RV, RL and RM Series
Introduction
Valves open when system pressure reaches the set pressure. Then the medium flow out to release system pressure. Valves close
when the system pressure is down to the Resealing Pressure.
The opening height and the system pressure are direct proportional. However, there's no limit for relieving capacity. So valves in
these series should be selected carefully according to system requirements.

Cracking Pressure and Resealing Pressure
Cracking pressure: The pressure at which the first indication of flow occurs. The repeatability of
the cracking pressure of each valve after initial relief is within ±5% at room
temperature.
Resealing pressure: The pressure at which there is no indication of flow. Resealing pressure is
always lower than the set pressure.
Back pressure: The pressure of the outlet of the valve. It increases the set pressure.
