PROTECH AP12576G - Temperature and Pressure Relief Valve (T and P)

Temperature and Pressure Relief Valves, also called T and P valves, are emergency safety limit devices that will prevent or relieve overheated water and pressure. Without a relief valve during an unsafe condition, the pressure inside the tank would rise to the point the tank may rupture or explode. This would cause potential damage to both people and property. Rheem water heaters are pressure tested to 300 pounds per square inch (PSI) and have a working pressure of 150 PSI. The T and P valve is designed to open when the pressure inside the tank exceeds 150 PSI, allowing pressure to vent safely. The T and P valve will also open if the water temperature reaches 2100°F. The valve will remain open allowing cold water into the tank until the unsafe condition is over.

For use with Kit Models ML8346, RP8346, SP8346, UV8346.
