Safety Valve
Cause: A level controller went bad on a hot separator, causing a safety valve to release. The root cause of this event was a plugged level instrument that resulted in high unit pressures.


Notes: Upon discovery of the venting, the level instrument controls were bypassed. This allowed unit pressures to return to normal which ended the release.
