Genebre safety valves certified by TÜV Rheinland

22 February 2021

Genebre Safety Valves (www.genebre.es), the company in valves and accessories for the control of fluids and high-quality taps, have obtained the Certification by the Authorized Control Organization TÜV Rheinland. 

Pressure equipment, such as boilers or pipes, can pose a great danger, and even more so if they contain dangerous fluids since they are designed to withstand a certain level. If this level of pressure is increased, there may be a risk of explosion with serious consequences for the facilities and their users. The use of safety valves reduces excess pressure in the installations, evacuating the flow of Liquid, Steam, or Gas necessary to keep them protected. They must also be resistant to possible corrosion phenomena that the different liquids may cause.

The Certification helps to control these risks, verifying the safety of the valves and their adequate maintenance, as well as compliance with the applicable regulations. It also allows this type of product to be marketed, complying with all the requirements established in the EN 4126-1 / 7 Design standards and the Pressure Equipment Directive 2014/68 / EU.

The Certified references are PSV Safety Valves (Pressure Safety Valve), designed for the application in Gases and Steam fluids: references 2252, 2252N, 2253, 2253N, 2256, and 2257.

For use in Liquid fluids, and as a novelty in its Industrial Catalog 2021, Genebre presents the references 2258, 2258N, 2259, and 2259N. These new products are marketed as PRV (Pressure Relief Valve) Relief Valves and also comply with Directive 2014/68 / EU.
