1 Scope

It is the purpose of this document to establish, the requirements for testing and evaluating the pressure-containing performance of API 6A and 6D valves when exposed to fire. The performance requirements of this document are intended to establish standard limits of acceptability regardless of size or pressure rating.

This document establishes acceptable levels for leakage through the test valve and also external leakage after exposure to a fire for a 30 minute time period.

The burn period has been established on the basis that it represents the maximum time required to extinguish most fires. Fires of greater duration are considered to be of a major magnitude with consequences greater than those anticipated in this test.
