Boiler Safety - Occupational Safety and Health Administration

Safety valves are commonly tested by lifting the safety valve try lever.. With the boiler pressure at a minimum of 75% of the safety valve set pressure, the safety valve try lever is lifted to wide open position. Steam is discharged for 5 sec to 10 sec. The try lever is released, and the disk should snap to the closed position against the valve seat. Malfunctioning safety valves must be replaced as soon as possible.

In steam systems, safety valves are typically used for boiler overpressure protection and other applications such as downstream of pressure reducing controls. Although their primary role is for safety, safety valves are also used in process operations to prevent product damage due to excess pressure.

Jul 03, 2017 · The main function of a safety valve is to relieve pressure. It is located on the boiler steam drum, and will automatically open when the pressure of the inlet side of the valve increases past the preset pressure. All boilers are required by ASME code to have at least one safety valve, dependent upon the maximum flow capacity (MFC) of the boiler.

Your guide to safer boiler operation

Safety valves prevent dangerous over pressurization of the boiler. Safety valves are installed in case there is failure of pressure controls or other devices designed to control the firing rate. All safety valves should be kept free of debris by testing the safety valve regularly. This should be done when the steam pressure is at approximately 75 percent of the safety-valve set pressure. Safety and safety-relief valves

Safety Valve | Function,types, Construction,Working

Safety valve is used to guard the boiler against the excessive high pressure of steam inside the drum. If the pressure of steam in the boiler drum exceeds the working pressure then the safety valve allows blow-off the excess quantity of steam to atmosphere. Thus the pressure of steam in the drum falls.
