Sizing & Selection Software (SAVASOFT)
The function of a pressure relief valve is to protect pressure vessels, piping systems, and other equipment from pressures exceeding their design pressure by more than a fixed predetermined amount. The permissible amount of overpressure is covered by various codes and is a function of the type of equipment and the conditions causing the overpressure.
SIZING AND SELECTION
Pressure relief valves must be selected by those who have complete knowledge of the pressure relieving requirements of the system to be protected and the environmental conditions particular to that installation. Too often pressure relief valve sizes are determined by merely matching the size of an existing available vessel nozzle, or the size of an existing pipe line connection. Correct and comprehensive pressure relief valve sizing is a complex multi-step process that should follow the following stepwise approach:
- Each piece of equipment in a process should be evaluated for potential overpressure scenarios.
- An appropriate design basis must be established for each vessel. Choosing a design basis requires assessing alternative scenarios to find the credible worst case scenario.
- The design basis is then used to calculate the required pressure relief valve size. If possible, the sizing calculations should use the most current methodologies incorporating such considerations as two phase flow and reaction heat sources
For this purpose KIASA has offered a comprehensive software which will enable end users to choose right valves in order to save time and money and prevent any fault during valves selection.
