The protection of batch chemical reactors against overpressure
thesisposted on 27.09.2012 by Graham P. Somerville-Marrs
In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
A study was required of the methods of protecting chemical reactors against overpressure. At present the use of bursting discs, or pressure relief valves is not only normal but virtually mandatory. There are, however, some uncertainties and difficulties in the design of venting systems based on bursting discs and pressure relief valves and some evidence of failures of such systems. There is also some pressure to permit alternative means of protection based on control systems, including trip and interlock systems.
