High-performance valve manufacturer Goetze KG Armaturen (Goetze) has released its new 1500 bar DN6 safety valve.

A development of the existing series 492, the valve features a compact design claimed by Goetze to be half as heavy and half the size of comparable valves. 

The new DN6 also utilises rotatable outlet housing, allowing the outlet direction to be adjusted following installation, simplifying the valve installation in an existing line environment.

The valves were set on a new high-pressure test bench produced specifically for Goetze, requiring specific planning and considered by the company to represent a ‘major milestone’ in the field of high-pressure safety valves for technical gases. 

Uses for the valve include pressure tanks and pressure systems, high-pressure compressors, compressed natural gas (CNG) and hydrogen applications.
