Selection and Sizing of Rupture Discs

Overview / Abstract:

This course covers the non-reclosing type of pressure relief devices known as rupture discs. It reviews the codes that govern rupture discs and the standard formulas and equations that are used to determine their proper selection and sizing. The course is directed toward Chemical and Mechanical Engineers in the process industries but should provide appeal to general practitioners as well. As a prerequisite, the student should have a basic familiarity with pressure vessels and piping systems. This course includes a multiple choice quiz at the end.
