Selection of Control Valves
|Publication Date:||1 March 2003|
This Practice specifies requirements for selection and sizing of pneumatically actuated control valves, including requirements for body, bonnet, trim, actuator, accessories, and noise considerations. This Practice, along with a completed PIP PCSCV001, PIP PCECV001, and the individual control valve data sheets (i.e., ISA20 or equivalent), defines the minimum requirements for selection, materials, construction, and installation of control valves. This Practice does not cover requirements for motor-operated valves, on-off valves intended for emergency isolation, or valves with hydraulic actuators.
Comment: The intention is that the owner will fill out the PIP PCSCV001 control valve specification sheet to define company and location generic requirements for control valves.
This document is a complete revision of PIP PCCCV001, and therefore, revision markings are not provided.
This Practice provides designers and vendors the requirements for the selection and sizing of control valves.
