Safety valves are commonly used in gas and steam systems to relieve excess pressure before it can cause injuries or equipment damage. Safety valves open quickly to release large volumes of gas or steam. This course is divided into two sections.
Section 1: Types of Safety Valves, covers the concept of pressure and how it is measured and explores methods of relieving excess pressure through use of a rupture disc systems, relief valve systems, and safety valves.
Section 2: Safety Valve Maintenance describes troubleshooting and basic maintenance procedures for a typical safety valve. The section consists of three parts: External Inspection Disassembly and Inspection Reassembly and Testing.
