Course Description

This practical and highly-interactive course includes various practical sessions and exercises. Theory learnt will be applied using our state-of-the-art simulators. The flare, blowdown and pressure relief systems are the most important elements for emergency and operational discharge of flammable substances in the process facilities. Safety relief and flare systems control vapour?s and liquids that are released by pressure-relieving devices and blow-downs. Pressure relief is an automatic, planned release when operating pressure reaches a predetermined level. Blowdown normally refers to the intentional release of material, such as blowdowns from process unit start-ups, furnace blowdowns, shutdowns, and emergencies. Vapor depressuring is the rapid removal of vapour?s from pressure vessels in case of fire. This may be accomplished by the use of a rupture disc, usually set at a higher pressure than the relief valve. The principal elements of the safety relief and flare systems are the individual pressure relief devices, the flare piping system, the flare separator drum, and the flare (including igniters, tips, sealing devices, purge and steam injection for smokeless burning). Application of relief devices must comply with appropriate ASME Vessel Codes and API 520/521 standards.Design of relief devices must comply with applicable national codes and laws as well as the requirements of the insurance covering the plant or installation. National regulations not only cover safety but also environmental considerations such as air and water pollution and noise abatement. This course presents a convenient overview of relief system details based on the full scope of API, ASME, and other code and specification requirements. It covers all aspects of relief flare systems from the emergency relief sources through the valving and flare network right to the stack and flare tip. Descriptions and design criteria will be outlined for flare tips, seals, stacks, knockout drums, header systems, relief valves, depressurization systems and basic hazard analysis. Alternative design methods will be also described with reference to the specific nature of relief and flare systems worldwide. link to course overview PDF
