Mechanical Safety Devices

- for the protection of your plant

Mechanical safety devices serve the protection of life, property and environment by means of a protection of vessels or equipment against an unallowable overpressure. On the basis of the relevant (overpressure) scenarios we recommend the safety measures and specify the safety devices.

With our long-standing experience and by means of commercial as well as in-house developed software we design your safety valves, bursting discs or venting valves according to the valid norms.

We carry out the design for single-phase (gas, liquid), as well as for multi-phase systems (e.g., DIERS methodology). We can determine the necessary safety-related data - if not available - in our lab (e.g. for runaway-reactions).

We develop concepts for the retention of hazardous materials (e.g., blowdown systems) if the substances discharged through the safety devices have to be prevented from a release to the environment in case of an incident.

Our range of services:

  • Determination and verification of design cases and hazardous incident scenarios

  • Consulting for optional safety and counter measures

  • Design and verification of safety valves und bursting discs

  • Conception and design of retention systems / blowdown vessels
