Whoops! I Made a Mistake Sizing My Relief Device and Then I Installed It Incorrectly!

 Mistakes – every engineer makes them. But mistakes made when selecting, sizing and installing pressure relief systems can create serious safety risk.

In this Provenance Consulting sponsored webinar, you’ll consider the risk created by mistakes both new and experienced engineers can make when designing and auditing pressure relief systems. Improper documentation is confusing and may put you at risk of citations as well as create rework. But improper installation or selection of the wrong relief valve can cause serious safety risk. In this webinar, you’ll learn to recognize and eliminate risk at the earliest opportunity. You’ll identify potential mistakes that can be made in overpressure identification and sizing. You’ll discuss common installation pitfalls and how to identify and address them. You’ll also learn how and when to question the necessity and appropriateness of pressure relief systems. By the end of the hour, you’ll be able to audit your own work as well as the work of others with greater proficiency

Take a look at your agenda:

  • How improper installation and selection of pressure relief systems impact your safety
  • How to recognize and address common sizing, selection and installation
  • Eliminating safety risk – the earlier, the better
  • Improving how you audit your work and the work of others
