ESD valve location - Guide

ESD valve location - Guide

ESD valve location - Guide

Hi all,

Is there a good reference document or article that discusses the location of ESD valves?

E.g. ESD valves are located on the liquid outlet of vessels presumably to isolate the liquid inventory in case of a leak. Also, they will be at fire area boundaries to prevent flammable materials from one area feeding another.
