BRECKSVILLE, Ohio -- Farris Engineering Services’ iPRSM product has been awarded a US patent, with a second application approved for award.

iPRSM is a multi-functional software package for designing, auditing, and documenting the pressure relieving capability of process systems in the petroleum, petrochemical, hydrocarbon processing, refining, and power generation industries. The software supports process system engineers in maximizing the safety of personnel, processes, and facilities, minimizing operational interruptions and losses related to overpressure and documenting changes to pressure relief systems, the company says.

The patented web-based product allows iPRSM to be deployed company-wide for design and sizing of overpressure equipment, safety and change management, and regulatory documentation. With many users of the product at multiple locations being able to view and work on the process system in real time, iPRSM protects the system’s integrity by preventing duplication of engineering changes or the implementation of conflicting changes.

When applied to evergreen system design, iPRSM can integrate equipment, instruments, piping and pressure relief devices across multiple locations to create a protected system. Applied to existing systems, iPRSM creates a centralized engineering drawing/document repository, a pressure-relief database that includes as-operating data from all sites, and a task list for addressing concerns.
