NOTE........Above image a representative and not of the above described plant
We were trying to add acid chloride into an aldehyde at zero degrees cent using PTC conditions and one of ingredient was sodium cyanide, cooling was done by brine, This was in highest scale in plant reactor
We did not run away when instead of adding acid chloride solution in 2 hrs , the Operator a young trainee added it on 10 min…………..I waited at the reactor and controlled an exotherm in plant by switching off brine supply to other reactors,
The reaction got controlled at 59 deg cent and luckily was OK…………the Exotherm was fearful.
This extreme tension is experienced in a lifetime when everyone runs away and no one to help, FEARFUL, In this case the 'I' worked not the 'we'
Despite all odds God saves us
