CASE STUDY

Replacement Of Fail Prv

Industry

Tank Farm

Background

Pressure reduction valve for process

Highlights
  • PRV not working as no temperature difference was observed
  • Safety valve blowing steam continuously
Energy Conservation Measure
  • Replace malfunctioning PRV so as to reduce steam consumption
Explanation

Presently the PRV of FO tank farm is passing this can be indicated in the img below as the outlet and inlet temperatures of PRV are same. As per standard steam engineering practises steam should be utilized at low pressure as latent heat content is high at low pressure.
