Since the 1940s, Farris Engineering has designed and produced a wide range of spring-loaded and pilot-operated pressure relief valves. Used as safety devices, PRVs prevent over-pressurization of vessels, pipelines, and equipment, protecting employees, plants and the environment.
With Farris Valves, a trustworthy valve is only part of our promise. Farris provides customers with total pressure relief management solutions that support a facility’s entire lifecycle, transforming the way you ensure plant safety.
Pressure Relief Valves
A pressure relief valve, an umbrella term which includes safety valves and expansion relief valves, is designed to do exactly that: relieve pressure on a system. Pressure reducing valves use spring-loaded mechanisms to control and relieve any excess pressure, and prevent any more fluid passing through until normal pressure conditions have been restored. Depending on the model, control can be provided to both dynamic and static flow conditions.
While some basic components and activations in relieving pressure may differ between the specific types of relief valves, each aims to be 100% effective in keeping your equipment running safely. Our current range includes all forms of valve, from flanged to spring loaded, threaded to wireless, pilot operated, and much more.
Directional Control Valves
Mobile Hydraulic Directional Control Valves are used on car carriers and in the Agricultural, Industrial and Mobile industries to provide smooth operation, low pressure drop and rapid response for precise fluid control in a lightweight constructed valve. These valves are rated at 2000 psi and flows to 10 GPM.
