How Is A Safety Valve Function?

A safety valve is a mechanical device designed to protect equipment, such as boilers, pressure vessels, or piping systems, from exceeding safe operating pressure limits. The function of a safety valve is to open and relieve excess pressure, preventing potential explosions or other catastrophic failures.

When the pressure inside the equipment exceeds the safe operating limit, the safety valve automatically opens and allows some of the fluid or gas to escape until the pressure returns to a safe level. This helps prevent damage to the equipment and the surrounding area and protects the people working nearby.

Safety valves are typically set to open at a predetermined pressure level and are carefully calibrated to ensure accurate and reliable operation. They are critical components in many industrial and commercial systems and are subject to strict regulatory standards to ensure their performance and reliability.

Safety valves from VD Valve are designed for high performance and reliability, and we undergo rigorous testing to ensure we meet or exceed the required standards. VD Valve has a team of experienced engineers who provide technical support and assistance to customers and can help with the selection, installation, and maintenance of their safety valves.
