  24. what is the purpose of a check valve
    These are valves that only flow in allow one direction, they eliminate backflow, preventing equipment damage and contamination of the process
  25. describe what a relief or safety vavle does
    These valves are used to protect equipment and personnel from over pressurization situations. both are designed to open and dischrage to a collection system when the pressure exceeds a present threshold. the only difference is the type of service there intended for (liquid or gas) and the speed at which they open
