Parker RL4 Relief Valves are designed such that when the upstream pressure exceeds the closing force exerted by the spring, the lower stem opens, permitting flow through the valve. Flow hrough the valve increases proportionately to the increase in upstream pressure.
Dimensions in inches (millimeters) are for reference only, subject to change.
The correct part number is easily derived from the following example and ordering chart. The eight product characteristics required are coded as shown in the chart.
