What does a pressure relief valve do?

A relief valve is a highly important mechanism, created to protect the system when the pressure becomes too high. The purpose of a relief valve is to stop excessive pressure from building up by opening to give it a release point. When normal pressure is restored, the valve closes to allow the system to continue functioning. Overall, the pressure relief valve function is as a safety device, that is usually the last safety mechanism before accidents would occur. If the pressure relief valve failed, pressure levels would continue to increase and the outcome could be catastrophic.

The pressure relief valve function

Pressure relief valves are a vital part of many systems, and even some that you wouldn’t expect. Even household items such as your boiler, use pressure relief valves to stop them heating up too much and creating a potential danger. Pressure relief valves are also an important factor for industrial applications, preventing major accidents. A high-quality valve is necessary for a consistently functioning industrial system.

Parker HPRV Series Relief Valve

The aim of a pressure relief valve is to remove overpressure to ensure pressure within a system doesn’t exceed the pilot setting. The Parker HPRV valve operates using the same principle and provides an automatic protection mechanism for process instrumentation systems. The Parker high pressure relief valve is unique due to its ability to operate in an extremely wide pressure range, between (150 to 6000 psi, or 10.3 to 414 bar). The HPRV valve...
