Pressure relief systems are of critical importance and can be quite complex. When designing and installing a pressure relief system, the configuration of the inlet and outlet piping is critical to its performance. Flow restrictions and excessive pressure drop can result in reduced relieving capacity and system damage. In addition, inlet and outlet piping as well as their support structure must be designed to withstand static and dynamic loads. Compatibility of system components should be verified according to the applicable design and safety codes.
