All activities associated with the pilot plant, including equipment tests, modifications, trial runs and production runs, should be recorded in the Reactive Distillation Pilot Plant Log Book which should be kept in the laboratory at all times. Safety inspections should be undertaken regularly (e.g. once per month) to ensure that the condition of the laboratory is maintained satisfactorily and that any deterioration in equipment is detected promptly. Examples of suitable safety checklists are included in Gibbons (1996) and Lockwood (1997).
