Pressure relief valves (PRVs) are critical safety and equipment protection devices to prevent overpressure conditions. They need ongoing maintenance to assure that they operate as designed for their intended applications. In a Valve magazine article, Lifecycle Management of Pressure Relief Valves, Emerson’s Kevin Simmons and Marcelo Dultra describe considerations for effective and efficient PRV sizing, […]

In an earlier post, Creating Pressure Relief Valve Fugitive Emissions Testing, we described the advancement of this effect to create standards in this area. I joined Emerson’s Dr. Amr Gado and Calvin Deng as they presented this work in an Offshore Technology Conference (OTC) technical track, Striving Toward Safety Excellence in Offshore and Subsea Environments. […]

Globally, oil and gas producers seek ways to lower fugitive emissions for safety, environment and economic reasons. These are the unintended emissions of gases from pressurized parts of the production process. At the upcoming April 30-May 3 Offshore Technology Conference in Houston, Emerson’s Amr Gado and Calvin Deng will present a paper, Pressure Relief Valves […]

Wireless devices are finding their way into more and more applications. The abstract from this session is: Monitoring of relief valves is a challenge, detecting when they are “simmering”, or have lifted-off, or if after a lift-off did they re-seat fully. Sometimes knowing exactly when and how long an emission lasted is of value, especially […]
