Optimize relief loads with dynamic simulation
Pressure relief analysis is a critical task at the engineering design stage of a grassroots oil refinery project. Relief loads must be determined so that the process units and plant flare systems can be designed.
Pressure relief analysis (PRA) is a critical task at the engineering design stage of a grassroots oil refinery project. During that phase, the relief loads must be determined so that the process units and plant flare systems can be designed.
The key steps of PRA include the determination of individual relief loads and the evaluation/mitigation of each process units overall relief load. Individual relief normally refers to a single piece of equipment or a set of interconnected equipment systems, such as a distillation column protected with a pressure relief valve (hereafter referred to as a protected system).
