What are API Safety Valves?
Safety Valves that meet API 526 have standardised:
• Orifice designation & area
• Valve size & pressure rating (Inlet & Outlet)
• Materials
• Pressure – temperature limits
• Centre-to-face dimensions (Inlet & Outlet)

What this means is that in the majority of cases one manufacturer's API safety valve is directly interchangeable with another manufacturer's valve.
