Safety Relief Valve- Selection, Operation & Troubleshooting


Within the boiler, piping and pressure vessel industry, safety relief valves are of most essential importance. Pressure relief valves are the last line of defense against catastrophic failure or even loss of life. The course covers safety valve types and designs, materials, specification and selection, preventive maintenance procedures, operation and troubleshooting.

A number of different instructional methods are used throughout the course to allow interactive learning and to give practical examples from manufacturing and service industry to enable the delegates to operate, select and troubleshoot safety valves upon course completion.


Process engineers involved in design, selection and operation of plants. Mechanical, inspection, maintenance engineers. Technicians involved in operation, inspection, maintenance, troubleshooting of piping systems & valves. Plant and equipment design engineers working with engineering/Construction, process plant and equipment.

Delegates will gain essential and integrated knowledge about pressure equipment and piping systems design and the significance of appropriate design, operation and maintenance on their mechanical integrity.


Upon the successful completion of the course, participants will be able to:

  • Familiarize participants with the functions and applications of safety relief valves, their types, designs and components.

  • Train participants to install, disassemble, troubleshoot, clean, inspect, align, and reassemble a variety of Safety valves

  • Enable appropriate safety valve sizing and selection for liquid, gas and vapor applications

  • To increase the participant’s awareness and understanding that the mechanical integrity of relief valves depends jointly on the proper design, operation, condition assessment, and maintenance of the equipment.

  • To provide the participants with a clear understanding of the degradation mechanisms that relief valves could be subjected to over their operating life, how to identify them, predict and determine their impact, and what appropriate measures can be taken to prevent and control the resultant damage.

  • To provide the participants with the knowledge and failure analysis skills they need to conduct damage and failure analysis so as to prevent similar failures from happening
