Are you sure there's no adjustable, threaded disk inside, holding a spring behind a valveface? What you've tightened is just the cap and fitting that the hose slides on to. The Valve is inside. It sure looks like a normal OPV to me. It may require some descaling or cleaning, but it will be adjustable once the moving parts in there are moving freely.

OK, have removed it from the machine - not sure what I'm supposed to see in there but couldn't see anything a screwdriver could adjust.

It took a while to get a shot where the inside was in focus but see attached - am I missing something basic or is there nothing to adjust in there?

Actually, have just noticed 11 bar stamped permanently on the outside - does this mean it's not adjustable?

Looks like it'll be an allen key to adjust it....

So had to take it apart to get an allen key big enough for adjustment but managed to get the pressure down to 9 bar - fairly tedious to keep taking the OPV apart to adjust it though!



Thanks for your help, very much appreciated, will monitor it incase there's any drift.
