Features and Benefits

GE's Consolidated pilot valve has a unique design that combines top features and capabilities within an economical, modular assembly. This is based on the successful design of an optimized safety “device” that offers versatility of application, yet provides cost-effective standardization. Additional features and benefits of the 2900 series valve include:

  • A Pilot Gag prevents the pilot-operated relief valve from opening while equipment is undergoing operational hydrostatic testing
  • Through its improved seat tightness to 98 percent of set pressure, and adjustable blowdown to 2 percent of set pressure, the 2900 series valve allows higher system pressures that can increase the yield of the process
  • Pop action and modulating pilots allow for application versatility
  • Pilot seat design allows for self-cleaning operation and is tolerant to icing and dirty conditions
  • Remote actuation and sensing can eliminate problems caused when then inlet pressure drop exceeds 3 percent
  • The metal seat option incorporates proven technology from the 1900 series safety relief valve seat design
  • Retrofit kits easily and economically convert an existing Consolidated 1900 SRV to the 2900 POSRV design
  • Replacing and/or upgrading existing API 526 spring-loaded safety relief valves with the 2900 series valve eliminates costly piping changes
  • Process temperatures that range from -400°F (-240°C) to 1200°F (649°C) can be met using the heat exchanger option
  • The Dirty Service option ensures operation in dirty, precipitating and viscous fluids
