You may look for a pressure relief valve for pressure vessels, pipelines, or other mechanisms. The primary function of a safety relief valve is to provide protection of property and life. Think about the following aspects while choosing the right safety relief valve for your requirements.

  1. Connection type and size;

What type of safety relief valve are you looking for? Will it be an internal type, external type, or angle type. If you plan to get a water pressure safety relief valve for pipelines, the angular type can be a suitable choice. For pressurized mechanical systems in the gas and oil sector, the pressure safety valve can be useful. Generally, external valves are used in applications like NH3 storage system, LPG storage system, etc.

Today, pressure relief valves are available with Teflon or Neoprene seats in sizes ranging from 6 mm to 150 mm. Among the numerous valve models available in the market, you need to identify the type that suits the compliance guidelines and regulatory standards of your intended application as well.

  1. Pressure

Valves are needed to handle the extreme pressure in a fluid discharge line. As the name goes, pressure relief valves should have pressure settings which can safely manage the pressure in the desired application. A pressure safety valve’s setting safeguards an industrial plant’s environment by automatically shutting off in the event of a leakage. With the help of a technical expert, you can find the ideal set pressure and backpressure varies as per the application.

  1. Temperatures

Study the environment in which the valve will be installed as external conditions such as weather can also affect the performance of the valve. The pressure settings and temperature compatibility depend on the process fluid and the phase of the process fluid that will pass through the safety relief valve.

  1. Materials

Pressure reducing valves can be made durable using materials such as stainless steel, carbon steel, or brass. As per the contents that will pass through your plan mechanism, you need to choose the material that will give high performance.

  1. Quality

When it comes to quality, product quality, and service quality, both are important. The design of the pressure safety relief valve should comply with the codes and standards for the industry that it is being used for. Also, a safety valve should be functional at all times. In case of a power failure, the safety relief valve’s mechanism should still be operational to prevent any mishaps.

When assessing product quality, you need to go through the certifications and test reports that confirm the quality of the product. Also, you may find the same product at different rates. Make sure that the price of the product is not the deciding factor as safety should be your primary concern. Also, remember high-quality products last longer and require low maintenance.

For service quality, look for reputed manufacturers who have excellent technical know-how in mechanical engineering. Knowledgeable manufacturers will make the testing, installation, replacement, and maintenance of the valves a smooth process.

Sizing, type, pressure, temperature, quality, and materials are some of the major aspects that you need to research while selecting a safety relief valve.
