Series RVS relief valves utilize a soft seat design for reliable venting of gases at set pressures from 1500 psi (103 bar) to 20000 psi (1378 bar). The operating temperature range is 32°F (0°C) to 400°F (204°C).
The soft seat design provides bubble tight sealing, repeatable pop-off, and reseat. Additionally, soft seat valves provide a higher cycle life than metal seat relief valves.
These precision valves are designed for pressure gas systems, where zero leakage is critical. They are not recommended for liquid nitrogen or liquid carbon dioxide, which produce gas at cryogenic temperatures upon relief.
Relief valves are designed to open proportionally to increasing pressure. Therefore, they are not recommended for applications requiring immediate full valve flow at set pressure (such as decompositions, polymerizations, etc.). Full flow of relief valve is defined at 10% over set pressure.
Options: Autoclave Engineers can supply various inlet and outlet connections on special order.
1. AE relief valves are preset and factory sealed. Warranty is voided if seal is broken by customer.
2. Maximum system operating pressure should not exceed 90% of relief valve set pressure. Operating pressures in excess of this may cause weepage resulting in damage to the plug and seat.
Ordering Instructions: To permit prompt and correct responses to your order, we will require the following information: quantity, valve catalog number, service requirements (liquid, gas & vapor), set pressure (PSIG - bar), and service temperature range.
