Overpressure Protection in the Process Industry: A Critical View provides a practical and pragmatic guidance for anyone dealing with overpressure protection in the process industry. The book explains the background of complicated international codes and regulations, offering a pragmatic and practical approach on how these codes can be interpreted for specific cases. The book also gives a critical view on these codes and regulations and where they do or don't make sense, along with the challenges in some instances, including technical and practical argumentations.

Finally, the book covers specific problem areas and sizing methods when using safety relief devices as overpressure protection, such as how to handle installation, backpressures, blowdowns, the 3% rule, types of chatter and other destructive forces in relief devices.
