Course overview

Facility equipment needs protection against failure from overpressure. Safety systems consisting of pressure relief devices, flare systems, and drains help prevent overpressure.

The Overpressure Safety Systems training course describes the design, operation, and use of overpressure safety systems. It discusses pressure relief devices, including flares. It also explains the causes of overpressure. This online course is part of the Process Safety Systems training series.
