This paper describes the proper procedures for using API-RPC and shows how it differs from today’s industry standards. Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U.
Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: In recent years government regulations have exerted an increasing influence on the techniques of engineering analysis and design, which has produced such documents as API-RPC. API-RPC uses an associative method for tagging and identifying safety devices whereby a particular safety device is symbolically associated particular safety device is symbolically associated with the process component it protects.
In process component with its proper mnemonic. The intent of this recommended practice is to give the industry a standard procedure for analyzing the safety requirements needed on an offshore production facility. This paper also illustrates the most efficient ways to the best of the author’s knowledge to use API-RPC without compromising its purpose.
Proceedings of an international conference Subsea Controls and Data Acquisition ‘ It should be noted that a process component is any section of a process that can be isolated and analyzed independently, including such components as compressors, pressure vessels, and heaters.
Peer reviewed only Published between: 14v, a safety device identification code can not only identify the type of device, but also what process component it protects.
Abstract In recent years government regulations have exerted an increasing influence on the techniques of engineering analysis and design, which has produced such documents as API-RPC. In the example given, MBD stands for pressure vessel separator, and this tag would be used when describing a production separator.
API-RPC, developed by the American Petroleum Institute exemplifies the effect of that influence on a procedure by which safety systems and controls on procedure by which safety systems and controls on offshore platforms are designed and installed.

For an example of this number’s application, consider two relief valves on one production separator. The number following those initials is the device number, which uniquely identifies the particular apj device for a particular process component.
The standard is rather lengthy and detailed in its information and, if not used properly, can seem ambiguous and difficult to apply, the intent being to form a fail safe system which is overprotected rather than underprotected. Sheriff’s Encyclopedic Dictionary of Applied Geophysics, fourth edition. In identifying a process component care should be taken to make sure the device is properly described.
The last four digits of this safety device identification uniquely identify the process component, and are used at the designers’ discretion.

A typical device identification tag number performs two major functions: The mnemonic following the device number is the process component description, which can be found in Table 2.
