A properly designed HIPPS system can substantially reduce CO2 emissions as well as the size and cost of an associated flare system.
High Integrity Pressure Protection Systems are designed to enhance or replace over pressure protection traditionally addressed with mechanical relief and flare systems.
Unlike a mechanical relief or flare system, a HIPPS system is designed to close the valves and isolate the process at its source when an over-pressurization event is detected. This eliminates the loss of product and fugitive emissions associated with relief systems.
HIPPS has a relatively low-cost compared to the total installed and commissioned cost of a flare system and the associated header piping.
