Purchasing Requirements for Control Valves
|Publication Date:||1 March 2016|
This Practice describes the minimum general requirements for the control valve body construction, actuator, auxiliaries (e.g., positioner, limit switches, etc.), testing, inspection, and documentation. This Practice provides requirements for the format for providing data for each individual control valve, the method to be used for valve sizing, and other design considerations. For Control Valves sizing and selection see PIP PCCCV001 and PIP PCECV001.
This Practice does not include requirements for motor-operated valves, on-off valves intended for emergency isolation, and valves with hydraulic actuators. For On-Off Valves, see PIP PCCCV003, Remotely Actuated On-Off Valves Selection Criteria and PIP PCECV003, Guidelines for Application of Remotely Actuated On-Off Valves.
