Vent Containment Design and Evaluation Webinar

Vent Containment Design and Evaluation Webinar


Learn the DIERS methodology for vent containment design and evaluation of Emergency Relief Systems (ERS). Atmospheric discharge of flammable and/or toxic materials can be hazardous and can cause potential damage to facilities, communities, and the surrounding environments. Proper design and implementation of emergency relief systems where chemical reactors and process storage vessels effluents are treated before being vented to the atmosphere can minimize and preventing incidents. This 60-minute webinar examines pressure relief and effluent handling practices and contingencies for vent containment design and analysis. Understand the requirements of safe discharge location requirements and the significance of effluent handling and vent containment and key considerations when it comes to the disposal, collecting, and treating of vapors, gases, and liquids for ERS design. Phase separation and partial containment as well as the impact of quenching are also discussed in-depth. Real life examples using DIERS methodology are demonstrated to enrich learning.

Who Should Attend

These webinars are designed for chemical engineers involved in pressure relief and flare system design, chemical reactions, and those safety-related professionals interested in advancing their knowledge on process safety and risk assessment.

DIERS Technology Fundamentals Webinar Series

This 4-part webinar series is prepared as a foundational resource on DIERS technology and how it can be applied to your emergency relief systems. An examination of how these approaches have evolved as well as the latest methodologies will be discussed and provided. Each one-hour session is devoted to a principle or approach on emergency relief systems (ERS) design regarding chemical reactivity or depressurization. Practical examples, case studies, and white paper resources will enrich your learning experience. Discover how DIERS technology can help your facility comply with Process Safety Information (PSI) requirements with methodology and tools that improve accuracy and efficiency.


The Design Institute for Emergency Relief Systems (DIERS) was formed in 1976 as a consortium of 29 companies to develop methods for the design of emergency relief systems to handle runaway reactions. Read more...
