"This ensures that backpressure does not increase the opening

pressure of the balanced PRV. With the addition of a bellows, therefore, the opening pressure of the PRV
will remain constant or decrease with increases in backpressure. This change in opening pressure
corresponds to the variation within the bellows manufacturing tolerance. The magnitude of this effect is
normally acceptable. Where opening pressures are reduced due to backpressures, the closing pressures
will also be reduced resulting in longer blowdown. Consult the manufacturer when there are concerns about

backpressure effects on opening pressure."

 

The above snip is from API-520 Part 1

My doubt is, For a conventional PSV we are going to change the PSV Spring force load as per the back pressure at the outlet of PSV.
In case of balanced bellow type PSV, the snip states that when back pressure increases, the PSV opening pressure(=set pressure0 decreases. How the PSV Set pressure changes?

Can anyone explain your understanding for the red font text?

Hi,

 

The above statement is in which edition of API 520 Part 1? Can you upload the mentioned page?

Hi,

For you and others , consider to download the engineering  guide supplied . You should get your answer ( chapters 2&6) 

Good luck

Hi,

 

Please note to the following statement from API 520 just before the statement you brought:

 

"However considerations concerning the bellows manufacturing tolerances and the possible variations of opening pressure with back pressure, lead to the use of bellows with minimum effective bellows area AB  greater than or equal to AN."

 

The case in which there might be a decrease in opening pressure due to an increase in back pressure is relevant to the case with effective bellows area AB greater than the seating area of the disc AN  which, as mentioned in the statement, is normally acceptable.
