Design, Specification, & Optimization of Pressurized Equipment

Pressure relief systems (PRS) are used at thousands, if not millions, of refineries, petrochemical plants, and other industrial processing facilities. Properly functioning relief systems are essential for protecting plant personnel and equipment from unexpected overpressure events which may result in equipment damage, loss of containment, or environmental damage, and also cause costly plant shutdowns or non-compliance fines.

Pressure relief devices (PRDs) should be inspected during installation and at regular intervals to maintain reliability. At E2G, our team of internationally recognized experts in PRS design, optimization, and installation assess and evaluate new or existing systems to provide practical recommendations to maximize reliability and profitability. We help you maintain safety-critical PRS and develop practical mitigation solutions to meet risk management targets, compliance requirements, and business objectives.
