Hi everyone, i have to size a safety valve using API 521. Do i have to follow the standard orifice table in API 526 (D, E, F, ecc.)? I'm not sure about that because over this table the standard says: "These effective areas are valid only when used with the sizing equations in API 520, Part I".
Thank you very much for your help
