Pressure Control & Relief Valves

The thermoplastic pressure relief valve protects equipment and systems against over-pressures or sudden pressure surges. Able to handle highly corrosive or ultra-pure liquids, the relief valve prevents pumps from dead-heading due to unexpected shut-offs downstream (also known as a bypass relief valve). It maintains back pressure in closed-loop systems to make pumps run more smoothly (also known as a back pressure valve).
