Monomer Purification Operator

Control caustic-wash purification units to remove chemical inhibitors.

What does a Monomer Purification Operator do?

Controls caustic-wash purification units to remove chemical inhibitors from butadiene and styrene monomers to prevent spontaneous polymerization during storage and transit: Starts pumps and injectors to recycle caustic solution through wash tank and mix liquid monomer with caustic solution. Reads gauges and laboratory analysis reports and adjusts controls to regulate mixing and separating of purified monomer and caustic solution containing inhibitor, according to plant standard. Drains caustic solution from wash tank and piping system and pumps cleaning solution through system to remove impurities.
