General

This Standard applies to new valve construction and covers quarter turn manually operated metallic valves in sizes NPS 414 and tubing sizes 114 O.D. These valves are intended for indoor installation as gas shutoff valves when installed in aboveground fuel gas piping downstream of the gas meter outlet and upstream of the inlet connection to a gas appliance. The valves covered by this Standard are intended for service at temperatures between 32°F (0°C) and 125°F (52°C) at pressure ratings not to exceed 5 psi (0.34 bar). When so designated by the manufacturer, these valves may be installed for service outdoors and/or at temperatures below 32°F (0°C) and/ or above 125°F (52°C).

Applicability

This Standard sets requirements, including qualification requirements, for metallic gas valves for use in gas piping systems. Details of design, materials, and testing in addition to those stated in this Standard that are necessary to meet the qualification and production testing requirements of this Standard remain the responsibility of the manufacturer. A valve used under a code jurisdiction or governmental regulation is subject to any limitation of such code regulations.
