TERMINOLOGY

Definitions

For the purpose of this Standard the following definitions shall apply. However
for additional details refer to API 520 and API 576:

Accumulation

Accumulation is the pressure increase over the maximum allowable working


pressure of the vessel during discharge through the pressure relief valve,
expressed as a percentage of that pressure, or actual pressure units.

Back Pressure

This is the pressure due to the combined effect of superimposed and built-up
back pressure in the discharge side of the valve.

Superimposed Back Pressure

Superimposed back pressure is the static pressure in the discharge


header before the safety relief valve opens.

Constant Superimposed Backpressure

This type of back pressure remains essentially at a fixed value


(constant) and exists (superimposed) continuously prior to and during
opening of the valve.

Variable Superimposed Backpressure

This type of back pressure varies or changes over a range from a


minimum to a maximum, or vice versa, The actual back pressure at any
specific time depends on conditions in the piping system to which the
outlet of the valve is connected,

Blowdown

Blowdown is the difference between set pressure and reseating (closing)


pressure of a pressure relief valve, expressed as a percentage of the set
pressure, or in actual pressure units.

Built-up Back Pressure

Built-up back pressure is the pressure which develops at the valve outlet as a
result of flow through the valve, after the pressure relief valve has opened.

Car Seal

A self-locking seal intended for sealing or locking the isolation block valves
installed with pressure relief valves assembly. When Car-Seal is placed in
position and closed, it locks perfectly and securely and can not be opened or
removed unless cut with the wire cutter or physically broken intentionally in
order to be removed.

Closinc Pressure

The closing pressure is the point at which the pressure relief valve recloses.
This signifies the value of decreasing inlet static pressure at which the valve
disc re-establishes contact with the seat or at which lift becomes zero, as
determined by seeing, feeling or hearing.

Cold Differential Test Pressure (CDTP)

Cold differential test pressure is the set pressure at which the valve is
adjusted to open on the test stand. This pressure includes the corrections for
back pressure andlor temperature and service conditions.

Conventional Safety Relief Valve

A convsntional safety relief valve is a direct spring loaded pressure relief valve
whose operational characteristics i.e. opening pressure, closing pressure, and
relieving capacity are directly affected by changes in the back pressure.

Flutter

Flutter is the abnormal, rapid reciprocating motion of the movable parts in


which the disc does not fully sit on the seat of a valve.

Leak-Test Pressure

It is the specified inlet static pressure at which the seat-leak test is performed.

Lift

Lift is tne actual travel of the disc away from the closed position when a valve
is relieving.

KOC Controlling Team

Any KOC Team authorized to initiate a request for procurement of material


andlor equipment for KOC, or any KOC Team that commands andlor
manages andlor controls andlor executes a KOC project.
Manufacturer / Vendor

The Manufacturer or Vendor is the original equipment manufacturer or its


authorized company responsible to deliver / supply the equipment and on
whom t i e KOC places the purchase order.

Maximum Allowable Working Pressure (MAWP)

The maximum allowable working pressure is the maximum gauge pressure


permissible at the top of a complete vessel in its normal operating position at
the designated coincident temperature specified for that pressure. A vessel
may not be operated above this pressure at any metal temperature other than
that used in its design. Consequently, for that metal temperature, it is the
highest pressure at which the pressure relief valve is set to open.

Maximum Operating Pressure (MOP)

The maximum operating pressure is the gauge pressure which is expected or


anticipated during the operation of a pressure system or the vessel or
equipment.

Non-reclosing Pressure Relief Device

A pressure relief device, which remains open after operation and does not
reclose itself unless manually reset or replaced. Rupture disk is an example of
Non-reclosing device.

Opening Pressure

The value of the increasing inlet static pressure at which there is a


measurable lift of the disk or at which the discharge of the fluid becomes
continuous as determined by seeing, feeling, or hearing.

Operating Pressure

The o~erating pressure is the gauge pressure to which the vessel or


equiprrient is normally subjected during service.

Overpressure

Overpressure is a pressure increase over the set pressure of the pressure


relief valve. Overpressure is similar to accumulation when the relieving device
is set at the maximum allowable working pressure of the vessel. The
overpressure is generally expressed as a percentage of set pressure or in
pressure units.
DOC. NO. KOC-MP-027 PART 1 1 Page 10 of 35 1 REV. 1

Pressure-Relief Valve (PRV)

A pressure relief valve is a pressure-relief device designed to open and


relieve excess pressure and to reclose and prevent further flow of fluid after
normal conditions have been restored. A pressure-relief valve opens when its
upstream pressure reaches the opening pressure. It then allows the fluid to
flow until its upstream pressure falls to the closing pressure. It then closes
preventing any further flow. Examples of specific types of pressure-relief valve
include Safety Valve, Relief-valve, Conventional Safety Relief Valve, Balanced
Safety 3elief Valve, and Pilot-operated Pressure-relief Valve.

Pressu -e-Relief Device (PRD)

The Pressure Relief Device comprises of the Pressure Relief Valve, the Relief
Valve, the Safety Relief Valve, the Safety Valve, and the Rupture Disk etc. As
such the PRD could be any of the above device intended to protect the
pressure vessels, equipment and personnel by automatically opening at
predetermined pressures and preventing the destructive consequences due to
excess ve pressures.

Pressure Vacuum Valve ( P W )

A weight loaded, spring-loaded valve, used to relieve excess pressure and /or
vacuum that has developed in an atmospheric or low pressure storage tank.

Rated Capacity

Rated zapacity is the percentage of measured flow at an authorized percent


overpressure permitted by the applicable code. Rated capacity is generally
expres:r;ed in kilograms per hour (kg/hr) or pounds per hour (Ibslhr) for
vapour;. For gases it is expressed in normal cubic meters per minute
(NCMIrnin) or m3/min or standard cubic feet per minute (SCFM), and for
liquids in litres per minute (Llmin) or gallons per minute (GPM).

Relief Valve (RV)

A relid valve is a spring loaded pressure relief valve actuated by the static
pressu-e upstream of the valve and it opens normally in proportion to the
pressure increase over the opening pressure. A relief valve begins to open
when the static inlet pressure reaches set pressure. As the static inlet
pressure overcomes the spring force, the disk begins to lift off the seat,
allowing flow of the liquid. The value of the closing pressure is less than that
of the set pressure and will be reached after the blowdown phase is
completed. Relief valves are normally used for incompressible fluids i,e.
liquids.
Relieving Conditions

It indicates the inlet pressure and the temperature of a pressure relief device
during an overpressure condition. The relieving pressure is equal to the valve
set pressure (or rupture disk burst pressure) plus the overpressure.

Safety ielief Valve (SRV)

A safety-relief valve is a spring-loaded pressure relief valve that may be used


as either a safety valve (intended for incompressible fluids) or relief valve
(intended for compressible fluids) depending on the application. A safety relief
valve is an automatic pressure-relieving device which may be used as either a
safety or relief valve depending upon application.

Safety Valve (SV)

A safety valve is a spring loaded pressure-relief valve that is actuated by the


static pressure upstream of the valve and characterized by rapid opening or
pop action. When the static inlet pressure reaches the set pressure it will
increase the pressure in the huddling chamber and overcome the spring force
on the disk. This will cause the disk to lift and provide full opening at minimal
overpressure. A safety valve is normally intended for compressible fluids such
as gas, air or vapor etc.

Seat Tightness Pressure

Seat tightness pressure is the specified inlet static pressure at which a


quantitative seat leakage test is performed in accordance with a standard
proced-~re.

Set Pressure

Set pressure is the gauge pressure at the valve inlet, for which the safety
relief valve has been set to open under service conditions, In liquid service,
set pressure is determined by the inlet pressure at which the valve starts to
discharge. In gas or vapour service, the set pressure is determined by the
Inlet pressure at which the valve pops.

Simmer

Simmer is characterized by the audible passage of a gas or vapor across the


seating surfaces just prior to "pop". The difference between this "start to open
pressure" and the set pressure is simmer, and is generally expressed as a
percentage of set pressure,

designed and manufactured in accordance with API Std. 2000.

The Pressure Relief Devices intended for storage tanks designed for low
internal pressures shall be sized and set so that at the rated capacity of the
devices, the internal pressure of each tank under any normal Operating
condition shall not exceed the internal design pressure or the maximum
design pressure.

The P\W intended use on atmospheric and low pressure tanks for pressure
and vacuum release shall be spring-loaded type.

The P W intended to be installed on atmospheric and low pressure tanks shall


be flanged type.

The type, minimum ratings, and class of the inlet /outlet flanges of the spring-
loaded flanged type P W intended for atmospheric and low pressure storage
tanks shall be, unless otherwise specified by KOC, ASME B 16.5, RF, 150 #
ratings. and the class shall be as per the KOC Piping Material Classes.

vacuum valve ( P W ) with or without a flame-arresting device as required by
KOC. The Relief devices equipped with a weight and lever arrangement shall
not be used.

The P W shall be designed such that in the event of failure of any of its
essential parts, the P W shall never fail to protect the tank on which it is
installed.

P W valves specified here shall be used on atmospheric and low pressure


storage tanks in which petroleum or petroleum products are stored.

In addition to several provisions for emergency venting, such as use of


additional P W , or a gauge hatch that permits the cover to lift under abnormal
internal pressure, a frangible roof-to-shell attachment, as described in API
Stand~ird650, is most imperative.

The hlanufacturer / Contractor shall ensure that the requirements for a


frangible roof-to-shell attachment, as specified in API 650, are strictly followed
and met.

The materials of P W and its associated piping shall be selected from the
KOC Piping Material Classes based on the stored product and the service
conditions to which the P W and its piping are intended to operate.

PRD: Thermal Relief Valves

The thermal relief valve shall be installed on all such sections of the pipeline
carrying liquid hydrocarbons, wherein the liquid is fully blocked or stranded,
and is subjected expansion due to rise in environment, resulting in the rise of
internal pressure that may exceed the maximum allowable operating pressure.

This shall not cover the expansion of liquids in the piping or pipelines due to
fire contingencies.

This shall not cover insulated or buried piping/pipelines which normally


operat~at above the ambient temperature.

The thermal relief valve shall be installed in the following conditions, unless
otherwise required by KOC:

On each section of the cross-country pipelines between main line


l~lock-valves,when the above ground length of pipe exceeds 10% of
the total length of that section.

On each section of above grade plant piping carrying liquid which is


blocked-in or stranded by tight closing valves and blinds, unless the
:sum of the cross-sectional flow area of non-blinded , conventional
wedge gate valves exceeds the liquid volume of the section divided by
60 meter.

3 n the piping in the heat exchanger in which the liquid is blocked and
qeated between the block valves.

On that section of piping which lies between the storage tanks, or in the
tank farm, in whkh the liquid is stranded and heated between the block
valves.

The set pressure of the thermal relief valve shall not exceed 110% of the
maximum allowable operating pressure for the maximum temperature during
shut iri, considering pipe hoop stress, combined stress, flange ratings, and
any other weakest component in the system.

The location of the thermal relief valve on sections of cross country pipeline
shall be selected by KOC based on accessibility, valve safety, and
parameters.

The thermal relief valves which are not located within a fenced area shall be
provided with suitable cover to prevent tampering or damage.

The o ~ ~ t l eoft thermal relief valve which releases hydrocarbons or toxic


liquids/vapors inside a plant area shall be piped to a closed piping system.

The outlet of thermal relief valve installed on the pipelines, which releases
hydrocarbons or other liquids/vapors shall discharge at the grade or as
required by KOC.

The th~trmalrelief valve shall not be less than % in, size.

Isolatic~nBlock Valves and Car-Seals: Requirements

The block valves shall be used as isolation valves in combination with PRV to
facilitate in PRV maintenance, replacement, or other purposes.

In case the block valves are not available, then as an alternative, the gate
valves may be used for isolation purposes provided they are installed with
stems crriented horizontally or if this is not feasible then the stem should be
oriented downward to a maximum of 45 degrees from the horizontal in order
to keep the gate from falling off and blocking the passage of flow.

The isolation block valves shall be provided with appropriate Car-Seal Open
facility.

The Csr-Seal intended to be used shall be strong enough to resist any


ordinary mechanical shock or blow and shall not be able to be removed when
installed in place and locked open, unless physically cut by a wire cutter or by
