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 valve 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.
By the end of the course, participants will be able to:
Apply an in-depth knowledge and skills in the design, operation and maintenance of flare, blowdown and pressure relief system.
Identify the types, features and application of flare systems.
Determine the applicable codes, standards and recommended practices for flare, blowdown and pressure relief systems.
Acquire knowledge on product storage and tanks and recognize the importance of product recovery.
Evaluate the scope of waste heat recovery and explain its role in flare and pressure relief systems • Recognize the operational malfunctions of pressure relief valves and identify the testing facilities for pressure relief valves.
Who should attend
This course provides systematic techniques on the design, operation and maintenance of flare, blowdown and pressure relief systems. Operations personnel, supervisors and engineers, maintenance personnel and supervisors, senior plant supervisors, operations process support engineers, design engineers, cost engineers and other professionals will gain an outstanding knowledge from the practical and operational aspects of the course.
