What is the main characteristic of safety valves in industrial steam boilers?

According to their elevation, we can divide the safety valves in industrial steam boilers into two groups:

  • Those with instantaneous opening in which when the set pressure is exceeded, the valve opens suddenly and completely.

Those with pressure relief where, once the set pressure has been overcome, the valve opens proportionally to the pressure increase it is suffering from.
