This PSE module performs efficient tracking of process safety related data and analysis. A customized workflow allows for a specific operating unit or the entire facility to be studied and evaluated for compliance.
This module integrates Process Safety Enterprise® and SuperChems™ equipping pressure relief safety professionals and operating companies with a complete emergency relief systems (ERS) life-cycle management solution.
Detailed pressure relief valve reports, ERS reports and supporting documentation are managed on one accessible platform meeting industry and corporate recommended compliance practices and standards.
Existing pressure relief and flare systems may be overloaded because of prior unit expansions / upgrades have increased the load on the flare for combined flaring scenarios beyond the original design intentions. This paper provides a general framework for evaluating and maximizing available flare systems capacity, and investigates criteria and approaches for determining a tolerable risk event for flare systems.
A large refinery desired to conduct a third-party audit of their emergency relief systems to ensure that the methodology and engineering analysis used in the design of their emergency relief systems was adequate, conformed to RAGAGEP, and was being performed consistently without significant systemic errors. The audit scope covered two units within the refinery, and considered both individual relief devices, and entire flare systems.
Process Safety Enterprise® workflow guides users through a step-by-step process for standard MOC functions such as MOC initiation, approval, PHA revalidation, pre-startup safety review (PSSR), start-up authorization, etc. The action items are tracked and documented, and workers are notified via email with documentation linked, to make sure changes are properly captured.
