SuperChems for DIERS is an advanced software tool for pressure relief design.
This new program replaces the SAFIRE computer program and incorporates the
latest DIERS pressure relief design techniques and research findings.
SuperChems for DIERS contains many productivity tools for engineers responsible
for pressure relief design. Multiphase, reacting, and highly non-ideal systems
can easily be modeled using SuperChems. Dynamic vessel simulations involving
two-phase or all vapor flow can be performed in either design mode or rating
mode. Complex arrangements of relief lines including multiple segments for
inlet and outlet lines with relief valves and/or rupture disks can be rated for
single phase or two-phase flow. SuperChems contains a large database of more
than 1,200 industrial chemicals. SuperChems uses a spreadsheet-based interface
for inputs and reporting results and users can work with their choice of units.

Emergency Relief System
Design Using DIERS Technology
OSHA (29 CFR 1910.119) has recognized AIChE / DIERS two-phase flow publications
as examples of "good engineering practice" for process safety management of
highly hazardous materials. The prediction of when two-phase flow venting will
occur, and the applicability of various sizing methods for two-phase
vapor-liquid flashing flow is of particular interest when designing emergency
relief systems to handle runaway reactions. This comprehensive sourcebook
brings together a wealth of information on methods that can be used to safely
size emergency relief systems for two-phase vapor-liquid flow for flashing or
frozen, viscous or non-viscous fluids. Design methodologies are illustrated by
selected sample problems. Written by industrial experts in the safety field,
this book will be invaluable to those charged with operating, designing, or
managing today's and tomorrow's chemical process industry facilities.
