Breather Valve (Pressure & Vacuum – Pipe Way Type)
A Breather Valve (Pressure & Vacuum - Pipe Way Type) is a type of safety valve that is designed for use in pipelines or other piping systems. The valve allows air to enter or escape the pipeline as necessary to maintain a safe pressure level and prevent damage or collapse of the pipeline.
This type of breather valve typically has a spring-loaded diaphragm that opens and closes based on the pressure inside the pipeline. If the pressure inside the pipeline exceeds the set pressure limit, the diaphragm opens, releasing excess pressure and preventing overpressure conditions. Similarly, if the pressure inside the pipeline falls below a certain vacuum level, the diaphragm opens, allowing air to enter and prevent the pipeline from collapsing.
Pipe way type breather valves are often used in pipelines that transport hazardous or flammable materials, where a high level of safety and protection against overpressure or vacuum conditions is necessary. They are also commonly used in pipelines that transport gases, liquids, or other fluid materials.
It is important to choose the right type of breather valve for a specific application, as different valves are designed for different pressure and vacuum ranges and may have different materials of construction to meet specific safety requirements. Additionally, the installation location and orientation of the valve must be carefully considered to ensure optimal performance.
