A priority valve is used on the outlet of a high pressure filter tower. The purpose of this valve is to maintain a certain pressure level inside the tower at all times regardless of what the downstream fill pressure might be. Also known as a Ã¢â‚¬Å“Pressure Maintaining ValveÃ¢â‚¬ the VL-530141-TG is factory set at about 2000 psi but can be adjusted if necessary.
By maintaining a constant pressure of at least 2000 psi, the efficiency of the filter media inside the tower is increased as much as 400%. Having a properly set and functioning priority valve is critical to effectiveness of any high pressure purification system.
