ABSTRACT

Among 382 domestic accidents for the recent four years, the leakage of storage tanks and facilities accounts for about 19.9%, which is relatively risky. A suitable dike should be installed around the tank considering the height and diameter of the tank in order to prevent chemical spills during the discharging process to outside. Considering the fundamental function of the dike, it is essential to physically block the spills and obtain smooth diffusion with the air. As the safety system is recently advanced, both detection equipment and automatic spill treatment system are used to reduce treatment time and diminish the toxic effect on the human body. This study scientifically confirms the improvements by measuring the probability of human damage using a Probit model and comparing the automatic fluid treatment system inside the dike with the current dike in the case of massive spills from a Hydrogen fluoride (55%) storage tank.
