Relief & Safety Valves II
Industrial facilities use piping systems and tanks to transport and store water, steam, and gases at various temperatures and pressures. Although the pressures in these systems are carefully monitored and adjusted, operator error or an equipment malfunction can result in a loss of pressure control. If pressure is allowed to increase or decrease beyond the tolerances of the system containing the fluid, a catastrophic failure can occur. Relief and safety valves are used to prevent this from occurring, thereby avoiding equipment damage and personnel injury
