PRODUCTS Pressure Reducing Valves

miyawaki pressure reducing valves

MIYAWAKI's Steam Pressure reducing Valves (PRV) are designed for regulating the downstream pressure and maintaining it within certain acceptable limits. Ideally, a PRV should provide constant downstream pressure while delivering the required flow, i.e. the PRV automatically adjusts the steam flow to meet the downstream system demand.

 

Types:

Direct acting pressure reducing valves RE1, RE20, REH20, REC20, REC1 and RE2

Pilot operated pressure reducing valves RE3 and RE10N

Pressure reducing valves with a downstream pressure sensing line RE20L, REH20L and REC20L

Operating principle - General

The direct acting PRV has 3 essential elements:

A - Main Valve Unit
B - Pressure Measuring Element (Bellows)
C - Adjust Spring

re1

The pilot operated PRV has 4 essential elements:

A - Main Valve Unit
B - Pilot Valve (same structure as the direct-acting PRV)
C - Adjusting Unit (piston and cylinder liner)
D - Signal Line

re2

Changes in downstream pressure are sensed by the bellows, which expands or contracts depending on the pressure change.

The movement of the bellows will be directly transferred to the spring, which will open or close the main valve, thus keeping the downstream pressure at a certain level.

Changes in downstream pressure are sensed by the pilot valve mechanism (bellows connected with a pilot valve unit) through a signal line D, which connects the pilot valve regulator with the secondary pressure side.

Movement of the bellows will open or close the pilot valve, regulating the amount of steam influencing the movement of the piston, which will close or open the main valve, thus keeping downstream pressure on a stable level.

 

Operating principle - Pilot Operated PRV RE3 & RE10N

inlet-pressure Inlet Steam Pressure secondary-pressure Secondary Steam Pressure adjusting-pressure Adjusting Steam Pressure
re
Before adjusting the secondary pressure the green handle must be turned clockwise to relea se the adjust spring No.15 until the handle moves freely. In this position the main valve (4) is closed by the force of the spring No. 6 and the pilot valve (11) is closed by the force of the spring No. 13. When steam enters the valve, part of the steam enters the pilot chamber (X) through the orifice (Y).
re
To adjust the secondary pressure the handle must be turned counterclockwise. As a result, the adjust spring (15) will be pressed into the bellows (14). The bellows will expand and the pilot valve shaft (47) will open the pilot valve (11). The steam, which has entered the pilot chamber (X) will flow through the pilot valve unit into the chamber above the piston (7). Due to the steam pressure the piston (7) will move downwards and open the main valve (4). Steam will flow towards the secondary side.
re
Part of the steam, which flows to the secondary side will enter the pressure sensing chamber (Z) through the pressure signal line (D). Due to the pressure influence, the bellows (14) will contract. Depending on the secondary pressure value the force exerted by the bellows and the force exerted by the adjust spring (15) will be balanced and the opening degree of the pilot valve (11) will be adjusted, thus regulating the amount of steam flowing through the pilot valve to the piston. Consequently, the opening degree of the main valve (4) will be also adjusted to regulate the steam flow in the direction of the secondary side maintaining a stable steam flow and steam pressure on the secondary side.
