Backpressure protection

Safety relief / pressure relief valves and low pressure tank protection

Backpressure can seriously hinder the performance of valves involved in filling and emptying storage tanks and vessels. MARVAC & BIRKETT pilot operated relief valves are designed to overcome the problems of backpressure generated at the discharge of the valve.

Eliminating backpressure

Backpressure refers to pressure opposed to the desired flow of a fluid in a confined place such as a pipe. It is often caused by obstructions or tight bends in the confinement vessel along which it is moving, such as piping or air vents. MARVAC & BIRKETT pilot operated relief valves are designed to overcome the problems of backpressure generated at the discharge of the valve due to pipework, scrubbers etc.

BIRKETT safety relief / pressure relief valves

BIRKETT safety relief / pressure relief valves prevent the build up of backpressure, ensuring safe handling and storage of toxic or hazardous duty.
