Today's complex industrial plants can pose many risks of fire, explosions, and other hazardous incidents if proper safety mechanisms are not in place. Of particular concern are accidental gaseous emissions that jeopardize the health of workers and the facility itself. This guide explains the latest engineering and administrative options available for avoiding and controlling accidents, including how to set up reliable systems for preventing and mitigating accidental releases as well as how to evaluate the performance of these systems.Control valves that fail closed (spring- loaded). 2. Back-flow check valves. (These are not ... It should be noted that excess flow valves do not function at low to medium flow rates, so they should not be relied on for all possible leak scenarios.
