Pressure-reducing valves: symbology and characteristics of these components
Pressure reducing valves, one of our major specialties
At Valfonta, we take pride in being specialized leaders in the design and manufacturing of a variety of pressure reducing valves. Our expertise has been built and perfected over more than half a century of experience in the industry. We have achieved this unique proficiency through a constant commitment to research and development, allowing us to stay at the forefront in implementing the most advanced materials and component innovation.
Our dedication to achieving excellence goes beyond constant innovation. It is also reflected in the meticulous craftsmanship of our technical experts and our steadfast commitment to customer service. We believe that each valve we produce is not just a product but an efficient and long-lasting solution for our customers’ pressure control needs.
This comprehensive approach has allowed us to establish ourselves as a benchmark in the valve industry at a national level. However, we don’t stop there. Throughout this time, we have experienced exponential growth, expanding our presence and influence beyond the domestic market.
We remain true to our original mission while evolving and growing to meet the challenges of the future. At Valfonta, we not only manufacture valves; we forge reliable pressure control solutions with the clear objective of driving our industry forward.
In our catalog, we offer different models of pressure reducing valves:
We can also design custom pressure reducing valves.
Thanks to the experience gained and our exceptional team of professionals, in addition to having an extensive catalog of pressure reducing valves, we are capable of designing and manufacturing fully customized valves according to the requirements of each system. And it’s not just pressure reducing valves, we also produce various types of pressure relief valves and control valves.
Just let us know in detail what you need, and we will manufacture it specifically for you. It’s as simple as that!
Pressure reducing valves: common symbols for these components
Here are the most common symbols used to identify this type of valves:
>> The symbol commonly used to represent a pressure reducing valve in hydraulic systems is as follows:
It’s a general symbol.
>> The hydraulic symbol for a one-way pressure reducing valve:
>> Symbol of a differential reducing valve between the pressures of 1 and 2.
>> This is the general symbol for a pressure relief valve.
>> Symbol for a pressure relief valve with discharge regulation.
>> Hydraulic symbol of a sequential valve with regulation.
>> Hydraulic symbol of a balanced reducing valve.
This is the general and basic symbolism of pressure reducing valves and their different variants and models. In the field of process engineering, the use of standardized symbolism is essential for effective communication and clear understanding of pipeline systems and the processes being implemented. Pressure reducing valves, which play a crucial role in pressure regulation and control within a system, are no exception.
Generally, in process flow diagrams, a valve is represented by a small circle. However, a pressure reducing valve has specific symbolism to differentiate it from other valves. It is represented by a circle with an arrow inside pointing downwards, symbolizing the pressure reduction. Sometimes, the circle may be notched at an angle, which also indicates a pressure decrease.
In some cases, you may also see a pressure reducing valve represented by the letters “PRV” (Pressure Reducing Valve), placed inside or near the circle. This alphanumeric code adds more clarity to the specific function of the valve.
It is important to note that symbolism may vary slightly depending on the specific standards being used, such as ISO, ANSI, or DIN. However, the basic concepts are usually similar and are based on the idea of providing a clear and concise visual representation of the valve’s function.

Valfonta has been a beneficiary of the European Regional Development Fund, whose objective is to improve the use and quality of information and communication technologies and access to them. Thanks to this, they have been able to implement a production and plant control system (MES system). This action took place during 2022. For this purpose, they have received the support of the Industry 4.0 program of the Barcelona Chamber of Commerce.
