Ingersoll Rand 80psi Low Pressure Head Safety Valve 72062185
This safety valve sits on the low pressure head on several models of the Ingersoll Rand T30 two stage pump. The safety valve has a maximum pressure rating of 80psi and threads into the pump with ¼” threads.
It is extremely rare that this safety valve goes bad. If the valve is blowing off, it is typically indicative of faulty valves on the inside of the pump. Bad valves will cause the safety valve to blow, as the inlet valve on the high pressure side does not close on the piston upstroke, therefore releasing high pressure air back through the intercooler into the low pressure head.
When the safety valve pops, you will need to replace the reed valves on the inside of your pump. Since this part was used on a number of different IR pumps, the valve/gasket kits for these models will vary. Please contact our parts department with your piston pump model number and we will be happy to find the correct valve and gasket kit for your compressor.
