Anderson Greenwood Large Capacity Pilot (LCP)

Pilot Operated Safety Valve

ANDERSON GREENWOOD
Product Overview
Anderson Greenwoods LCP Series pilot operated safety valve is designed to provide the reliable overpressure protection you have come to expect in a cost effective package. The compact assembly lends itself to supplying larger capacities that optimize the entire pressure relief valve installation. The LCP Series valve has the capability to be used on almost all gases or vapors. The valve is available with inlet sizes of 1 to 3 [25 to 75 mm], set pressures from 25 to 2220 psig [1.72 to 153 barg], and continuous temperatures from -20 to 400F [-29 to 204C]. The scope of the LCP Series design is fixed upon these common sizes and set pressures, and comes equipped with typically required accessories as a standard. In fact, the only available option for the LCP Series valve is a trim for sour sulfide laden gases. This latest edition to our POPRV line provides dependable safety in a low cost configuration.

Provides reliable overpressure protection in a cost effective package.

Features and Benefits


Rigid Pilot Mounting. No tubing anywhere on the valve provides ultimate protection against vibration and careless handling. Balanced Design. Proper valve operation and lift are unaffected by back pressure. Costly and fragile metal bellows are not required. Integral Back Flow Prevention. High superimposed back pressure or inlet vacuum will not open valve. Added protection and safety at no added cost.

Non-Flowing Pilot. Minimizes entrance of dirt or hydrates in the pilot to provide repeatable performance during multiple relieving cycles. ASME Section VIII Code Stamp. Certified third party capacities for gas service. Viton Soft Seats and Seals. Reduces emissions and product loss while minimizing maintenance costs. No metal seat lapping is required. Full Bore Orifices. Reduces upfront valve and associated piping costs.

Integral Field Test Connection. Standard feature that provides a safe and accurate way to do in-place performance tests. NACE MR-01-75 Trim (2002 Edition). Optional trim materials available to meet sour gas requirement.

Anderson Greenwood Large Capacity Pilot (LCP)


Pilot Operated Safety Valve

Operation
In the normal, closed position, full system pressure is sensed through the bottom of the main valve piston. When the system pressure is higher than the back pressure, the integral backflow preventer (BFP) is sealed towards the discharge of the valve. This allows the system pressure to pass through the center of the main valve piston. The system pressure then enters into the dome (volume above the main valve piston). The main valve remains closed because the piston seal area is greater than the main seat area. If the back pressure exceeds the system pressure, or if the valve senses a vacuum, the BFP is then sealed towards the valve inlet, as shown in Figure 1. This allows the higher back pressure to enter into the dome and keep the main seat closed. When the pilot senses set pressure, the relief seat snaps open and the blowdown seat snaps closed simultaneously. This vents the dome pressure safely to atmosphere through the vent in the main valve cap. This allows the main valve to open fully at set pressure. The blowdown seat remains tightly closed during the relief cycle so no system fluid continuously flows through the pilot. When the main valve reduces the system pressure to a level below set pressure, the relief seat snaps closed and the blowdown seat snaps open simultaneously. This fully repressures the dome to system pressure and closes the main valve. The reseat pressure is not adjustable but will provide an average of 15% or less blowdown as shown below.
