This article references two types of valves: Control valves, which are defined as manipulating a flowing fluid to keep process variables as close as possible to the desired set point; and 2. There are several different standards organizations across process industries, some of the common ones are: One of the most common standards that comes up on every specification sheet is the pressure class.

The most common are CL,, and These do not correspond to a pressure rating in psi. These classes are simply designations that define valve design or pressure retaining components. One of the most popular interpolated ratings is CL due to the large size difference between a Class and valve. Utilizing a CL valve may help eliminate installed costs associated with piping supports or actuator sizing. Additional, extended, pressure temperature ratings can be applied to welded-end constructions.

Special class valves allow for extended pressure temperature ratings on a standard rating if non-destructive examination NDE has occurred. Different NDE methods include radiographic, volumetric and surface, and ultrasonic examination.

These capability extensions help minimize costs associated with jumping up to the next standard pressure class. The concepts of ajsi tested and fire safe valves are ones that often seem confused.

There are some similarities between tests: These are, however, very different standards intended for different valves. API was written to cover soft-seated quarter-turn valves. It would be inappropriate to see API specified for a metal-seated valve.


There are several different emissions standards and protocols. ISO ansii a type test that will qualify a valve construction. ISO is a production test for valve constructions that have previously passed an ISO test. Production tests for packing are generally not a standard deliverable from valve manufacturers. API and are two common isolation valve standards.

API qualifies a packing arrangement fi could be used in many valve types or styles. One of the key differences between isolation and control valve packing standards are the testing criteria to which they are certified.

The big variance between the standards, as shown in Table 1, is the number of cycles tested for each method. This makes sense as a control valve is tested to much higher cycle rates because it should inherently cycle more often in tracking a set point. As with fugitive emissions, there are many different seat leakage classes for control valves and isolation valves. Class I is an agreed upon leakage rate between the customer and the vendor.

This standard is extremely 70–2 when a floating ball valve is specified. Due to the nature of the floating ball valve, which uses process pressure to obtain shutoff, the low pressure test helps validate sealing in these minimal pressure conditions.

MSS SP is another isolation valve standard, very similar to API which specifies bubble tight for soft seat constructions in certain sizes, but allows anzi for metal seats. ISO is an international standard that uses rates ranging from A to G. Two of the more common ans are rate A and D. Rate A is a true, zero-leak test, while rate D seems to be intended more for metal-seated constructions. To give an idea of how these rates compare to one another, Figure 1 depicts the time needed to fill a regulation NFL football using the max allowable leakage rates for an NPS 4 metal-seated valve.


Official rules of the National Football League require game-use footballs to be inflated to between Psi or 86 to 93 kPa. Seat leak comparison to fill an NFL football.

The standards and specifications listed above are not comprehensive or discussed annsi considerable detail, but the importance of understanding the common principals and purpose of the standards listed on the spec sheets given 702- your valve suppliers is crucial to the installed performance and lifespan of your final control elements.

Specifying an unintended standard to an application may also add unnecessary cost and lead time to replacement fcj repair of a critical loop. This email address is being protected from spambots.
