Book Description :

Overpressure Protection in the Process Industry: A Critical View provides a practical and pragmatic guidance for anyone dealing with overpressure protection in the process industry. The book explains the background of complicated international codes and regulations, offering a pragmatic and practical approach on how codes that generally do not address specific industries or applications outside the oil and gas industry can be interpreted for specific cases. The book also gives a critical view on these codes and regulations and where they do or don't make sense, along with the challenges in some instances, including technical and practical argumentations. Finally, the book covers specific problem areas and sizing methods when using safety relief devices as overpressure protection, such as how to handle installation, backpressures, blowdowns, the 3% rule, types of chatter and other destructive forces in relief devices. Helps readers understand and apply codes and regulations in a pragmatic way Provides sizing guidance on most overpressure scenarios and how to approach them in a pragmatic way Creates awareness about the possible dangers of overpressure, especially in aging plants and how modifications on the process can jeopardize the overpressure protection Addresses non-regulated types of overpressure protection in a process plant, such as the overpressure and vacuum protection of low-pressure storage tanks and tank blanketing

Book Description :

This two-volume book comprises a comprehensive up-to-date body of knowledge that provides a total in-depth insight into valve and actuator technology – looking not just at control valves, but a whole host of other types including: check valves, shut-off valves, solenoid valves, and pressure relief valves. Research studies within the process industry routinely indicate that the fluid control valve is responsible for 60 to 70% of poor-functioning control systems. Furthermore, valves in general are consistently wrongly selected, regularly misapplied, and often incorrectly installed. A methodology is presented to ensure the optimum selection of size, choice of body and trim materials, components, and ancillaries. Whilst studying the correct procedures for sizing, readers will also learn the correct procedures for calculating the spring ‘wind-up’ or ‘bench set’. Maintenance issues also include: testing for deadband/hysteresis, stick-slip and non-linearity; on-line diagnostics; and signature analysis. Written in a detailed but understandable language, the two volumes are presented in a form suitable for both the beginner, with no prior knowledge of the subject, and the more advanced specialist.

Over recent years, a number of significant developments in the application of valves have taken place: the increasing use of actuator devices, the introduction of more valve designs capable of reliable operation in difficult fluid handling situations; low noise technology and most importantly, the increasing attention being paid to product safety and reliability. Digital technology is making an impact on this market with manufacturers developing intelligent (smart) control valves incorporating control functions and interfaces. New metallic materials and coatings available make it possible to improve application ranges and reliability. New and improved polymers, plastic composite materials and ceramics are all playing their part. Fibre-reinforced plastic pipe systems, glass-reinforced epoxy pipe systems and the traditional low-cost polyester pipe systems have all undergone sophisticated design and manufacturing technology changes. The potential for growth and expansion of the industry is huge. The 3rd Edition of the Valves, Piping and Pipelines Handbook salutes these developments and provides the engineer with a timely first source of reference for the selection and application of Valves and Pipes.
