Guidelines for Application of Remotely Actuated On-Off Valves
|Publication Date:||1 December 2017|
This Practice describes guidelines and background information for the application of remotely activated on-off valves. This Practice includes process application, valve and actuator selection, material selection, ancillary equipment requirements, 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 PCECV001 and PIP PCCCV001. However, remotely activated on-off valves have many similarities with control valves (e.g., body configuration, materials of construction, internals, etc.). Therefore, this Practice should be used in conjunction with PIP PCECV001.
This Practice does not cover process analytical sample valves.
