South American Valve is the forefront Safety Valve Supplier in Mexico (Válvula de seguridad) Extending our supply to Brazil, Colombia, Peru, and Chile.It is a mechanical device designed to prevent excessive pressure buildup within a closed system, such as a boiler, pressure vessel, or pipeline. When pressure inside the system exceeds the safe limit, the safety valve opens, allowing the release of fluid or gas until pressure returns to a safe level. This prevents potential explosions or damage to the system.

A safety valve is a crucial component in many industrial systems, designed to automatically release excess pressure within a vessel or system to prevent catastrophic failure. South American Valve is the best  Safety Valve Supplier in Mexico (Válvula de seguridad)

Now let us see how does a safety valve work?

The main body of a safety valve is typically made of metal and is connected to the system or vessel from which excess pressure needs to be relieved. The disc is a crucial component that covers the valve opening. It is held in place by a spring or other means and is designed to “pop” open when the pressure exceeds a predetermined set point.

Spring: The spring is responsible for holding the disc in the closed position. The force exerted by the spring opposes the force created by the pressure within the system. The set point is the predetermined pressure level at which the safety valve is designed to open and start relieving pressure. This value is carefully calibrated based on the design specifications and the requirements of the system.

 During normal operation, the pressure within the system is below the set point, and the disc remains firmly pressed against the valve seat, preventing the escape of fluids or gases.  If the pressure within the system exceeds the set point, the force exerted by the pressure overcomes the force of the spring, causing the disc to lift off its seat.As the disc lifts, the valve opens, allowing the excess fluid or gas to be discharged from the system, preventing a dangerous build-up of pressure.
