Advice for the selection and installation of safety valves

Noise pollution can cause its fair share of problems. What you may not know is that you can potentially avoid these issues if you use the right utensils. Our company excels in providing silencers to clients that need them. They come in a variety of models such as vent, inline or safety valve silencer.

When working with safety valves, there are several important considerations you need to keep in mind. We want to take a look at some of the most important ones below.

Seal tightness

This is one of the most important things to think about. It is crucial to plan for it when choosing and installing your own valves.

For one thing, it can result in a major loss of system fluid. Secondly, it can lead to the sealing faces degrading. This can cause a premature lifting of the valve.

The seal tightness is influenced by three primary elements. Firstly, there is the safety valve’s characteristics. Next, we have the installation. The final one is the valve’s operation.

Noise emission

This is something else you need to be aware of. Discharge from your safety valves is not something that should happen regularly. If it does however, the noise can be substantial. Therefore, it is a necessity to figure out the sound level of the valves. You must do this to make certain that you don’t exceed the relevant health and safety regulation levels.


There are multiple ways in which you can lower the noise level here. One of the simplest would have to be employing huge diameter discharge pipes. You could also lag the discharge pipe but you can’t lag the valve. The best option for when there is a lot of noise however would have to be a silencer.
