of nuclear output rates with quantum symmetry numbers assigned along the progression to give topology to the solutions.

    Next, the correlation function for the manifold of internal heat capacity energy particle 3D functions is extracted by rearranging the total internal momentum function to the photon gain rule and integrating it for GT limits. This produces a series of 26 topological waveparticle functions of the five classes; {+Positron, Workon, Thermon, -Electromagneton, Magnemedon}, each the 3D data image of a type of energy intermedon of the 5/2 kT J internal energy cloud, accounting for all of them.

    Those 26 energy data values intersect the sizes of the fundamental physical constants: h, h-bar, delta, nuclear magneton, beta magneton, k (series). They quantize atomic dynamics by acting as fulcrum particles. The result is the exact picoyoctometric, 3D, interactive video atomic model data point imaging function, responsive to software application keyboard input of virtual photon gain events by relativistic, quantized shifts of electron, force, and energy field states and positions. This system also gives a new equation for the magnetic flux variable B, which appears as a waveparticle of changeable frequency. Molecular modeling and chip design engineering application software developer features for programming flow are built-in.
