94640 Pilot Operated Relief Valve (Diaphragm Pilot)

The Shand & Jurs 94640 Pilot Operated Relief Valve is designed to meet very specific pressure needs. The high accuracy of the valve allows the pressure to be set between .11 psig to 15 psig using sensitive springs for discrete ranges. The valve operates as follows.

As the internal tank pressure reaches the valves set point, the upward force on the sensing and boost diaphragms overcome the downward spring force causing the pilot to fully open. This causes a large pressure reduction on the upper side of the main valve diaphragm which results in a full lift of the main valve seat. When the pressure reduces to the point its resulting upward force is less than the spring force, the pilot seat begins to close. This, in turn, builds up pressure on the upper side of the main valve diaphragm which closes the main valve seat. The pressures are again returned to their normal operating levels.

The valve’s set point and blowdown can both be adjusted externally. The blowdown adjustment allows the valve to be operated in a snap action mode or a modulating mode. The snap action mode provides full opening at set point while the modulating mode provides a proportional opening with respect to over pressure.
