Allows users to quickly and easily design safety systems that assess a runaway chemical reaction and to determine the best and safest relief-venting method
New software helps reduce the frequency and consequences of
runaway reaction-generated accidents.
Fauske and Associates (FAI)
announces the release of its latest Reactivity Management
Software (RMS) for the design of relief systems and effluent
RMS, a Windows-based software program, allows users to
quickly and easily design safety systems that assess a runaway
chemical reaction and to determine the best and safest
The design of emergency venting
requirements for vapor, gassy and hybrid systems can be made
based on the Design Institute for Emergency Relief Systems
(Diers) two-phase flow methodology and its extensions.
also includes a deflagration vent sizing module applicable to
both low and high pressure venting consistent with latest NFPA-68
Other features of RMS include a user-friendly
interface, benchmarking against actual data and the ability to
perform sensitivity analyses.
The software's design
methodology also fully complies with the US Occupational Safety
and Health Agency's regulation OSHA-29 CFR 1910.119 PSM.
"The design of methods and systems that help keep the
process of reactive- chemistry safe by preventing accidents is an
essential part of FAI's business," said Kris Fauske,
FAI's vice-president of operations and chemical systems.
"We are pleased to be able to offer our customers a new,
cost-effective, software solution that can help them design
emergency relief systems, fully compliant with current OSHA
