Standards such as OSHA’s process safety management (PSM) in the United States and Pressure Equipment Directive (PED) in the European Union, as well as many internal corporate standards, require companies to demonstrate that they protect their processes against overpressure hazards and that they rigorously evaluate the design of the pressure relief systems providing that protection.
Relief Valve Sizing Training Content
This three-day course will help process safety engineers and managers prepare to meet key elements of the standards by presenting proven best practices and methodologies for overpressure contingency identification and relief device sizing. The course demonstrates a step-by-step pressure relief design heuristic, based on Recognized and Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP). In addition, instructors will provide practical examples for illustration purposes.
