Dear Mr Prasad ,

It is good that you have posted a safety presentation on Centrifuge

for the benefit of viewers.

1.0 As you are aware there are different types of centrifuges –

top driven , bottom driven, belt driven , direct driven etc

You could have mentioned the one you have referred.

2.0 Centrifuges are found in many locations – say a clinical

laboratory, a research lab, small scale industry, big industry etc

You could have specified for what application the referred

centrifuge is used.

3.0 Centrifuging operations can be conducted for a simple

separation of slurry or special applications like what you

have mentioned Using Nitrogen. Since an inert atmosphere

is specified in your presentation you could have also

mentioned why you need an

inert atmosphere. This will provide process safety awareness

to the viewer.

4.0 In the third and fourth slide, the last line is the same. Is it correct?

5.0 What is purpose of a wrist band – safety aspect ?

Pl explain for the benefit of viewers.

6.0 All the slides seem to have been made in a hurry.

Requires editing.

7.0 Oxygen level monitoring is not required for all types of Centrifuging.

Please mention the specific safety

aspect for the application you have mentioned.

8.0 It is mentioned that vent is connected to a catch pit.

Is the catch pit under vacuum?

9.0 Please mention the reason for providing a flame arrester

in the catch pit. What is the safety reason for the same?

That is mention the explosive gas Or combustible material

in your case.

10.0 The DOs are more than DON’Ts. Please see if it is

necessary to add more of DON’Ts.

11.0 A simple sketch showing what is to be centrifuged, the drive

arrangement, the outputs, catch pit, flame arrester, Nitrogen

source,basic Instrumentation etc would help the viewers

understand your system and safety aspects better.

Thanks for the initiative taken to share the posting.

Dear sir,
A wrist band is used for the ESD(electric static discharge) of who is working in centrifuge room.this is the preventive measure for generating
static electricity in human body/activity.Mostly bulk production plants using centrifuges for material drying in that condition we should maintain the inert atmosphere is the safe mode of operation.
