Select an unloader appropriate for the pressure and flow of your system (see specification chart). This unloading valve is a flow-through design and should be mounted on the discharge line of the pump in any position (horizontal or vertical) which allows easy access to the adjusting bolt. A pressure gauge should be installed on either side of the body of the unloader to accurately read pressure during adjustment. Minumum 5% bypass is required for proper operation.
