SizeMaster Mark IV - Pressure Relief Valve Engineering Software

Farris Engineering's SizeMaster Mark IV pressure relief valve engineering software for Windows brings unprecedented integration of standard engineering practice to the job of sizing and selecting pressure relief valves.

Based on Section VIII of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code and API standard 521, with support for ASME Sections I and III, SizeMaster calculates the pressure relief valve orifice area required to relieve any process scenario or combination of scenarios (such as blocked flow, fire vapor generation, or liquid expansion), under best-case and worst-case conditions.
