Not knowing the answers to these questions, the best that comes to mind is to wrap more neoprene insulation on the refrigerant pipe and put some on the non-insulated return pipe. Follow this by refilling the wall cavity with a Rockwool batt, which is denser than fiberglass and more sound absorbing while also providing good thermal insulation.
Also, installing the PSV on the building return pipe will not change plant operation and pressure control.
This outage was needed to cut the 350-mm (14-in.) diameter ERW return pipe (prior to the cooling tower heat exchanger) to install a control valve between the existing taps intended for the 7.5-MW and 10-MW (25.6 and 34 million Btu/h, respectively) future upgrades (many years out) in order to minimize HPC production downtime.
