This chapter is about learning to become familiar with the layout and contents of API 576: Inspection of Pressure-Relieving Devices. Similar to API 572, API 576 is a well-established document (it is still on its 2000 edition) with its roots in earlier documents published by the American refining industry. It is more a technical guide document rather than a code, as such, but it does perform a useful function in supporting the content of API 510.

8.1 Introduction to API 576
8.2 API 576 sections 3 and 4: types (definitions) of pressure-relieving devices
8.3 Types of pressure-relieving device
8.4 API 576 section 5: causes of improper performance
8.5 API 576 section 6: inspection and testing
8.6 API 576 familiarization questions
