Pressure Relief Valves

Pressure relief valves, also known as PRV valves, are a critical piece of safety equipment. Use pressure relief valves (PRV) and pressure relief vacuum relief valves (PRVR) to protect tanks and vessels from excessive pressure and/or vacuum situations.  


It is very dangerous to pressurize a tank without a pressure relief valve.  Tanks and vessels that are rated for pressure are most often not rated for vacuum.  Protect your investment from accidents, such as adding cold water to a hot tank which can cause an instant implosion.  


NOTE:  Pressure relief valves are not intended to be used as operational devices.  We offer spunding valves for operational pressure management.  Disassemble and clean your PRVR periodically, and always after exposure to product, especially sugary liquids such as beer, wort, or soft drinks.
