Client Testimonials

Anthony M Smith, UNFI

“UNFI was at the forefront of what was going to become not only a business hurdle but a national pandemic. I was faced with multiple union strikes and staffing shortages around the United States. Upon notification of my first strike (walk-out) RSS was able to provide within 48-72 hours all the support necessary to get the distribution center up and running and on-time to customers. The customers stated that the replacement workers were better than the regular workforce.

I can not tell you how much I appreciated the support you and your team was able to provide when we were faced with a national emergency.”

Regional Vice President, U.S. largest food distributor

“I wanted to reach out and thank you for the support provided. This was new territory for our management team. When it came to contingency drivers, your team stepped up in a very significant way during a very troubling time for our distribution center. Not only were you there for us, but you proved to be extremely fast and flexible with filling our needs in under 48 hours notice. Your onsite management of your driver contingency team was the exact partnership we needed to ensure we could focus our time on our customers.”

Frequently Asked Questions

What does a Chemical Operator do?

A chemical operator, also known as a process operator, plays a critical role in the manufacturing industry, particularly within chemical plants and facilities. Their duties encompass a wide range of responsibilities to ensure the smooth and safe operation of chemical processes and machinery. Here’s a breakdown of what a chemical operator typically does:

  • Monitoring Equipment: They oversee the operation of chemical processing equipment, ensuring it runs efficiently and safely. This includes reactors, distillation columns, pumps, and compressors.
  • Adjusting Controls: Chemical operators adjust controls to regulate temperature, pressure, flow rate, and other parameters within the process machinery. They make real-time adjustments based on the process requirements.
  • Quality Control: They take samples and perform tests to monitor the quality of products and to ensure the chemical processes are proceeding as planned, making adjustments as necessary to maintain product quality.
  • Safety Compliance: Chemical operators follow all safety procedures and regulations to prevent accidents and injuries. This includes wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), handling chemicals safely, and responding to emergencies.
  • Maintenance and Troubleshooting: They perform routine maintenance on equipment and troubleshoot any issues during the chemical processes, often working closely with maintenance teams to resolve more complex problems.
  • Record Keeping: Accurate records of operations, test results, and maintenance activities are crucial. These records ensure traceability and compliance with regulations and help identify process improvements.
  • Process Improvement: Chemical operators contribute to process improvement initiatives by providing feedback on process efficiency, suggesting improvements, and implementing new procedures under supervision.
  • Training: They may also train new operators and ensure that team members are up-to-date with the latest operating procedures and safety regulations. 
What are the main types of equipment used in chemical processes, and what roles do they play in the manufacturing and handling of chemicals?

Chemical process equipment comprises the machinery and devices used in chemical plants and industrial processes to manufacture chemicals and other products through chemical reactions or physical separation methods. This equipment is designed to handle various chemicals safely and efficiently, often operating under high temperatures, pressures, and corrosive or hazardous conditions. Key categories and examples of chemical process equipment include:

  • Reactors: Reactors are the heart of many chemical processes; reactors are vessels where chemical reactions occur. They are designed to control reaction conditions such as temperature, pressure, and mixing to optimize the reaction rate and product yield.
  • Heat Exchangers: These devices transfer heat between two or more fluids at different temperatures without mixing them. They are essential for heating or cooling process streams to the desired temperatures, recovering heat from hot streams, and condensing vapors.
  • Distillation Columns are used to separate liquid mixtures into their component parts (fractions) based on differences in volatility. Distillation is one of the most common separation techniques in the chemical industry.
  • Pumps: Move liquids and gases through the process equipment from one stage to another and can handle a variety of materials, including corrosive and viscous fluids.
  • Compressors: Increase the pressure of gases for transportation, reaction, or storage. They are critical for processes that require gases at high pressures.
  • Tanks and Storage Vessels: Store raw materials, intermediates, and finished products. They can be designed to operate at atmospheric pressure, under a vacuum, or at higher pressures and can be equipped with heating or cooling systems as needed.
  • Filtration Equipment: This equipment removes solids from liquids or gases using filters, centrifuges, or membrane processes. It is crucial for purifying products, recovering valuable materials, and treating waste streams.
  • Mixers and Agitators: Facilitate the mixing of chemicals to ensure homogeneity. They are essential in processes where ingredients must be combined thoroughly to react or form a final product.
  • Evaporators: These devices concentrate solutions by evaporating the solvent. They are commonly used in the production of concentrates and the recovery of solvents.
  • Dryers: Remove moisture from materials, which is crucial for preparing solid materials for packaging, storage, or further processing.

Chemical process equipment is fundamental to the chemical industry. It enables the production of a wide range of products, from petrochemicals and pharmaceuticals to plastics and food additives. The design and operation of this equipment require a deep understanding of chemical engineering principles, materials science, and safety considerations.
