The pressure vessel or any pressure holding equipment has a possibility to produce a forced stream in the condition of excess pressure than its limitations through the pressure relief valve area, it has a risk of the steam hammer or hydraulic shock, which is a major issue that the engineers need to take under consideration. Steam hammer is a phenomenon that leads to the sudden increase of pressure due to an increase of temperature in equipment or pressure storage vessels, which can affect pipes, valves, and gauges in any water, gas, or oil applications due to the sudden transient event which may cause a catastrophic disaster. The installation of a steam hammer reduction, a shock absorber with a rupture disk will decrease the impact of the steam hammer on pipes, valves, and gauges.
