Catalog excerpts

Back Pressure Regulator/Relief Valve Maintain Constant Flow to Your Analyzers  Designed specifically for power plant sample flow rates When installed in a system as shown below, the Back Pressure Regulator/Relief Valve (BPRV) will hold a constant pressure of approximately 20 psig (1.4 barg) at the analyzer inlet. This pressure is maintained independent of source pressure fluctuations or sample flow changes. If inlet pressure rises, the regulator opens to let excess flow pass through to drain. This flow is usually used as the grab sample. This unit also acts as a relief valve in the event of an over-pressure condition.  Most effective way to assure constant flow through online analyzers  Less prone to plugging and sticking than a pressure reducing valve  Will not wire draw or erode in normal service  Fail safe relief valve Constant Flow With the circuit below, the severe service (pressure reduction) is handled by the VREL® or needle valve. The BPRV only has to control pressure between 20 psig (1.4 barg) and atmosphere. This allows very precise pressure control, minimizes plugging and ensures high reliability.

BACK PRESSURE REGULATOR/RELIEF VALVE Operation In the normal mode of operation, there should always be a flow from the exhaust port. This flow will increase with rising source pressures and decrease with falling source pressures, unless the VREL® is reset to maintain the total line flow at the set point. The Sentry valve also functions as a fail safe relief valve. The relieving capacity exceeds that of the most commonly used 1/4" relief valve. Since the BPRV is always in service, a malfunction is immediately evident. A relief valve can freeze with no outward indication until it fails to...
