What's new in Salus?

Posted by Chris Heflin on Jul 20, 2021 10:22:56 AM

Inlet Stability

With the rise in attention to inlet pressure losses and device stability, we are doing our part by including inlet stability alongside device sizing in Salus. As an optional add on, force balance and critical line length analysis can be included to help determine the stability of devices with high inlet pressure losses - potentially negating the need for expensive piping modifications in the field.

Additionally, the relief device details page has been expanded to include the necessary physical data from NB-18 and manufacturer catalogs that is used in the calculations.

 Safety Knowledge Should be Share...

“It should not be necessary for each generation to rediscover the principles of process safety which the generation before discovered. We must learn from the experience of others rather than learn the hard way. We must pass on to the next generation a record of what we have learned.” - Jesse C. Ducommun, Safety Pioneer
As Process Safety engineers and consultants, we believe our unique position creates a responsibility for Smith & Burgess to share our years of accumulated safety knowledge.
