Three solenoid bypass valves (SBE) are provided between the upper and the lower piston chamber of the hydraulic actuator. Deenergizing one of these solenoid valves opens a flow path between the piston chambers and allows the steam pressure to open the safety valve. Due to the operating principle, the valve can be used with back pressures up to 0.5 x inlet pressure without influencing capacity or trip pressure.



  • Forged and bolted design with inlet separate from outlet.
  • Material change between inlet and outlet is easily implemented.
  • Backseat seals gland during the relief operation.
  • Double acting hydraulic actuator to keep valve completely tight during the normal operation.
  • Hydraulic power operated, to ensure high seat sealing force for constant tight shut-off.
  • No spring required, steam pressure opens the valve.
  • Three solenoid bypass valves are provided per actuator for redundancy.
  • Complete system is type tested and has a type approval number from TÜV.
