Pressure-relief valves

March 30, 2003




The H5600A 1/2-in. by 3/4-in. pressure-relief valves are now available with 400 psig pressure settings. Matching rupture disc assemblies, also with 400 psig pressure settings, are available to indicate which pressure-relief valve has discharged. The valves are designed to provide emergency relief from excessive pressure in refrigerant-containing vessels. After discharge, these valves will attempt to reseat to minimize loss of refrigerant.
