Effectively managing pressure in hydrocarbon-based production processes is critical from a safety, environmental and efficiency standpoint. Pressure relief devices (PRDs) are found throughout the production processing equipment. At last spring’s 115th American Fuel & Petrochemical Manufacturers (AFPM) Annual Meeting in San Antonio, Texas, Emerson’s Marcio Donnangelo and Marcos Peluso wrote an article, Comply with environmental […]
