Re: [PipingDesign] VENT LINE BEVELLING OF SAFETY VALVE DISCHARGE

Shanavas,
People tell the following reasons:
We have been doing this since ages.
It is to increase the area of the exit to reduce the forces. It makes it clear that the pipe is intended to be like this and it is not some unfinished forgotten pipe yet to be welded. To discourage the birds to make nest.
So what do you like out of these?

Dear Sir,

Why the vent line of safety valve is bevelled? For horizontal exit,it may be to avoid foriegn particles..but i have seen for vertical exit also..could u clear me whether it is to reduce the discharge thrust?

Best regards
Shanavas
