The ZB-8 safety valves are designed for protection against too high water pressure on electrical water heaters.
The valve body and all other metallic parts are made of brass. The sealing gaskets are of rubber adequate to its working conditions. All springs are of stainless steel. These valves can release three primary functions:
- The safety valve „A” opens the passage „1” for the outflow of water when the pressure in the tank increase over its permissible limit.
- The check valve „B” for filling the heater with water. It also prevents the outflow of water from the tank back into the supply line in case of pressure failure.
- The return valve „C” opens the outflow of water from the tank into the supply line in case of an excessive pressure rise in the tank exceeding supply line pressure. It makes possible to decrease the pressure in the tank without uptake of hot water from it.
The proper operating of the safety valve should be verified periodically (at least once a month) by turning the lever “2” up to its up position - water must flow through the outlet “1” and then turning the lever to its down position (like on the drawing) -stop of flow.
