Webinar Details

Halff will be presenting a three-session relief valve training course on March 30th. The training will cover a variety of topics related to pressure safety valves and flare systems. The instructors will focus on primary principles, relief devices, concepts, and standards, associated with pressure relief and flare systems design in both plants and in pipelines. Topics ranging from industry terminology, design codes, device types to scenario identification, and design calculations will be covered.

Topics will Include…

  • Relief systems overview
  • Relief systems design codes
  • Pressure relief device types
  • Overpressure scenario identification
  • Relief systems installation requirements

This training serves as an introduction for learners to acquire a foundation in essential key concepts and issues relating to effective pressure relief and flare system design. Upon completion, the learner will understand basic relief devices and systems and be able to identify common overpressure scenarios, and how to better mitigate risk.
