Caleffi 309400 CST Temperature Pressure Relief Valve 1/2" 10 Bar 90C

The Caleffi 309400 CST Temperature & Pressure relief valve controls and limits the temperature and pressure of the hot water contained in a domestic storage heater and prevents it from being able to reach temperatures of over 100C, with the formation of steam.

On reaching the settings, the valve discharges a sufficient amount of water into the atmosphere so that the temperature and pressure return within the systems operating limits.

Operating Principle
The valve opens the outlet on reaching the settings for:

Temperature: the thermostat compound inside the temperature sensor 1) submerged in the hot water storage heater, expands as the temperature increases. This expansion causes a thrust pin to move and act on the obturator 2) opening the valve. The valve is set to open at temperatures of over 90C.

Pressure: the obturator, opposed by a set spring, raises on reaching the pressure setting and opens the outlet completely. The pressure setting is chosen according to the maximum permissible pressure in the system. As the temperature and pressure decrease, the opposite action occurs with the valve
subsequently reclosing within the set tolerances.
