Key Features

Covers the legislation for containment guidelines in the US, UK, and Europe

Provides an exhaustive list of containment equipment, including chapters on maintenance and reliability

Shows the engineer how to develop a containment strategy for his/her plant


This is the only book that covers containment, specifically for the process industries. This Guide covers the range of containment equipment from simple air-flow control devices to enclosures that restrict exposures to well below a microgram per cubic meter averaged over a working day. The selection of a particular containment system for a particular transfer operation can be difficult because of the wide choice available. This Guide provides a structured approach to the selection process.
