PRVs: Purpose, functionality, application.
Pressure Relief Valves are a safety device designed to protect a pressurized vessel or system during an overpressure event. An overpressure event refers to any condition which would cause pressure in a vessel or system to increase beyond specified the design pressure or maximum allowable working pressure (MAWP). The Pressure Relief Valve relieves prevents overpressure events by allowing the pressurised fluid or gas to flow from an auxiliary passage out of the system.
