8100 - Introduction
Mercer Valve 8100 Series Safety Relief Valves are the "State of the Art" in soft seat, high flow rate, pressure relieving devices. The field-proven soft seat is coupled with a new, unique disk type PATENTED DESIGN. Expected seat life is hundreds of "pops". Full length guiding of "low rate" set pressure springs insures accurate, repeatable relief action.
The Valve is well suited for all industrial air, gas, and liquid relief applications, including compressors, separators, transmission and gathering lines, gas production units, heater treaters, scrubbers, and other production processes.
All 8100 Series Valves are built in accordance with the requirements of the ASME Boiler and Pressure Vessel Code. Capacity ratings were established by testing performed at the National Board of Boiler and Pressure Vessel Inspectors, Columbus, Ohio.
