Design of pressure relief systems is a critical safety component in any process. CEI engineers are skilled at evaluating and designing relief systems that meet accepted engineering standards and also minimize excessive cost due to over-sizing of relief devices and vent piping.
The engineers routinely size:
- Pressure-relief valves (PSV)
- Pressure-rupture disks (PSE)
- Combination PSV/PSE installations
- Active vent systems
- Vent piping systems
- Vent header systems with multiple inputs and collection tanks
A further consideration is that systems design is meant to take into consideration all credible pressure scenarios, eliminating the need for a pressure relief systems device. This method of design often lowers construction cost, reduces leaks, and lowers maintenance cost while still providing the safety required by today’s standard.
