Pressure/Vacuum Relief Valve

Pilot-operated diaphragm valve

Función y Descripción

The PM/F type pilot-controlled PROTEGO® diaphragm valve is a highly developed valve for pressure and vacuum relief. It is primarily used as a safety device for outbreathing in tanks, containers, and process engineering equipment and it also offers reliable protection from vacuum and overpessure. It prevents the intake of air and unacceptable product vapor loss up to the set point. The valve can also be used as inbreathing valve. The main valve is directly controlled when it is exposed to a vacuum; e.g., it functions as a weight-loaded diaphragm valve.

The main valve is controlled by a pilot valve. The pilot valve is controlled by the tank pressure. The tank medium does not continuously flow through the pilot. The set pressure is adjusted by stretching or relaxation of a spring.

As the operating pressure increases, the closing force acting on the main valve also rises; e.g. the valve tightness increases to prevent leakage until the set pressure is reached. After the valve responded within 10% pressure rise, it immediately opens completely, and the nominal volumetric flow is discharged through a fully open valve. If this level is exceeded, the pressure increase follows the performance curve. Up to the set pressure, the tank pressure is maintained with a tightness that is far superior to the conventional standard due to the superior manufacturing technology. This feature is achieved by valve seats made of high-grade stainless steel with precisely ground valve pallets. After the excess pressure is discharged, the valve reseats and again provides a tight seal.

Características especiales y ventajas

  • controlled by corrosion-resistant control valve
  • the tank medium does not continuously flow through the pilot valve
  • 10% technology for minimum pressure rise up to full lift
  • extreme tightness and hence least possible product losses and reduced environmental pollution
  • set pressure is close to full lift pressure, which results in high level of design freedom and product savings
  • the control diaphragm of the main valve is shielded from low temperatures - high-level durability
  • high flow capacity
  • can be used in areas subject to an explosion hazard
  • self draining
