HIPPS Solutions: Reliable, Flexible Pressure Protection
In light of increasingly strict environmental regulations, it is important to minimize emissions wherever possible. High-integrity pressure protection systems (HIPPS) prevent over-pressurization of pipelines by shutting off the source of high pressure. In contrast to conventional relief systems, HIPPS solutions contain excess fluids or gasses in the system instead of releasing them. This increases safety, reduces losses, and prevents emissions, ensuring your plant complies with regulations.
