Pressure-Relief System Design: Developments and Deficiencies

By Neil Prophet and Casey Houston, ioMosaic |

Areas of recent activity for pressure-relief systems include new calculation methods and updates to existing codes and standards. Included here is an overview of recent developments and a look at the results from a recent study of pressure-relief system deficiencies and solutions The process safety field is constantly changing and evolving, so it is important to periodically assess new developments that affect each of the various types of safety equipment. Pressure relief and flare systems are examples of equipment systems that have experienced recent and ongoing changes. This article focuses primarily on three areas of activity in pressure-relief systems: new calculation methods; updates to regulatory codes and standards; and lessons learned from safety events at chemical process industries (CPI) facilities. To illustrate potential problems associated with pressure-relief systems and possible mitigation options, the article also discusses the findings from a study, conducted by the authors’ employer, of pressure-relief equipment at a petrochemical facility. New calculation methods New calculation methods are constantly being developed and enhanced to address both new and existing safety topics (for information on calculations…
