TUV / IICS 2.6 Certified Pressure Relief Valves Inspector

(formally as Safety Relief Valves Inspector)


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, codes & standards and designs, materials, specification and selection, sizing, installation & testing, 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, size, install, test and troubleshoot safety valves upon course completion.

Safety Relief Valve Sizing Software “ Valvestar “ from LESER Germany will be demonstrated for sizing & selection of relief valves. (Sizing of Safety Valves as per codes, two phase flow / fire case as per API, pressure loss, back pressure, reaction forces, noise level). Pentair PRV Size Software will demonstrated for sizing Relief Valves.


Course Objective

  • Familiarize participants with the functions and applications of safety relief valves, their types, designs and components.
  • Enable appropriate safety valve sizing and selection for liquid, gas and vapor applications
  • Train participants to install, inspect, test & troubleshoot a variety of safety valves.
  • 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.
  • To understand requirements of industry codes / standards and approval authorities.
  • In-situ Testing Techniques – Onsite Testing of Safety Relief Valves.
  • Emerging Technologies in Pressure Relieving Devices
  • Use Valve Star / PRV size software for Safety Relief Valve Sizing & selection from Leser and CROSBY.
