How it Works

Closed
Resilient seal design prevents leakage.
Sealing efficiency increase with increased
pressure up to cracking pressure. Metal-tometal poppet stop supports spring load,
prevents sticking.

Note: Proper filtration is recommended to prevent damage to sealing surfaces.

Open
When system pressure overcomes spring
force, poppet opens. As pressure continues
to rise, variable orifice between poppet and
body increases, allowing greater flow.

Reseating
Resilient seal automatically establishes line
of contact with spherical seat. Seal provides
zero leakage at reseat.

Flow at Cracking Pressure
Elastomeric seals: 5cc/min
PTFE: 0.02 scfm

Leakage, Ascending Pressure


Standard seals: 0 to 95% of cracking pressure
Silicon & EPR: 0 to 80% of cracking pressure
PTFE:
Cracking pressures up to 2.4 psi: 4cc/min at 0 to 50% of
cracking pressure
Cracking pressures 2.5 psi and higher: 1cc/min at 0 to
reseat pressure, 10cc/min from reseat to 90% of
cracking pressures

Cracking Pressure Tolerance: 5%


Cracking pressure on initial crack may be higher than cracking pressure tolerance due to inherent characteristics of seals.
Cracking pressure tolerance will be greater than 5% if set
pressure is 1 psi. (Consult factory)

Leakage at Reseat Pressure


All elastomeric seals: Zero
PTFE: 1cc/min for cracking pressures 2.5 psi and higher
10 to 50 psi (0.7 3 bar)

How it Works

Closed
The specially-designed poppet seals on the
elastomeric O-ring. The increasing pressure
within the valve seals tightly against the
poppet and prevents leakage to 95% of
the cracking pressure. The metal-to-metal
stop, on the low pressure side, supports the
spring load and prevents seal deformations.

Note: Proper filtration is recommended to prevent damage to sealing surfaces.

Open
The excess pressure is vented instantly
when the system pressure overcomes the
spring force and opens the poppet. Large
flow passages, at the inlet and at the poppet opening, assure minimum pressure rise.

Reseating
Repeated, positive reseating occurs at better than 90% of the cracking pressure when
the spring action retracts the poppet, reestablishing the seal between the elastomeric
O-ring and the poppet shoulder.

Note: Proper filtration is recommended to prevent damage to sealing surfaces.

How it Works

Closed
The spring load is carried by a metal-tometal stop. The O-ring provides a leak-tight
seal. Sealing efficiency increases as the
pressure increases up to the cracking pressure.

Cracking
The ports in poppet open fully and eliminate rapid increase in the pressure. The flow
is throttled between the poppet shoulder
and the seat, which provides regularly
increasing flow area with increasing flow
rates.

The 5100 Series relief valve is adjustable to 15% of its nominal cracking pressure as follows:
1. Remove discharge line (in-line mounted unit) or override ring & rod (ASME type)
2. Break body joint by wrenching hexes. DO NOT USE PIPE WRENCH.
3. Insert proper size hex wrench (see table below) into the outlet end and turn clockwise to increase the cracking pressure, or
counterclockwise to decrease.
4. After adjustment, hold the hex wrench stationary relative to the inlet end and turn the body to tighten the joint.
5. Test adjusted unit for cracking pressure.

Terminology for ASME Safety Relief Valves

Safety Relief Valves


An automatic pressure relieving device
actuated by the static pressure upstream of
the valve, which opens in proportion to the
increase over the opening pressure.
Start-to-Leak Pressure
The pressure at the valve inlet where
the relieved fluid is first detected (on the
downstream side of the seat) before normal relieving action takes place
Opening Pressure (Set Pressure)
The valve inlet pop point pressure at which
there is a measurable lift or discharge
becomes continuous as determined by
seeing, hearing or feeling. In the pop type
of safety valve, it is the inlet pressure at
which the valve opens, allowing a larger

amount of fluid as compared with corresponding valve movements at higher or


lower pressures
Note: A safety relief valve is not considered to
open when it is simmering at a pressure just
below the popping point even though the
simmering may be audible. This set pressure
distinguishes our ASME relief valves from our
standard relief valves whose cracking pressure indicates initial flow.

Relieving Pressure
(Opening pressure plus overpressure) The
pressure measured at the valve inlet at
which the relieving capacity is determined.
Closing Pressure
(Reseat pressure) The pressure measured
at the valve inlet, at which the valve closes,

flow is substantially shut off, and there is


no measurable lift.
Seal-off Pressure
The pressure (measured at the valve inlet)
after closing at which no further gas is
detected at the downstream side of the
seat.
Operating Pressure
The actual pressure at which a vessel is
maintained in normal operation.
Accumulation
Pressure buildup or overpressure beyond
the set pressure of a safety relief valve, at
which capacity flow is rated. Capacities are
usually based on 10% accumulation.

Note: Please specify ASME when placing your order.

Recommended Installation

1. Before installing a new safety relief valve, we recommend that a pipe tap be used to assure clean-cut and uniform threads in the
vessel opening and to allow for normal hand engagement followed by a half to one turn by wrench.
2. Avoid over-tightening as this can distort the valve seat.
3. Avoid excess popping of the valve. Safety relief valves should only be operated often enough to assure they are in good
working order.
4. Apply only a moderate amount of pipe compound or tape to the threads, leaving the first thread clean parts.
5. Dont oversize the valve, as this may cause chatter resulting in rapid wear of the moving parts.
6. Avoid wire, cable, or chain pulls for attachments to levers that do not allow a vertical pull. The weight of these devices should
not be applied to the safety relief valve.
7. Avoid having the operation pressure too near the valve set pressure. A minimum differential of 10% is recommended.

Important

Complete part number MUST INCLUDE set pressure in psi. The ASME requires that valves be set at a pop point. The ASME refers
to this as the set pressure. This point is higher than the traditional Circle Seal Controls definition of cracking pressure.
After a prolonged period of storage with no system pressure, these relief valves will evidence an apparent high set pressure on
first pop; therefore, in receiving inspection tests, true set pressure should be determined after first pop.
The following Circle Seal Controls valves have been tested in accordance with procedures in Paragraph UG 131, Section V111 of
the ASME Unified Pressure Vessel Code:

How it Works
4
3
1
2
3A

Closed
In the closed position, the poppet (1) is impressed against
the orifice (2) by the spring and seals of the orifice. This
impression is limited by the poppet retainer (3) which
bottoms on the shoulder of the orifice nozzle unit at
point 3A. As system pressure rises, pressure within
the poppet retainer and above the poppet increases,
effecting further sealing efficiency. As pressure rises
above normal operating pressure, the poppet retainer
(3) moves upward overcoming breakaway friction of
the O-ring seal (4) before the preset cracking pressure is
reached. This insures extremely precise cracking pressure
accuracy.

6
1

4

5

Cracking
When system pressure rises above the cracking pressure,
the force at area 6 is increased and overcomes the
preset spring force, permitting the poppet retainer (3)
to continue its upward movement and lift the poppet
(1) away from the orifice (5), permitting flow through the
orifice passage (7).

Open
Under conditions of flow, back pressure in the orifice
nozzle (7) reduces the effective downward force on the
poppet, which allows the poppet retainer unit to open
further, providing increased flow with little or no increase
in pressure. Where the valve is used as a sequence or
priority valve, the downstream pressure buildup permits
the poppet to open fully, allowing flow with minimum
pressure drop.

Available in low, medium, high and extra high


pressure models, R6000 right angle relief
valves provide users with high accuracy and
consistency of cracking and reseat pressures.
Furthermore, narrow pressure ranges
(cracking pressures) for each model can be
factory pre-set according to customer
specifications. PED certification and CE
marking are standard for all models. All R6000
relief valves are offered with multiple end
connections to ensure application versatility.

Medium (1502500 psig)6 spring ranges improve
accuracy
High (1505000 psig)7 spring ranges improve accuracy
Extra High (50006000 psig)one spring
Delta stem seal design prevents friction which increases
accuracy of cracking pressure and reseat pressure.
Balanced poppet design allows cracking pressure to
stay the same regardless of backup pressure.
Orifice sizes: 0.082, 0.094, 0.188
Multiple end connections available.
Optional manual override handle
For European Pressure Equipment Directive
(PED 97/23/EC) applications, due to the R6000 valves
small poppet seat design, it is imperative that the R6000
valve be used in clean gas service ONLY (free from dust
particles, contamination, and etc. (gas group 1 &2)).
