Course Description

This course is designed to provide participants with a detailed and up-to-date overview of pressure relief devices and safety valve design, operation, maintenance, and troubleshooting. It covers the standards, NBI and VR- codes comprising of parties involved, code revision process, jurisdiction authorities and authorized inspection agencies; the objective, scope, definition and description of terms of ASME PTC 25-2008; the PRV principles and development of pressure relief valve; the PRV installation; the installation requirements, factors, operational requirements  and  other installation considerations; and the PRV optional malfunctions in testing facilities. During this interactive course, participants will learn the PRV certifications, training and personal qualifications and the procedure for determining valve capacities; the PRV repair and non-destructive examination; the PRV terminology and the various types of valves; the nameplate data and correct interpretation; the valve disassembly, valve critical inspections, lapping, grinding and assembly; the systematic valve testing and sealing; the inspection and testing of pressure-relieving devices; the causes of improper performance  including replacement of rupture disk devices and inspection of pressure-relief valve on stream; troubleshooting and calibration; and the valve quality systems, and obtaining VR and administrative rules.
