Pilot Operated Relief valves [RP valves]

RP valves

Relief valves are passive components used to:

  • Act as safety valves. They protect fixed displacement pumps and directional control valves when pump output flow is intermittently blocked.
  • Limit pressure overshoot associated with pressure compensated pumps.
  • Protect hydraulic actuators (cylinders & motors) from shock pressures associated with starting and stopping heavy loads.


Specifications of Pilot Operated (RP) Valves:

  • Rated flow of up to 760 LPM
  • Maximum pressure of 420 Bar


Special features of RP relief valves:

  • Pilot Operated Relief valves (RP) are easily adjustable.
