What is the maximum oil pressure you should have in a diesel engine?
High oil pressure is not usually a problem. The relief will open around 100psi on most engines. ...
Difference between Thermal relief valve and safety valve?
A thermal relief valve is a liquid-only relief due to expansion of a liquid with increased temperature. A safety valve relieves pressure due to a gas. It should be noted that "safety valve" is a general term which could refer to Pressure Relief Valves (PRVs) or Pressure Safety Valves (PSVs), terms which are used synonymously in some industries (such as the petroleum industry) to refer to all relief devices in general. ...
What will cause a marine air compressor high pressure relief valve to lift?
Excessive pressure in the compressor, after the first stage (or how ever many stages there are). Excessive pressure could be caused by shut/ blocked discharge valve. There will also be a relief valve fitted to the intercooler, should one of the tubes burst. This would let air into the water side and suddenly increase the pressure in the intercooler, so a relief valve is fitted. ...
Asked in Slow Cookers
Why has your slow cooker got a rubber stopper in the hole on the lid?
The main pressure relief valve in the center allows steam to escape once the pressure reaches a maximum volume. Should that relief valve be blocked with food particles the rubber safety valve has a slightly higher pressure tolerance and will pop off releasing pressure as a failsafe. ...
Asked in Plumbing
Is it normal for water to leak out of the pressure relief valve on a hot water tank?
YES, as a hot water tank should NOT have a relief valve it should have a combination of Temperature and Pressure relief valve. Normally a T&P is SET @150 PSI and Or 210 Deg F. If the valve leaks this is a sign of an impending disaster such as a pressure vessel exploding. A professional will check to make sure (NBBI, ASME, LMP,) 1- The pressure is not exceeding the high limits of the system 2- Make sure the aqua stat is actually functioning 3-...

Asked in Plumbing
What air pressure is there in a pressure tank In a hot water heating system what should the pressure in the tank be?
A hot water heating systems water pressure should be 12-25 psi , the air in the expansion tank should be set around 10 psi but can only be accurately tested with no water pressure against it. Usually u can tell if the tank is bad when the relief valve on the boiler starts releasing water ...
Asked in Fuel and Fuel Intake, Mercury Villager
Other than spilling a little gas is there anything you should know about relieving the fuel pressure before you install a non adjustable fuel pressure regulator on your 2002 mercury villager?
With engine running, pull the fuel pump fuse or relay. The engine will eventually stall and leave little fuel pressure in the system. ...

What can cause gas pressure between the shoulder blades--on a constant everyday basis?
Pressure between the shoulder blades can be caused by inflammation. Taking a Motrin and applying an ice pack should help give some relief. ...

Should the hydrostatic valve be left open when it is raining?
A "relief valve" can only be accessed when the pool is empty, and no swimming pool should ever be left empty. The only exception is when absolutely necessary due to repair or resurfacing, and that should be completed within the shortest possible time. Any pool that is empty, and that has a relief valve, should have the valve removed for the entire time, regardless of the weather forecast. A "hydrostatic" relief valve opens and closes when needed as it attempts to equalize the...
What food should women with preeclampsia eat?
Other than slight benefits from increased calcium, no nutritional variations offer relief. Relief only comes after pregnancy is completed. Since symptoms include high blood dietary restrictions to assistance in lowering blood pressure would be benificial. ...
Why does a house boiler pressure relief valve drip water constantly?
if it's dripping water constantly even when cold most likely your pressure reducing valve on the in coming water is letting in more water than it should causing the pressure to rise, if it just happens when the boiler is calling for heat it's probably your expansion tank, it could be water lodged and needs to be drained and re pressurized or replaced. make sure the pressurizer relief valve is not dripping before your boiler reaches 30 psi, that's what they are...
How is an unloading valve different from a pressure relief valve?
An unloading valve (or switch) is designed to cycle the machine (typically a compressor) when it reaches control pressure, by cutting off the air supply to the machine, so that there is no air being compressed. A relief valve is placed on the outlet from the machine, or the inlet to the machine being supplied the compressed air (or hydraulics, for hydraulic systems) such that, if the machine over-pressures the system, the relief valve opens and dumps the excess pressure back to the...
Should you insulate your hot water tank?
If it is an old hot water tank with little or no insulation, adding some can save you some money. It it important not to interfere with the pressure relief valve or any vents. ...
