dsFigure below shows a chemical system in which the temperature increases with the feed rate of flow-controlled stream A. Heat is removed by water circulation through a water cooled heat exchanger. Normal reactor temperature is 200°F, but a catastrophic runaway will start if the temperature reached 300°F. In view of this situation:

1. The reactor temperature is monitored (by TE/TT 714).
2. Rising temperature is alarmed at 225°F (see Horn).
3. An interlock shuts off stream A at 250°F, stopping the reaction (SV-1).
4. The operator can initiate the interlock by punching the panic switch (NC).

a) Construct the fault tree for this system.
b) Obtain the minimal cut sets.
