Rapid Gas Decompression (RGD) is a familiar problem in the oil and gas industry and other high pressure gas applications. It has been reported in all types of fluid handling devices, including valves, blow-out preventers.
RGD is commonly known as explosive decompression, an operational condition during which the applied system pressure is quickly released, resulting in the expansion of absorbed gas damaging elastomeric seals. However, the prefix "explosive" can be misleading, since decompression damage can occur even when pressure is let down gradually over many hours.
