The High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS) is a mechanical and electrical system designed in order to reduce the risk of over pressurization. This system is a specific application of the Safety Instrumented System (SIS).
The functions of a HIPPS is to protect downstream equipment against over pressure conditions upstream. This is achieved by quickly isolating the source causing the over pressure. More specifically, two in-series dedicated safety shut-off valves close to prevent further pressurization of downstream piping.
High Integrity Pressure Protection System (HIPPS) Benefits
- Weight and cost reduction for piping and vessels downstream the HIPPS
- Increased capacity/throughout in the flow line applications
- Transportation and storage cost reduction due to volume and weights reduction
