Remotely Actuated On-Off Valves Selection Criteria
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
This Practice provides requirements for the specification and installation of remotely actuated on-off valves. This Practice describes the requirements for process application, valve and actuator selection, material selection, ancillary equipment, and testing of remotely activated on-off valves (e.g., 2-way, 3-way, 4-way, etc.).
This Practice covers non-throttling applications. Throttling applications are considered to be control valves and are covered in PIP PCCCV001and PIP PCECV001. However, remotely activated on-off valves have many similarities with control valves (e.g., body configuration, materials of construction, internals, etc.). Therefore, this Practice shall be used in conjunction with PIP PCCCV001 and PIP PCECV001.
This Practice does not cover process analytical sample valves.
