SRS - Self-Relief Seat

In some applications, such as Dowtherm or Syltherm, when media gets trapped in the valve cavity and its temperature is very low, cavity pressure in the valve body can reach dangerously high levels (thousands of psi) if the valve is suddenly exposed to heat. If there is no allowance for pressure relief the seats can collapse into the pipe passage and cause seizure of the ball. This is very common...
