THC Remediation Safety Features SCB-15

Remediation Will Not Start if Reactor Lid is not Closed

Of course the operator will remember to fasten the reactor lid closed before starting the remediation process. But what if they forgot? We’ve got you covered. The reactor lid has a sensor that detects when the lid is closed.  If the sensor doesn’t detect closure, the remediation process won’t start. This feature is just one of many that gives peace of mind just in case.

Startup Safety/Setup Reminders

The touch screen guides the operator through the start up of the remediation process.  The operator is asked to confirm step by step that the equipment is set up correctly.  This assures that no step is forgotten, and remediation can proceed safely and correctly.  This is particularly useful for preventing startup mistakes for operators new to the equipment or for operators who have not run the remediation system in a while.

Safety Monitoring

The remediation system is fitted with sensors to automatically monitor and control the remediation process.  The monitoring system makes sure that measurements are within safe ranges.  If a parameter falls outside the safe range, the process is halted.  Warnings are displayed on the touch screen and an audible alarm is sounded.  Once the problem is corrected, remediation can continue.  This feature allows the equipment to operate unattended overnight with complete confidence.

Parameters monitored include vacuum, pressure, reactor temperature, cold trap temperature, reactor weight, reactor lid position and more. 

Emergency Stop Button

Need to stop in a hurry?  Push the big red stop button on the front panel.  The remediation process will stop immediately.

Pressure relief valve

The reactor has a pressure relief valve on top.  In the unlikely event of a pressure build up in the reactor, the pressure relief valve will let off the excess pressure to prevent an unsafe situation.   The pressure relief valve has a shield around it so that if activated, the valve will not vent in the direction of an operator.
