Devices to protect refrigeration systems from excess pressure.

DUAL SAFETY VALVE COMBINATIONS

Devices to protect refrigeration systems and their components from excess pressure. The arrangement comprises of one 3-way valve and two safety valves dependent or independent on back pressure.

WVR-SVU, WVR-SVA Dual Safety Valves and WVR SVA / SVU Dual Safety Valves with Chain Drive

GEA dual safety relief valves are designed for installation in the refrigerant cycles of industrial refrigeration systems. The safety valves which are dependent of back pressure protect refrigeration systems and their components from excess pressure (see also EN 378 part 2). They comply with the technical regulations of the German Technical Control Board (TÜV) and with AD2000 regulations. Once the set response pressure is reached GEA safety valves begin to open. They open within a 10 % pressure increase until the designed limit of the lift is reached. When the pressure drops again they start closing once the set response pressure is reached. They close completely within a pressure drop of 10 % below the set response pressure. The 3-way valve enables easy checks and maintenances of the safety valves without the system’s operation to be interrupted. One of the two outlet nozzles is always open whereas the other one is closed. So one safety valve can be inspected or even disassembled while the other one remains in service to protect the system.

WVR AL SVA / SVU Dual Safety Valves

They are available with safety valves either back pressure dependent or independent to protect the refrigeration systems and their components from excess pressure (see also EN 378 part 2). They comply with AD2000 regulations. After their initial response GEA safety valves open within 10 % of pressure increase up to the designed limitation. They close within a pressure drop of 10 % below the response pressure. The 3-way valve enables easy checks and maintenances of the safety valves without the system’s operation to be interrupted. One of the two outlet nozzles is always open whereas the other one is closed. So one safety valve can be checked or removed while the other one remains in service to protect the system. The compact design of the WVR AL requires minimum space and enables horizontal and vertical assembly. Compared to steel and stainless steel valve types the weight could be reduced by up to 30 % by using salt-water resistant aluminum EN AW-6082 as body material.
