To prevent the pressure from exceeding the rated safety value. When the pressure returns to normal, the valve closes again and prevents the medium from continuing to flow out. 3. 1. 1 Direct-loaded safety valve A direct-loaded safety valve is a safety valve that only relies on direct mechanical loading devices such as heavy hammers, lever-increased hammers or springs to overcome the force generated by the medium pressure under the disc. 3.1.2 Assisted safety valve with power assisted safety valve This safety valve can be opened when the pressure is lower than the normal set pressure with the help of a power assisted device. Even if the device fails, the valve can still meet all the requirements of this standard for safety valves. 3.1.3 Safety valve with supplementary loaded safety valve This kind of safety valve always maintains an additional force to enhance the seal before its inlet pressure reaches the set pressure. This additional force (supplementary load) can be provided by an external energy source, and should be reliably released when the inlet pressure of the safety valve reaches the set pressure. The size of the supplementary load should be set such that when the load is not released, the safety valve can still reach the rated displacement under the premise that its inlet pressure does not exceed the percentage of the set pressure specified by national regulations. 3.1.4 Pilot-operated safety valve A safety valve that relies on the discharge of medium from the pilot valve to drive or control the safety valve. The pilot valve itself should be a direct load safety valve that meets the requirements of this standard. 3.2 Pressure 3.2.1 set pressure The predetermined pressure at which the safety valve starts to open under operating conditions is the gauge pressure measured at the valve inlet. Under this pressure, the force generated by the medium pressure to open the valve and the force to keep the valve seat on the valve seat balance each other under the specified operating conditions. 3.2.2 Overpressure The pressure increase that exceeds the set pressure of the safety valve,
It is usually expressed as a percentage of the set pressure. 3.2.3 Re-seating pressure After the safety valve is discharged, its valve disc contacts the valve seat again, that is, the static pressure at the valve inlet when the opening height becomes zero. 3.2.4 Cold differential test pressure The safety valve is adjusted on the test bench to the inlet static pressure when it starts to open. This pressure includes corrections to operating conditions such as back pressure and temperature. 3.2.5 Discharge pressure relieving pressure Set pressure plus over pressure. 3.2.6 Built-up back pressure The pressure formed at the outlet of the valve due to the medium flowing through the safety valve and the exhaust system. 3.2.7 Additional back pressure superimposed back pressure The static pressure existing at the outlet of the safety valve immediately before it operates is caused by other pressure sources in the exhaust system. 3.2.8 Blowdown pressure difference The difference between the blowdown set pressure and the return pressure. It is usually expressed as a percentage of the set pressure; when the set pressure is less than 0.3 MPa, it is expressed in MPa. 3.3 Opening height lift The actual stroke of the valve disc from the closed position. 3.4 Flow area flow area The minimum cross-sectional area of the flow path from the inlet end of the valve to the sealing surface of the closing member, which is used to calculate the theoretical flow rate without the influence of any resistance. 3.5 Flow diameter flow diameter Corresponding to the diameter of the flow path area. 3.6 Displacement discharge capacity 3.6.1 Theoretical discharge capacity The calculated displacement of an ideal nozzle with the cross-sectional area of the flow channel equal to the flow channel area of the safety valve, expressed in mass flow or volume flow. 3.6.2 Rated displacement certified (discharge) capacity The part of the actual measured displacement that is allowed to be used as a safety valve application benchmark. The rated displacement can be taken as one of the following three: a) The measured displacement is multiplied by the reduction coefficient (take 0.9); b) The theoretical displacement is multiplied by the displacement coefficient, and then multiplied by the reduction coefficient (take 0.9); c) Theoretical The displacement is multiplied by the rated (ie reduced) displacement coefficient. 3.6.3 Equivalent calculated displacement The calculated displacement of the safety valve when the use conditions such as pressure, temperature or medium conditions are different from the applicable conditions of the rated displacement. 3.7 mechanical characteristics 3.7.1 frequency jump chatter safety valve disc moves back and forth quickly and abnormally, and the valve discriminates against the valve seat during movement. 3.7.2 Flutter The flap of the flutter safety valve moves back and forth quickly and abnormally, and the flap does not touch the seat during the movement. 3.8 Independent authority An organization that is responsible for supervising tests and reviewing safety valve displacement calculations and certificates. 3.9 Inspection authority inspection authority The competent authority responsible for reviewing compliance with this standard. It may or may not be the same agency as the independent supervisory agency.
