Pressure Relief Equipment
Pressure relief equipment are used in a wide range of specifications where pressure levels are critical for smooth operations such as oil and gas, petrochemical, and power generation using steam, air, gas or liquid. They are also used in multi-phase applications in refining and chemical processing systems.
A flame arrester functions by dropping the burning mixture below its auto-ignition temperature: consequently, dousing the flame.
Rupture disc is a non-closing pressure relief device used to protect industrial applications from overpressure- or vacuum-related events. Rupture discs are used where instantaneous and full opening of a pressure relief device is required. These devices are also utilized where “zero” leak-age is required of a relief device. These devices can also be used in series as “quick opening” valves.
