Aug 23 2017 · PSV Safety Valve Setting Example. If MAWP of a boiler is 200 Psi & we want to install 3 PSV valves two on the drum and one on the super heater the setting will be as according to ASME codes. One safety valve will be set at the pressure of 200 psi second at 206 psi (3%) at the drum. Super Heater safety valve pressure will be set at 185.4 (10% 206-20.6) (range 206×10/100)
Oct 08 2013 · In connection with the superheater the safety valves on the boiler drum are to be set at a pressure not less than the superheater-valve setting plus 0.34 bar (0.35 kgf/cm2 5 psi) plus approximately the normal-load pressure drop through the superheater.
To prevent damage to the superheater the drum safety valve shall be set at a pressure not less than that of the superheater safety valve setting plus 5 pounds minimum plus approximately the normal load pressure drop through the superheater and associated piping including the controlled desuperheater if
