Pressure Relief - Local Regulations

Pressure Relief - Local Regulations

Pressure Relief - Local Regulations

(OP)
I'm looking for European equivalents of the API practices for relief valve sizing and installation in refineries. Does anyone know of a suitable resource?
Thanks.

RE: Pressure Relief - Local Regulations

In Europe we also use API RP 520 and 521 for relief valve sizing and installation. These API standards are basically considered "International Standards".

RE: Pressure Relief - Local Regulations

Well the PED DOES NOT contain a formula for sizing. Its actually referes to e.g. teh API520 for sizing. It mainly deals with the situations where a PSV is required.

Local laws may apply for each country especially for fired boilers and such i believe.

Bestregards

RE: Pressure Relief - Local Regulations

I happened to find this link recently and thought I would post it just as an additional reference to other European codes/standards that might apply....
