The major hazards with which the chemical industry is concerned are fire, explosion and toxic release. All the hazard in the chemical industry can be relate to their reactivity. The reactivity plays an important role as the chemicals have their specific attributes of their own. So, in assessing the damage potential and causes or errors which have led to these disasters, an analysis has to be done. The impacts of reactivity in the process industries may be predicted based on the database. However, the applications of these models require competency in computer programming. Therefore, the objective of this project is to develop an application called the Chemical Reactivity Hazard System (CRHS), which is able to study the impact of chemical reactivity in the process industry.
The CRHS application is developed using Visual Basic (VB) programming language. The develop software utilizing an established database for the chemical reaction in order to generate the result of hazards. With the reaction, the application shows the respective hazard codes and their description. . The software has been tested with few case studies and the results shows a good agreement with the other results from different softwares. The development of this software has been divided into four stages, which are planning the application, collecting the required database, writing the computer programme, and integrate the result into the software.
The software is capable to estimate the reactivity hazard of chemicals in the industries and it is designed in a flexible way, so the users can add more chemicals if they did not find their target one. The hazard code will give us the data for tackle such problems if it occurs in the industries. It gives us the first layer of protection against the hazards. The CRHS application is useful and feasible because it is user-friendly, able to function as a stand-alone application and it is compatible with all windows operating system.
