The API standard Valve Inspection and Testing, covers the testing and API states for shell and backseat tests, no visible leakage is permitted.

Line pressures of up to bar or LBS can be realized.

Robust and metal seated gate valves The production of metal seated gate valves dates back to the 18th century, which led to industrialization. The bonnet has a recess in which the wedge is retracted for closing.

In addition, sits in the bonnet a sealing ring which additionally seals. In particularly abrasive applications, a so-called build-up welding is applied to the housing seat.

This reduces possible corrosion or faster wear of the seat. Due to the robust design, metal seated gate valves are used especially in the industrial sector, such as hot water lines.

API 598 Valve Inspection and Testing

Just then metal-sealing gate valves are more advantageous than soft-sealing, since they can only be used up to temperatures of about degrees. Depending on the design, metal-sealed industrial valves can withstand temperatures of up to degrees.

However, one disadvantage of the metal-sealing system is that contaminations in the housing seat can make it difficult to close the gate valve.

As a result, it can happen that the connected pipe can not be closed or only partially closed.

2.0 RELEVANT STANDARD

Which can lead to significant problems. Intended for single-port and balanced single-port valves with extra-tight piston seals and metal-to-metal seats. Leakage rate is limited to 0.

Class V. Intended for the same types of valves as Class IV. Class VI.

Intended for resilient-seating valves. Pressure is the lesser of 50 psig or operating pressure.

API 598(Valve Inspection and Testing)

The leakage limit depends on valve size and range from 0. The valve shall be completely filled with test fluid.

Any entrapped air should be vented from both ends and the body cavity via either a The upper test flange with the valve axis vertical or via the stem with the packing removed. If unacceptable leakage is found, corrective action may be taken to eliminate the leakage and the test repeated.

If the valve is disassembled to eliminate the leakage, all previous testing must be repeated upon re-assembly.

The allowable leakage of test fluid from the seat seal interface shall be according to those listed in Table 3. The test shall show no leakage through the disc, behind the seat rings or past the shaft seals. With the valve in the partially open position, the cavity shall be completely filled with test fluid and any entrapped air should be vented from both ends and the body cavity via either a The upper test flange with the valve axis vertical.

The valve should be closed and the body cavity vent where fitted shall remain open. Globe Valve: The pressure shall be applied in one direction with the pressure applied under the disc upstream side of the closed valve with the other side open to the atmosphere to check for leakage at the atmospheric side of the closure. Check valve: The pressure shall be applied in one direction with the pressure applied behind the disc down stream side of the closed valve with the other side open to the atmosphere to check for leakage at the atmospheric side of the closure.The test shall show no leakage, no wetting of the external surfaces, and no permanent distortion under the full test pressure.

Globe Valve: The pressure shall be applied in one direction with the pressure applied under the disc upstream side of the closed valve with the other side open to the atmosphere to check for leakage at the atmospheric side of the closure.

B The body drain connection with the valve axis horizontal. There shall be no visible leakage during the test duration specified in Table 2.

The valve shall be completely filled with test fluid. Not Logged In Member?: B The body drain connection with the valve axis horizontal. In addition, the seat can be machined with stellite, thus prolonging the service life, since this reduces wear and does not wear out so quickly.

Depending on customer requirements, either a flange connection according to DIN standard and ANSI standard, an internal thread or a welding end can be attached to the connections of the valve.
