1 Scope

1.1 

This Standard applies to manual lever operated, gas shut-off valves sizes NPS 1/4 to 8 of metallic construction with weld and flanged and threaded ends other than pressure lubricated designs for use with natural gas, manufactured gas and liquefied petroleum gases (distributed as vapour with or without the admixture of air), or mixtures thereof that are suitable for use between service temperatures of –60 °C to 180 °C (–76°F to 356°F) over a pressure range of 0 to 860 kPa (125 psig) and shall withstand field pressure testing to a maximum permissible pressure of 1290 kPa (187 psig).

Notes:

a) Valves covered by this Standard may be used on “digester gas” (methane produced during sewage treatment) but because of entrained contaminants their use shall be subject to agreement between the manufacturer and the purchaser.

b) Valves covered by this Standard may not be used on “sour gas” (gas with entrained hydrogen sulphide) without modification(s). Manufacturers should be consulted for their recommendation.

1.2 

All valves covered by this Standard will be limited as to the service temperature and/or special provisions in accordance with the following designations and descriptions in Clauses 5 through 9.

Clause 5 –30 °C to 65 °C (–22°F to 149°F[JH1] )

1.3 

All references to psi (kPa) throughout this standard are considered as gauge pressure unless otherwise specified.

1.4 

This Standard contains SI (Metric) equivalents to the yard/pound quantities, the purpose being to allow the Standard to be used in SI (Metric) units. If a value for a measurement as given in this Standard is followed by an equivalent value in other units, the first stated is to be regarded as the requirement. The given equivalent may be approximate. If a value for a measurement and an equivalent value in other units are both specified as a quoted marking requirement, the first stated unit, or both units are to be provided.

 

1.5

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user shall satisfy in order to comply with the standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

This European Standard specifies the general requirements and applies to heat meters. Heat meters are instruments intended for measuring the energy which in a heat-exchange circuit is absorbed (cooling) or given up (heating) by a liquid called the heat-conveying liquid. The meter indicates heat in legal units.

Part 3 specifies the data exchange between a meter and a readout device (POINT / POINT communication). For these applications using the optical readout head, the EN 62056-21 protocol is recommended.

For direct or remote local readout of a single or a few meters via a battery driven readout device, the physical layer of EN 13757-6 (local bus) is recommended.

For bigger networks with up to 250 meters, a master unit with AC mains supply according to EN 13757-2 is necessary to control the M-Bus. For these applications the physical and link layer of EN 13757-2 and the application layer of EN 13757-3 is required.

For wireless meter communications, EN 13757-4 describes several alternatives of walk/drive-by readout via a mobile station or by using stationary receivers or a network. Both unidirectionally and bidirectionally transmitting meters are supported by this standard.
