Accident Classified As: Below Reportable Quantity (BRQ)
The plant was in the process of repairing a pressure transmitter. When the transmitter was isolated for repair, this inadvertently caused an over pressure of the system.
DUring the over pressure, the relief valves on the system opened as designed. The relief valves vented through the low pressure scrubber system and then to the air.
