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.
The number following those initials is apo device number, which uniquely identifies the particular safety device for a particular process component. Figure 1 The mnemonic following the device number is the process component description, which can be found in Table 2.

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 recent years government regulations spi exerted an increasing influence on the techniques of engineering analysis and design, which has produced such documents as API-RPC.
In identifying a process component care should be taken to make sure the device is properly described. Proceedings of an international conference Diverless and Deepwater Techology: In the example given, MBD stands for pressure vessel separator, and this tag would be used when describing a production separator.
A typical device identification tag number performs two major functions: Peer reviewed only Published between: Rock Mechanics Symposium and 5th U.

In process component with its proper mnemonic. This paper describes the proper procedures for using API-RPC and shows how it differs from today’s industry standards. The mnemonic letters “PSV” used in the example stand for pressure safety valve.
The mnemonic following the device number is the process component description, which can be found ep Table 2.
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. Thus, a safety device identification code can not only identify the type of device, but also what process component it protects.

This paper also illustrates the most 114c ways to the best of the author’s knowledge to use API-RPC without compromising its purpose. Society of Petroleum Engineers Disciplines 4. Proceedings of an International Conference Submersible Technology: 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.
The last four digits of this safety 114c identification uniquely identify the process component, and are used at the designers’ discretion. For an example of this number’s application, consider two relief valves on one production separator.
