Pressure relief is fundamental to the continued safe operation of any process. Pressure relief devices will form the basis of safe operation for company safety reports required under the Control of Major Accident Hazards (COMAH) regulations.

It is important that companies can demonstrate that any installed pressure protective system continues to offer mitigation against the consequences of both over pressure and vacuum. Failure to recognise the implication of pressure relief can and has caused fatal accidents throughout industry.

Good pressure relief design, operations and maintenance is key to:

  • Safety and environmental performance
  • Reduced lifetime costs
  • Improved asset reliability
  • PSM performance reporting

This conference will address the following key themes, whilst illustrating the issues raised and the learning obtained from past incidents:

  • What is pressure relief?
  • Why is pressure relief important?
  • When is pressure relief required?
  • Best practice in relief event identification
  • Alternatives to pressure relief
  • What methods and standards should be used?
  • Ensuring the relief system will work correctly
  • How can relief devices be adequately inspected and maintained?
