Watch Dr. Georges A. Melhem reveal fundamental Process Safety Office SuperChems explosion building blocks and models that address many of the flaws of simplified sizing methods. Included are case studies of how they are applied and how the burning rate models are developed from measured data.
Master techniques for addressing relief sizing for various scenarios, relief piping system design, flare header modeling and consequence modeling.
Learn the fundamentals of the PSM OSHA regulation to prevent or minimize the consequences of catastrophic releases of toxic, reactive, flammable, or explosive chemicals.
Watch this video for ways to optimize your productivity in SuperChems v11.6. Get tips on working with pipe elevation tools, how to switch between scenarios, ideal nozzle model tools, how to import CCPS relief conditions, and more.
Read this white paper to understand how and who determines the maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP), the relationship between MAWP and Design Pressure, and finally how high-pressure vessel is designed.
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.
