Purchase the type of relief valve for the application of the vessel that the valve is installed. Example : air tank ( relief valve intended for air service) or hot water heating boiler (relief valve intended for hot water service) etc.

Sizing a pressure relief valve to make sure of flow rates is vital before purchase, also Material spec is very important i.e carbon steel , stainless steel etc.

Buyers must not do search for what they may feel are equivalent to specified valve.

Ensure spare parts availability and after sales services.
