Pressure loading and relief valves are spring-loaded diaphragm valves with a small proportional range for metering systems. They are available in PVC, PVDF or stainless steel.

According to the user's requirements, these valves are used to increase metering accuracy or to protect the system against excessive pressure.

Backpressure valve

Backpressure valves are required if the metering pump has to deliver against strongly fluctuating system pressures, or into open systems. In many applications the required metering accuracy can only be ensured with the help of a backpressure valve. Furthermore excessive metering is avoided.

In those cases where the supply pressure is higher than the metering pressure, metering is not possible without a backpressure valve.

Relief valve

Relief valves have a safety function, protecting the metering pump as well as the associated fittings and pipes. They prevent an excessive pressure increase in the system upstream of the metering pump, which may occur for example if shutoff valves are closed although the pump is still running. Therefore relief valves should always be provided.

Relief valves can also be used where constant pressure is to be maintained in a supply line fed by a centrifugal pump. All the medium that is not taken up is returned to the tank via the relief valve.
