PRV MAX Power Relief Valve systems are announced to reduce man-hours and rig downtime associated with mud pump relief valves and systems operation and maintenance.
They are accurate and automated relief valves with an integrated hydraulic actuator, separate hydraulic power unit that can be mounted directly to the valve or within 20 ft of the valve, and remotely mounted ‘touchscreen’ control panel.
The new design is cited as “ideally suited for offshore rigs, floaters, vessels, and jackups interested in avoiding costly downtime events.”
PRV MAX offers a solution to the problem of protecting positive displacement mud pumps from excessive pressures. It increases relief pressure accuracy, increases repeatability, and allows reset to occur in a time-efficient/cost effective manner, declares the manufacturer.
The patent-pending system is constructed using non-interacting mechanical components. Thus, a single point failure will not spread to other valves.
