Every process flow application experiences variations in pressure, which can positively or adversely impact the end product result. Beyond affecting the product, undue pressure can pose significant safety risks, damage critical equipment, and lead to costly product losses. Pressure relief valves, therefore, stand as a cornerstone of safety in process flow systems, storage devices, and transportation setups.
Unlike many pressure management systems reliant on power, pressure relief valves derive their function from the process fluid itself. They act as a fail-safe, ensuring operational safety even during power failures. Given their crucial role, these valves must be simple in mechanics yet reliable and versatile in diverse process flow applications.
