Follow these top ten safety valve tips and make sure you’re protected
- Transport valves upright and never lift them by the easing lever
- Safety valves should always be installed with the bonnet vertically upward
- Always set at least a 0.1 bar margin between blowdown pressure and system operating pressure to ensure tight shut off
- Always seal the valve against tampering. Sealing wire and a lead seal are most commonly used
- On steam systems always ensure that no condensate can collect on the upstream side of the valve disc
- Before first lifting an installed valve, always flush the system first. Dirt in the system can damage the valve seat
- For steam and gases the discharge pipework should rise, and for liquids it should fall. Rising discharge pipework must be drained
- Repairing, refurbishing and even resetting valves must be done only by authorized personnel
- To cut discharge noise use a large diameter discharge pipe or insulate it, but never insulate the safety valve itself
- Regularly use the lifting lever to ensure the valve opens and minimize the risk of corrosion of mating surfaces
