Double Block & Bleed is one of the most important safety procedures in the industry. To ensure that no pressurized, toxic or hot medium can enter a machine that is under maintenance, an operator will close two valves leading to the machine. This will ensure that even if the first valve leaks, the medium cannot enter the machine. To ensure that in case of a leak, the medium can escape, a bleed valve will be opened between the two valves.
The proper implementation of this procedure prevents people from accidentally supplying energy to a machine while people are working on it. Incorrect execution of the Double Block & Bleed procedure is one of the main causes of injuries/deaths in the general industry.
Using Virtual Reality, OneBonsai built a Double Block & Bleed training in VR. This system is offered in the VR a la Carte offering of OneBonsai, which provides multiple specialized VR trainings to industry clients. This specific training allows:
- An operator to train the complete Double Block & Bleed in VR
- Track performance of the operator during VR training
- Adjust to specific industrial requirements and environments.
