Safety Valve Capacities in Low Pressure Steam Systems

1 N/m2 = 1 Pa = 1.4504 x 10-4 lb/in2 (psi) = 10-5 bar. For higher pressure steam is compressed and require less volume - required size of the valve reduced. For lower pressure steam is expanded and require more volume - required size of the valve increased.

Safety Valve Capacities in Low Pressure Steam Systems

The main purpose of a safety valve is to prevent the pressure in a system to exceed the certification pressure. Above certification pressure no one can guaranty the systems safety - and especially for a steam system with very hot gas with huge amount of latent heat the consequences can be dramatically.
