Pressure Relief Valve (PRV) has been widely use in overpressure protection of pressure containment equipment. Regardless of vessel/column/drum/tank designed in accordance to any pressure vessel code e.g. ASME, JIS, BS, GB, etc, code will make overpressure protection by means of pressure relief device (i.e PRV, rupture disc, etc) as mandatory for fire contingencies as minimum. There are many handbooks and articles available online and FREE for read and download. Out of all, i would like to highlight a few that i think they are rather complete and you shall not miss them.

Relief Valve " What Can Go Wrong ?"
What can go wrong in a chemical facility? Plenty! A report in the August 2000 issue of CEP1 shows that operator error or poor maintenance was the leading of cause of accidents for unfired pressure vessels eight years running. Accidents not only damage equipment but also cause injury or even death to plant personnel. To reduce the number of incidents of accidents, it is the job of the Process Engineer to analyze the process design, determine the "what can go wrong" scenario and either find a way to "design" out of it or provide protection against catastrophic failure in the event an accident does occur, i.e. install a relieving device such as a relief valve and/or rupture disk...

It contents cover (1) Terminology, (2) PRV design, (3) ASME code, (4) DOT code (5) Sizing, (6) Installation, (7) Valve Types, (8) PRV Document Index, (9) Back pressure, (10) Flow Factor and (11) Flow Losses.

CROSBY'S PSV Engineering Handbook
TYCO Flow Control
The primary purpose of a pressure relief valve is protection of life and property by venting fluid from an overpressurized vessel. Information contained in this handbook applies to the overpressure protection of pressure vessels, lines and systems.

Calculating Relief Valves Under The New ASHRAE 15 Rules
International Institute of Ammonia Refrigeration
Between the 1994 and 2001 editions of the ASHRAE 15 standard, there were substantial changes in the method for calculating allowable length for relief discharge piping. These have confused and upset many people in the industry, including my fellow IIAR members. This short note is a simple example of how to perform calculations under the new rules.

These valves are functioned to maintain a relatively fixed outlet pressure within a certain extent of flow. Offered in different specifications, these valves are used in a host of industrial applications.
