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
