English term or phrase: rapid yield valve
I am looking for a translation of this kind of valve that is used in shield supports for underground mining to protect the support's legs.

Asker: Thanks! I also just got the correct term from a mining specialist: "Gebirgsschlagventil" (rapid here refers to the release upon sudden impact of falling rock exceeding a certain speed) Heinz von Bockelmann
