SuperChems™ helps process safety and risk engineers overcome the shortcomings of simple relief design techniques which can often lead to over-design, and more importantly, sometimes leading to under-design.
See for yourself how this versatile software tool provides an integrated platform for pressure relief and flare systems (PRFS) evaluation and design. SuperChems™ overcomes the shortcomings of simple relief design techniques often leading to over-design, and more importantly, sometimes leading to under-design.
A large oil refinery with a very complex flare network had become so complex that the tools the refinery was using to evaluate the flows through the flare network could not adequately model the system. The facility had six separate flares, three main headers, and hundreds of relief devices that discharged into the system. As the flare system was modified over the years, multiple cross-connection points were added between the headers in an effort to balance the flow rates through the headers with minimal piping changes.
The client was storing reactive materials in vessels that could be subject to fire exposure. They wanted to be sure that the relief protection on the vessels was correctly sized, or if not, what changes were necessary for an effective relief system.
