Safety valves are important accessories for hydraulic accumulators. These valves prevent overpressure by acting as a pressure relief valve. They come in electric and manual varieties. Their design meets the requirements of the European Pressure Equipment Directive. Besides, these valves are easy to install. They also provide excellent opening and closing characteristics.
These valves are multifunctional and are placed between the hydraulic accumulator and the operating system. They act as a pressure relief valve and emergency shut-off device. They protect against overpressurization and system failure. They are also a space-saving device. By using them, you can easily isolate your hydraulic system.
The internal valve block is the first line of defense in case of accumulator rupture. It controls the energy state of the accumulator and locks the valve for service or maintenance. This prevents any unintended pressure from building up in the accumulator. The valve block also prevents any pressure that may build up in the accumulator from draining directly into the tank. A solenoid valve is another optional safeguard.
