Classification and structural characteristics of safety valves

A safety valve is a valve-type overpressure relief device consisting of three main parts: seat, disc and loading mechanism. It is an automatic valve that USES the pressure of the medium itself to discharge a nominal amount of overpressure fluid through the opening of the disc to prevent the pressure in the device from exceeding […]

Do you know the pressure test methods for various valves? (with dynamic map)

In general, strength tests of industrial valves are not taken during use, but the valve body and bonnet that are corroded or repaired should take strength tests. For safety valves, the constant pressure, return pressure and other tests should comply with the specifications and relevant regulations. Valve strength and seal tests should be performed on […]

What is a flapper valve

A Flapper valve is a check valve that contains a spring-loaded plate or flapper that allows the unidirectional fluid or gas flow and provides high performance sealing capabilities. It seals the opening when the fluid tries to flow back. The valve creates a watertight seal in storage tanks and ensures safe operations when used in […]
