Control Technology Assessment for Coal Gasification and Liquefaction Processes: Final Study Plan.


PB90153537

Publication Date 1979
Page Count 46
Abstract A plan was detailed for an evaluation of engineering controls used in coal conversion processes. The study evaluated the different control methods, assessed and documented monitoring devices and work practices used to reduce or eliminate worker exposures and emissions, assessed and documented personal protective equipment, and reviewed and assessed the validity and accuracy of existing facility sampling data. Research needs were identified for new control technology and efforts were made to obtain accurate cost data for the design, installation, operation and maintenance of the controls evaluated. The first phase of the study involved a search of the existing literature for pertinent information. The second phase involved an evaluation of field facility surveys of performance and engineering control systems at various locations and analogous industries. Current control devices included valves, flanges, and miscellaneous tanks and storage bins. Various categories of control methods were discussed, including controls which result in containment of the harmful agent; controls which remove or reduce the concentration of the contaminants; controls which isolate or remove the worker from toxic agents; and controls and monitoring systems which warn the worker of hazardous conditions.
