SB Series Back Pressure Relief Valves
Chemline’s SB Series back pressure relief valves are designed for long maintenance-free life. They are designed for superior performance in dosing systems. Different models are available. Each has advantages for different applications.
How they Work
Chemline SB Series Back Pressure/Relief Valves have two functions: as a back pressure valve, installed in-line downstream of a pump, the back pressure below the metering pump is maintained. When installed in the branch of a tee they are pressure relief valves. The valves stays closed until inlet pressure reaches the set pressure which is adjusted by turning the spring tensioning bolt. Inlet pressure acts against a PTFE bonded diaphragm, opening the seat to allow flow until the inlet pressure again equals the set pressure.
