The Safety Valve Handbook is a professional reference for design, process, instrumentation, plant and maintenance engineers who work with fluid flow and transportation systems in the process industries, which covers the chemical, oil and gas, water, paper and pulp, food and bio products and energy sectors. It meets the need of engineers who have responsibilities for specifying, installing, inspecting or maintaining safety valves and flow control systems. It will also be an important reference for process safety and loss prevention engineers, environmental engineers, and plant and process designers who need to understand the operation of safety valves in a wider equipment or plant design context. No other publication is dedicated to safety valves or to the extensive codes and standards that govern their installation and use. A single source means users save time in searching for specific information about safety valves The Safety Valve Handbook contains all of the vital technical and standards information relating to safety valves used in the process industry for positive pressure applications. Explains technical issues of safety valve operation in detail, including identification of benefits and pitfalls of current valve technologies Enables informed and creative decision making in the selection and use of safety valves The Handbook is unique in addressing both US and European codes: - covers all devices subject to the ASME VIII and European PED (pressure equipment directive) codes; - covers the safety valve recommendations of the API (American Petroleum Institute); - covers the safety valve recommendations of the European Normalisation Committees; - covers the latest NACE and ATEX codes; - enables readers to interpret and understand codes in practice Extensive and detailed illustrations and graphics provide clear guidance and explanation of technical material, in order to help users of a wide range of experience and background (as those in this field tend to have) to understand these devices and their applications Covers calculating valves for two-phase flow according to the new Omega 9 method and highlights the safety difference between this and the traditional method Covers selection and new testing method for cryogenic applications (LNG) for which there are currently no codes available and which is a booming industry worldwide Provides full explanation of the principles of different valve types available on the market, providing a selection guide for safety of the process and economic cost Extensive glossary and terminology to aid readers’ ability to understand documentation, literature, maintenance and operating manuals Accompanying website provides an online valve selection and codes guide.

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.

Valves are the components in a fluid flow or pressure system that regulate either the flow or the pressure of the fluid. They are used extensively in the process industries, especially petrochemical. Though there are only four basic types of valves, there is an enormous number of different kinds of valves within each category, each one used for a specific purpose. No other book on the market analyzes the use, construction, and selection of valves in such a comprehensive manner. Covers new environmentally-conscious equipment and practices, the most important hot-button issue in the petrochemical industry today Details new generations of valves for offshore projects, the oil industry's fastest-growing segment Includes numerous new products that have never before been written about in the mainstream literature

Levelled at anyone working at a technical level in the process control industry, Part 2, Diagnostics, Maintenance and supplementary topics, covers a variety of maintenance and diagnostic issues including: testing for dead-band/hysteresis, stick-slip and non-linearity; on-line diagnostics; signature analysis; and correct procedures for calculating the spring 'wind-up' or 'bench set'. Part 2, also takes an in-depth look at a number of other concerns including: safety relief valves and instrument air systems. Finally, this volume covers a number of topics which are all too often ignored: acoustics; water hammer; classification of stainless steel; and even humidity measurement.

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

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.
