The relief capacity for a safety valve depends on
A safety relief valve must be capable of relieving the capacity of the connected compressor(s) at operating pressure. Note that the relief pressure can not be set higher than the maximum rated working pressure of any equipment in the system. If the operating pressure is right below the relief pressure of the valve the valve may start leaking.
A "rule of thumb" is to set the relief pressure 10% above the working pressure of the system.
