Thermal relief is considered for liquid filled systems. What if the fluid contains a few percent gas? Does the presence of the gas cause the fluid to no longer be considered a liquid, and therefore discount the need to provide thermal relief protection. I am making the assumption that the density of the gas phase increases faster than the density of the liquid phase as temperature increases.
