If a knock out pot is constructed simply out of 18 inch pipe and fittings, can it be considered a "piping component" under API to avoid relief calculations? Probably the only credible scenario would be fire (that is, if its not considered a piping component). The equipment is not otherwise exposed to pressures exceeding 15 psi.
