Dear All,

 

Can anyone suggest if there is any permissible limits during PSV design calculation? I have seen vendor data sheet having noise level higher than 100 dBA at 1 m or 100 ft. Is it alright to have such device or there is any check?

 

Thanks in advance, 

Shantanu.

Hi Shantanu,

 

You should also check the statutory requirement as well. If the sound levels are more than permissible, then I silencer needs to be fitted at the PSV discharge.

 

I guess your PSV is on steam system :P

Hi,

 

You may ask your mechanical department for a specification on Noise levels. If you are doing an Indian project, then you can search CPCB (Central Pollution Control Board) Norms or State Board Norms

 

Regards

Normally i have seen limits of 80 to 85 dBA at 1 m from source & < 70 dBA at fence.

 

As per API 521, you might not do anything for PSV discharge noise as emergency relief is typically infrequent and of short duration.

As per Indian Oil industry safety guidelines silencers shall not be used as they are likely to block the outlet due to fouling, instead acoustic insulation shall be provided on vent lines.

For atmospheric discharge

Thank you. from the attached documents of F & W guidelines, it looks likes permissible limits followed by them is relative & not fixed. Can we refer table no. 3, 4 & 5 which relates sound power level with sound pressure level to come at considerable number for such limit?
