Relief valve and flare action items: What plant engineers should know
This article can help the plant engineer review the concerns developed by the design engineer. Implementing field modifications without performing such a review is costly and exposes a facility to unjustified risks.
When most companies implement the process safety management standard, they routinely or periodically review the relief systems and flare systems design bases to ensure compliance with corporate, industry and/or government standards, hereafter referred to as Recognized And Generally Accepted Good Engineering Practices (RAGAGEP). To mitigate concerns before implementing projects, it is advisable for plant engineers to consider several items when reviewing a concerns list:
Relief systems review methodology
Relief systems review priorities
