HIPS is used to mitigate overpressure scenarios when: 1) a conventional PRD is not practical or possible, 2) a conventional PRD will not be reliable or 3) a conventional PRD will work but will result in high treatment cost. In addition, HIPS can also used to limit the required relief size by limiting the operating window of the process. The purpose of this paper is provide several practical examples on the use of HIPS within Dow and to describe some of the challenges and associated strategies to insure successful implementation and sustained process safety performance.
