Investigation into the Causes of Pressure Relief Valve Failure

  title={Investigation into the Causes of Pressure Relief Valve Failure},
  author={B. Hubballi and V. B. Sondur},
This paper describes the preliminary investigation of a research project that aimed to test and identify the causes of pressure relief valve failure. A test rig suitable for testing of relief valves was designed, constructed, and tested. The purpose of the data collected by testing is intended to support the alternative path to determine the service life of relief valves following their removal from the system prior to their replace or disposal. Design, maintenance and operating changes… Expand
