Pressure Relief Valves

Pressure Relief Valves allow a tank to vent (breathe out) during filling, emptying and when thermal effects require.

Spring/Weight Operated

73Key Features of the Groth Pressure Relief Valve include;

 Key Features
  • Market leading sealing performance - API2000 states that a valve should hold 75% of its set point at constant flow of 15l / hour – Groth’s production standard is 90% in models up to and including 6”
  • Self Draining Pallets prevent build up of water and potential to freeze shut/open
  • Air cushion seat design creates superior seal and is less prone to sticking than o-ring type seals
  • There are no elastomers in Groth valves as they break down over time in common applications

 

As with all Groth equipment, their Pressure Relief Valves are manufactured to the highest standards and offer market leading performance and longevity.
