KAMAT offers new safety valves

Witten, Germany - KAMAT is offering a new family of safety valves for its KAMAT pumps up to 3,500 bar and up to 4,700 l/min.

The technical development of the company’s plunger pumps is a continuous process. The development department at KAMAT recently completed a project focused upon the complete revision of the safety valves used on the pumps and to adjust them even better to pressure and volume flow.

“We are proud to present the new safety valves to our customers, which have significant advantages over the ones previously used. The advantages of the new ones can essentially be summarized in these three points: They are modern, precise, precisely repeatable and safe”, said managing director Jan Sprakel, who holds a diploma in engineering.

KAMAT uses the most modern spring technology for the safety valves, which guarantees a precise setting and release of the response pressure. There is also a significant improvement in terms of security. An even higher level of safety than before is guaranteed by the fact that the setting and adjustment of the safety valves is now only possible with special tools.

“Those who receive this special tool are exclusively certified KAMAT partners. In addition to the necessary special tools, only they receive instructions for setting the new valves so that the setting and repair of the safety valves meets the high standards of KAMAT”, says Sprakel, while explaining the new technical principle. With the new safety valves offer an even more precise adjustment to the operating pressure and particularly high volume flows of the pumps are possible.

The new safety valves will be manufactured and installed with immediate effect. All KAMAT safety valves are full-lift valves and available as a single or pilot-controlled version for more flow.

All valves are factory-set for the pressure indicated by the customer and lead-sealed prior to delivery. On the housing for single valve versions a rotating bypass connection is installed to drain the leakage medium. The pilot controlled valves are supplied with fixed by-pass connections. To install the pilot-controlled safety valves mounting blocks are required. All safety valves are spring loaded.
