The Selection and Testing of Valves for LPG Applications

Year: 2012
Language: english
Author: SIGTTO
Genre: Guide
Publisher: Witherby Publishing Group Ltd
Format: PDF
Quality: eBook
Pages count: 13
Description: This document is intended to offer guidance to designers and operators on the general requirements for valves for Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) service, where valves are generally designed for an operating temperature range from – 55°C to + 80°C Some valves such as those on compressor exhausts may reach temperatures in the region of +150°C and should be specified accordingly. This guidance is primarily intended for application to LPG ships, but may be applied throughout the LPG industry as appropriate. Nothing in this document seeks to override any national or international standards and codes that may be applicable to these valves.
For cryogenic valves (those operating below -80°C) there is further guidance in the SIGTTO publication “The Selection and testing of valves for LNG Applications”.
Additional info: This document applies only to valves installed on LPG vessels; however it can provide guidance to valves at LPG terminals. This document is designed to be a supplemental guide to work in conjunction with the relevant codes and standards for LPG valves and does not seek to override them.
