    Abstract

    This specification covers spring-loaded, angle style, pressure relief valves for steam, gas, and liquid system applications. Pressure relief valves shall be of the following types and material grades: Type I, Grades A and B; Type II, Grades C and D; and Type III, Grades E and F. Hydrostatic shell test and set pressure, blowdown, and seat tightness test shall be performed to meet the specified requirements.
